The Duke William closed as a pub in 2007 but the vendors opened it as a tea room and then expanded into bed and breakfast, which is the area they now concentrate on.
The village is small but well located and the Duke William is at the heart of the village. Sitting comfortably in around half an acre of hedge lined lovely gardens with ample parking, there is much opportunity for the new owner to expand the business in many directions – restaurant, tea rooms or expand the lettings side.
Sensibly priced to ensure market appeal, this venture is well worth a look for the discerning purchaser seeking a lovely home and lifestyle change.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
Currently run only as a bed and breakfast, the turnover is intentionally kept below the VAT threshold as the vendors have chosen lifestyle over maximising the profit. There is much potential either to expand the lettings side, open the restaurant as a tea room or bistro – there are many options, which in our opinion could all earn money and add value. Metfield is an affluent village and there is much demand in the area for overnight accommodation. Well located for the Heritage Coast and the nearby town of Southwold, there are many ramblers, cyclists and general tourists seeking vittels and a bed for the night.
The majority of the bookings come from either bookings.com , referrals from satisfied returning clients. or folk passing through the village.
