We are delighted to offer to the market this outstanding self catering holidat let, which has been been established for over 25 years and in the careful hands of our clients for the last 5 years.
The only reason this rare opportunity is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to relocate to a different part of the country to be closer to their immediate family.
Since owning the business our clients have spent in excess of £100,000 refurbishing the property to the point where the business is now in full walk-in condition and presents a true ‘turnkey’ opportunity for any prospective purchaser.
We are advised of an annual turnover of £20,000 with high gross profits which is derived from offering self catering accommodation, our clients have run the business successfully as guest house/B&B but due to unforseen circumstances have had to take a step back and let as self catering accommomdation. The business can easily be run as a bed & breakfast if desired.
The business benefits from a website and is affiliated with an outside booking agent that provides high numbers of visitors. Due to their outstanding reputation our clients see large numbers of repeat and regular visitors.
Due to it’s location, the business is perfectly placed to benefit from large numbers of tourists that visit the area for its many attractions including Cartmel Races, Holker Hall, and those of a more adventurous nature visiting the parachute centre at nearby Cark Airfield.
Our clients also have high numbers of local visitors due to their innovative discount scheme in place for local villagers that wish to take advantage of the business’ outstanding facilities. Trade is good all year round with visitors to the area in the summer seasons while out of season the guest house sees large numbers of contractors that service the nearby caravan parks in the area.
