THE BUSINESS
Braeside Guest House is presented in first class order throughout and is a well established and well-regarded Bed & Breakfast business. The property has been comprehensively refurbished to a high standard throughout by our clients during their 16 years of ownership and it occupies a prominent trading position in Exeter city centre. The high standards also ensure excellent reviews and strong levels of repeat business and word of mouth recommendations. Through personal choice, our clients choose to trade the business on a Bed & Breakfast only basis and do not offer evening meals. Braeside benefits from a strong web presence and has its own website www.braesideguesthouse.co.uk which in turn is linked to a number of well-known online accommodation booking sites. There are excellent levels of repeat trade and its high-profile trading position means there is always a good amount of passing trade and consequently the business benefits from strong levels of forward bookings. The business is run by our clients, a husband and wife partnership with no staff employed.

TRADING INFORMATION
Our clients have chosen to limit the trade of the business right up to the VAT threshold of £85,000. Consequently they have traded the business for only 40/42 weeks of the year, however, there is little doubt that the business could easily trade well in excess of the VAT threshold. Full accounting information for this extremely profitable business can be made available to interested parties, following a formal viewing appointment.

POTENTIAL
We believe that Braeside is an excellent opportunity to purchase an established and highly impressive bed and breakfast business, in a prime trading position and which still offers tremendous potential to develop all aspects of the trade, as desired. There are undoubted opportunities for new owners to increase the number of weeks that the business trades. Braeside is a stunning and profitable home and business and businesses in such sought-after locations are always in very short supply, but those which provide an such an enviable lifestyle and still offer genuine potential, such as Braeside, are very rare indeed. An internal viewing is essential in order to fully appreciate all that this enviable business opportunity has to offer.
