• Separate self contained 3-bedroom owner’s accommodation
• Suite range of other commercial or residential uses, subject to planning
The hotel has been run since 2004 by the current husband and wife team, who are now seeking to retire. They are currently only operating on a low-key basis Monday to Thursday offering dinner, bed and breakfast to business guests The Hotel is an excellent base for visitors to the western Lake District and Seascale also offers beaches, coastal walks and a golf course. There is year-round trade from professionals and contractors visiting the Sellafield site which lies about 5 miles to the north. It has a premises licence and 5-star food hygiene rating. There is enormous potential to grow the business back to where it was in the past by opening weekends, opening the restaurant to non-residents, offering other catering services and listing on booking websites. Full accounts will be made available to bona fide applicants, normally after viewing. Alternatively, the property would also suit conversion to a range of other commercial or residential uses.
