This is well established family run business.
There is the added benefit of a 2-bedroom bungalow and 5 letting chalets, included in the sale price. Of traditional construction the property is in good condition throughout and provides great potential for further ongoing development. Enjoying a loyal customer base, it is well positioned to attract new business and those in search of a business investment are recommended to view.
The business has an excellent and comprehensive website in place to promote the business and the services offered, as well as online booking facilities, which are easy to use.
There is scope for a new owner to convert part of the guest house to offer owners` accommodation.
