Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Castlebrook Holiday Cottages. The property was converted into holiday lets in 2005 by our client. A lot of hard work has gone into transforming this farm to a perfect holiday location. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The business lets out holiday cottages in the beautiful village of Compton Dundon. This is a peaceful location that has excellent connections to surrounding towns in the South West of England. There is a main farm house, this is a substantial sized property, perfect for a family looking to relocate to the area. There are also two other properties which are also used as holiday lets. One of the properties is a two bed and the other has three bedrooms. Our client offers bed and breakfasts on request.
This village is a popular location with tourists, due to the great attractions which are close by. The relaxed laid back feel of the village is also very attractive to those that live in the hustle and bustle of busy towns and cities.
Our client is currently running the business at a steady pace, allowing for huge scope to increase turnover. We are advised the current turnover is around £20,000 per annum. There is high potential to bring this figure up to £100,000. This letting business requires a purchaser who has experience in the trade, who is looking to work hands on at the business.
The site boasts 3 acres of land, making this a perfect place for a campsite. A campsite could prove to be highly popular and would be a great plus in the warmer summer months. There is an opportunity to purchase a further 5 acres of fields, this would be perfect for the campsite. The 5 acre plot is available at an extra cost of £60,000.
There are other options the new owner should look into, such as a kennels or cattery. A purchaser with some great ideas could make a huge success of this business.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. With so much potential this really is an exceptional purchase for a hands on purchaser. Our client has maintained this sites beauty and has developed an excellent business. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full extent of this Freehold opportunity.
