A rare opportunity to acquire a comfortable Home and Income derived from a successful small Bed & Breakfast Establishment with an adjoining one bedroom Cottage (which has holiday and private letting capacity) then, just across from the main Farmhouse, is a spacious modern two bedroom ‘bungalow’ style unit. Both Cottages are presently used, very successfully, for holiday letting.
As you would expect there are lots of lovely character features through the barn including exposed stone, slate, beams and wooden doors and at present the guests have two guest suites to choose from, both with a lounge area main bedroom and a modern shower room/WC
Guests also have use of the lovely characterful dining room for breakfast and the bonus of being able to have free reign in the lovely grounds for a walk or take a picnic by the lake and there is a small dog kennel for guests to use free of charge, by arrangement.
The kitchen/ breakfast room is well equipped featuring a Butler sink, wooden worksurfaces,a central island (The LPG fired Worcester boiler supplies the domestic hot water and heating,) with the excellent water pressure at all three properties this creates powerful showers and taps throughout, with heating supplemented by productive wood burning stove located in the sitting room.
This super reception room has doors out onto a south facing balcony stairs to a mezzanine storage area and a fantastic fireplace with exposed beams and stonework.
This has been used most recently as an annexe for a dependent relative but it’s now a fully functioning letting unit adding to the potential income.
The accommodation comprises of a lounge/ dining room with an open plan kitchen, a downstairs cloakroom, a modern conservatory which is an ideal place to enjoy the view, giving access to the private garden.
Stairs lead to the generous double bedroom and ensuite bathroom. A log burner is a lovely focal point in the lounge/diner with electric heating in all of the rooms. Kingfisher comes with its own off-road parking space and is an ideal holiday let or annexe depending on buyers requirements.
Converted from outbuildings, Brook Cottage is a holiday use only bungalow, set securely in the grounds of Lew Barn.
Converted to a high standard this two bedroom property benefits from a quality kitchen, stocked with built-in appliances, a superb wet room, a tiled floor throughout, electric heating and, via patio doors, access is gained to a lovely sunny, private patio. Again guests have use of the gardens and grounds and an off-road parking space.
A rare opportunity to acquire a comfortable Home with Income derived from a successful small Bed & Breakfast Establishment as well from the two holiday cottages.
The adjoining one bedroom Cottage (Kingfisher Cottage) and just across from the main Farmhouse, a modern two Bedroom spacious Holiday “Bungalow” style unit. (Brook Cottage)
Open throughout the year, with times to suit the owner there is potential to take in the region of £40,000 per annum. The business is currently operated by a couple with no staff employed as a home and supplementary income to support pensions. We must emphasise the potential to grow the business and possibly develop the top tier of ground just above the Lake with maybe Chalets, Caravans or possibly Yurts for up market Camping (subject to planning consent). The property will be offered for sale fully furnished and equipped as a going concern excluding those items of a personal nature. A record of takings are available to seriously interested parties who have inspected the property.
A pre-application to Torridge District Council has been sought by my clients for two ‘log or similar holiday letting cabins’ as a first phase, ‘followed by two further cabins, dependent on the success of the first two,’ to complement the applicant’s existing B & B business. The contents of the full report are available upon request and a firm offer, although in conclusion the council say, 'although this type of accommodation in the countryside would not normally be supported, if information can be submitted which evidences that there is existing tourist accommodation, the principle of the holiday cabins would be supported, because it is considered that they will improve or diversify the range by complimenting the existing.'
Being fed by, and being part of, a natural water course, the lake forms a beautiful part of the 1.5 acres of gardens and grounds. There is a meadow, rich with flora and fauna surrounding the lake with a lovely timber summerhouse and timber workshop. There is also separate gated access from the road and is the area of the property where potential lies to create the caravans or yurts as mentioned previously, subject to the necessary consents. Surrounding the Barn itself are well-stocked flower beds and directly opposite is an area of lawn which is ideal alfresco dining area and enjoy the sun for the bulk of the day.
Kingfisher Cottage has its own well enclosed garden. The patio at Brook cottage is very private from the rest of the properties.
