Aspire ( Business and Company Sales Specialists ) are delighted to offer for sale this unique and highly regarded business and property based in mid-Wales. The business specialises in large group self-catering accommodation for up to 28 guests. It has extensive buildings set within two acres of grounds and is adjacent to a 20 acre woodland which is also included in the sale. This is regarded as one of the most unspoilt and picturesque areas of mid-Wales, surrounded by outstanding scenery and stunning views. The grounds are south facing with an abundance of wildlife, breath-taking walks and numerous opportunities for outdoor, leisure and cultural activities in the vicinity. It is easily accessible to the southern edge of Snowdonia National Park as well as only being 35 minutes drive from the miles of white sand at Aberdovey Beach. The area is only 50 miles west of Shrewsbury linking to the M54 and the M6, M5 and M40 motorway network.
This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase such a versatile and thriving large group self-catering business in an unrivalled trading location. The business has been established since 1984 and has built up an enviable reputation, with much repeat custom and countless positive reviews. Often several generations of the same families return annually and generally the business has forward bookings up to 12 months in advance. The premises are ideal for extended families, reunions, significant birthdays, corporate training, Stag / Hen events, as well as just a perfect setting for a private, secluded gathering. Only one booking is taken at a time giving the resident group complete privacy and exclusivity of the premises and grounds. Currently the business has an annual turnover of £135,000 with an anticipated turnover of £140,000 expected in 2019. There remains plenty of scope to increase turnover further as the business closes for four weeks each year and is operated at a pace to suit the current owner - generally taking weekend only bookings. The business has only just been offered for sale due to retirement.
The main accommodation sleeps 28 guests within 13 bedrooms, spread between two adjacent buildings with plenty of room for additional put-up beds if desired. It has extensive lounge and dining areas ( all guests can dine together ), as well as an impressive kitchen and numerous bath / shower rooms. Guests have exclusive use of the heated indoor swimming pool as well as the sauna, squash court, table tennis, badminton and pool table facilities. The accommodation is set within two acres of private grounds with spectacular views in all directions. Guests have access to the Summer House as well as patios, BBQ, camp fire and gazebo areas or can stroll alongside the adjacent stream or walk into the 20acre private woodland. Guests have the choice of catering for themselves or fully catered meals can be arranged for them from a local catering company.
The property has several ‘green’ credentials with self-sustainable heating and electricity - powered by a 80kw biomass boiler linked to a 1000 gallon hot water tank. In addition, there are photovoltaic panels on the roof and solar heating for the swimming pool. The biomass boiler even uses logs from the woodland on the grounds. In addition, the boiler generates an annual income of £9,500pa through the Renewable Heat Incentive, as well as providing heat and electricity to the whole site.
Currently the owners (or managers accommodation) is within a stunning two-bedroom self-contained cottage with feature exposed oak beams, real fireplace and feature stone walls. The property is
linked to one of the letting wings, allowing for more private accommodation or more letting rooms, depending on personal requirements.
On of the most appealing aspects of this property is the 20acre woodland that is included within the sale. The woodland has a separate access road and service roads within the wood which has been well managed and was last clear felled approximately 60 years ago. The woodland has stunning southerly views and would be ideal for a log cabin self-catering development subject to planning consent. The lower section of the wood has a large natural hollow which would make an ideal lake further enhancing the log cabin setting. The woodland would have sufficient water supply as there is already a natural spring within the wood suitable for a bore hole. Aspire can assist in the planning, costings, design and construction required for the woodland if required.
