Beechwood Guest House, Dartmoor - PRICE REDUCED

Beechwood Guest House, Dartmoor - PRICE REDUCED - 3rd March 2017

IMPRESSIVE DETACHED BED AND BREAKFAST BUSINESS SET IN 6 ACRES WITHIN DARTMOOR NATIONAL PARK

The characterful property of the Beechwood Guest House, situated in a prominent position within the Dartmoor National Park, is being offered to market by agents Stonesmith, for a recently reduced sale price of £355,000.

The property is situated on one of the main routes across the Dartmoor National Park and benefits from visible signage from both directions. The well-known and popular moorland towns of Moretonhampstead and Tavistock are just 8 and 12 miles away respectively. Postbridge itself is a honeypot tourist destination which attracts visitors year-round. Currently trading on a Bed and Breakfast basis, the Beechwood offers occasional evening meals and in the summer months cream teas. The business also benefits from a license to sell alcohol. The high standards inherent throughout ensure a regular flow of repeat business and word of mouth recommendations, and the prominent roadside position ensures a regular and steady passing trade.

The detached character property is in first class order throughout and has been sensitively renovated and refurbished during the present owner’s time. Features include four granite fireplaces (three with wood burning stoves) and a four-oven Aga. The accommodation provides 7 bedrooms (5 used for letting), 4 bath/shower rooms, an owners lounge, residents lounge, dining room, conservatory/sun room/breakfast room, boot room, reception hall, large kitchen and utility.

Externally the property is set in 6 acres of grounds and includes 2 hay meadows, a paddock with stables, parking for 10 plus vehicles, attractive lawned gardens, vegetable and herb gardens, a greenhouse, chicken coop and wooden storage shed. There are also a useful range of outbuildings and an owners single garage.

The business is currently run by a husband and wife partnership, trading to fit in with their current lifestyle, and choosing to keep the turnover just below the VAT threshold. Therefore there is an opportunity for the new owners to develop the trade and all aspects of the business.

As with the majority of business premises in Dartmoor National Park, Beechwood is for sale under the terms of a Duchy lease. Information is available from the agents Stonesmith, who are looking for offers off a recently reduced guide price of £355,000. Full details can be downloaded from the website www.stonesmith.co.uk and viewings arranged by calling 01392 201262.
