Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest.
Having been in the same husband and wife ownership for the past 10 years our clients are now seeking to retire. The business is traded Easter - end September on a B&B basis only, with our clients choosing to take time off over the winter months and for limited periods during the season. Furthermore our clients choose to only let 6 of the letting bedrooms with the majority of trade being advanced bookings. Very little 'walk-in' trade is sought, therefore it is considered there is scope to increase revenue. Lynton and the Exmoor area attracts visitors and walkers all year round and new owners may wish to take advantage of this by offering an extended season and / or offering evening meals. 2018 yearend provided a turnover of £55,000 and a net profit of approximately £38,000, with much of the trade derived from repeat customers as well as bookings from walking holiday organisations, these include British, German and Dutch companies. In previous years when 8 bedrooms were let and the owners traded a slightly longer season they achieved turnovers of approximately £70,000. Our clients have achieved a 5 star Trip Advisor rating and have their own website www.leehouse-lynton.co.uk, whilst also having online booking availability via Booking.com, Expedia etc.
Any current stock to be purchased at valuation upon completion.
The property is sold with an inventory of trade fixtures, fittings and equipment.
