An ideal lifestyle business, easily run by a couple but with comfortable accommodation for more.
The business currently trades from Easter to October, but could trade a longer season if new owners so choose. Lynton & Lynmouth is located on the coast in an area of the Exmoor National Park popular with families during school holidays and walkers, who come all year round.
During August 2021, only self-catering was offered, to minimal impact on profit.
Annual turnover is around £70,000pa, which could be increased with a longer season (especially Christmas and New Year) or by offering evening meals, packed lunches etc.
The business is offered as a going concern with website, established social media accounts, all furniture, fixtures, fittings and trade equipment necessary to trade immediately.
The owners are happy to arrange a hand-over period if new owners would like some initial training. The new owners will also be welcome to join the Facebook Group for local hospitality traders, which is a valuable source of advice, tips and support.
Castle Hill House does not have its own car park; guests drop off luggage and use one of the villages car parks which is 2 minutes walk from the guesthouse.
