Our clients have run the business for the last 10 years building a good reputation among guests as well as receiving excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and booking.com. Our clients are now looking to sell their business interest due to retirement. Income is generated predominantly from tourist trade in the summer months and a combination of tourists, workers and families of students in the winter months.
Our clients have operated the business hands on with part time assistance from one cleaner and operate year round, closing for a short period over Christmas and New Year.
We are advised that the letting bedroom tariffs range from £35 per night for a single room to £100 per night for a family room all of which includes a cooked breakfast. Discounts are provided for longer term stays or if no breakfast is required.
Income is generally in the region of £70,000 per annum. Our clients trade below the VAT threshold through choice, and the business offers excellent potential for a couple or similar to operate hands on and increase trade.
Full financial documentation will be provided to interested parties only after viewing and confirmation of interest.
The asking price includes the trade inventory which, we are advised, is owned outright and is not subject to any lease purchase, hire contract or similar finance arrangement.
