Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular guest house business, which is ideally located within the town of Porthcawl, Wales.

The business was established by our clients in 2009 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to move abroad. The business currently operates all year round, closing only for holiday breaks, and generates a turnover in the region of £55,100 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 44%.

Our clients offer 5 guest bedrooms, all of which are en-suite, on a bed and breakfast only basis. All of the bedrooms are comfortable, spacious and modern, which have all been tastefully decorated.

The property also boasts two-bedroom owners’ accommodation, with a large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen, which is decorated to a very high standard, as well as two bedrooms, a double on the first floor with en-suite and a large double on the second floor, with en-suite and balcony.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the very high quality of the accommodation offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The guest house has also been awarded a Certificate of Excellence on the popular website TripAdvisor for 2013/2014. The business already has an excellent and informative website in place at

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by registering one of the owners’ bedrooms as a guest room. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent accommodation offered. There is also scope to offer evening meals to gusts, should a new owner desire.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The Butterfly Guest House occupies substantial three storey premises, ideally located on Mary Street in the coastal town of Porthcawl in Mid Glamorgan, Wales. The property is surrounded by complimentary businesses and residential properties, just a two-minute walk from the Esplanade and beach. The business benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as on-street parking facilities to the front of the premises.

Porthcawl is a town and community on the south coast of Wales in the county of Bridgend. The town is a very popular holiday resort and has an extensive promenade and several beaches, two of which are Blue Flag beaches: Trecco Bay lies at the east end of the town and Rest Bay lies to the northwest.

Tourist attractions in the town include a grand pavilion, a funfair named Coney Beach, a museum and three golf courses. Porthcawl Town Carnival takes place annually in July. A procession of themed floats and acts make their way around the town, collecting money for charity.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Pyle, which is just over 3 miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A4106 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Port Talbot is approximately 11 miles away and Cardiff is 29 miles away.
