Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this stunning, well-established bed and breakfast business with an enviable reputation. Doune House B&B has been trading for many years and under the ownership of our clients; only now is it being offered for sale due to our client’s desire to retire from the industry.

The business has an excellent reputation with guests for the high-quality service, excellent accommodation and delicious breakfast cuisine, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals; all resulting in many positive reviews. The business attracts bookings from all over the globe with many of these being repeat visitors due to the quality accommodation on offer, and is popular with tourists, golf, fishing, wedding parties, walkers, business people, one off weekend breaks and contractors.

Over the last few years the bed and breakfast has undergone a programme of refurbishment and can now be found in outstanding condition throughout.

The turnover is generated by offering 3 letting rooms within this substantial Victorian property, rooms consist of 1 double en-suite room on the ground floor, 1 twin room with private bathroom and 1 family room with private shower room, all rooms offer TV with Freeview and Wi-Fi facilities.  There is also a lounge for guests to use during their stay.

Breakfast is served in the spacious dining room with our clients using only the best quality ingredients and locally sourced produce where possible.

The B&B has an excellent website in place to advertise the business and the services offered, along with the option to book a room. The Doune House also benefits from free on street parking to the front on the main street.

In addition to the main house, the property also benefits from having the former Post Office attached to the right-hand side of the property and can be directly accessed via the main house. This is a fantastic space and is currently utilised by our client in the form of a pop-up shop that is rented out on a weekly basis generating further income. Any potential purchaser could possible extend the main house with the redevelopment of the former Post Office (subject to local authority planning) to expand the lettings business or indeed turn it in to a self-contained annex .

There is scope to further increase turnover with the introduction of online partner booking sites and perhaps national press marketing to attract and grow the weekend break experience, along with offering golfing packages with the many local and world-famous golf courses almost on the door step.

This is a tremendous opportunity to own a highly desirable business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Doune House B&B and former Post Office is located in the village of Edzell, Angus. The bed and breakfast is 5 miles north of Brechin, by the river North Esk.

Edzell is a Georgian-era planned town, with a broad main street and a grid system of side streets. Originally called Slateford, Edzell was renamed in 1818 after an earlier hamlet 1.5 mile (2.5 km) to the west, which by then had been abandoned.

Edzell has an attractive community which offers a selection of shops, restaurants, a Post Office, medical centre and primary school. Activities nearby include salmon fishing, grouse shooting, listed walks and a bowling club.

The area is well serviced in terms of amenities and also has both an 18 & 9 hole golf course.

Doune House B&B is located in a substantial, beautifully presented Victorian period property that has been tastefully refurbished whilst retaining many of the attractive period features, with the guest rooms, en-suites, and bathrooms finished to a tasteful standard.

Bright front shop area suitable for a range of uses along with a further rear shop area and storage. This could perhaps be utilised subject to local authority planning for an extension to the main house to increase the lettings rooms or could be made into, self-contained annex for family accommodation or a self-catering style holiday let.
