Woolacombe is well known as a very popular destination for family holidays, thanks to its long sandy beach (consistently recognised by bodies such as TripAdvisor as one of the best in the UK), good surf, range of family amusements, and natural beauty. Though this large village’s resident population is small at around 1,000, a very healthy year-round tourist trade helps support a range of businesses including independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, and Woolacombe continues to attract large amounts of investment. North Devon’s commercial centre of Barnstaple is just 12 miles away, and the notable towns and villages of Ilfracombe (5 miles) and Croyde (4 miles) are also nearby. A bus service runs from Woolacombe to Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Mortehoe.
The property itself is situated in a quieter area between Woolacombe and Mortehoe with both village centres a short walk away.
THE PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION
Located in an elevated position, on the 'sea side' of the road, Lundy House Hotel enjoys panoramic views across Woolacombe Bay, Morte Point the Atlantic Ocean and beyond to Lundy Island. As well as the impressive views the property has three important facets being car parking for approximately 10 vehicles, gardens and a detached owners dwelling within the grounds. The car parking was reengineered and extended in 2017 at considerable cost and now provides ample parking for the hotel. From the car park there are gardens and grounds that extend down towards the former Coastal Footpath and within these grounds is the owners 2 bedroomed dwelling with feature glazing to the front to take advantage of the views.
The hotel itself consists of 9 en-suite bedrooms (all named after locations on Lundy Island) on first and second floors, 8 utilised as letting suites with 1 currently used for live in staff. All of the suites are fitted to a high standard, many of which have sea views, bay windows and balconies. The third floor was converted in 2003, from owner's accommodation to a holiday apartment which consists of 3 bedrooms and a feature lounge/kitchen/diner with 2 sets of French doors leading to a large balcony seating area. At ground floor level are two bright and spacious reception rooms, each with a feature bay window, these rooms are currently utilised as a lounge bar and breakfast room. Additional ground floor rooms include kitchen, reception and dry store. As guests pull onto the car park their experience starts with panoramic views of Woolacombe Bay with the reception entrance leading from the car park.
The property itself is one of very few private Hotels left in the area, and the last one the 'sea side' of the main road through the villages of Woolacombe and Morthoe. It is thought the property will appeal to those wishing to offer a truly boutique hotel experience, a grand holiday let / second home or possibly a statement dwelling / residence, subject to PP.
Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest. It should be noted that the owners dwelling is current subject to a 106 Agreement that it is utilised as owners accommodation for the hotel.
Having been in the same husband and wife ownership for the past 24 years, the business operates as a quality Bed & Breakfast with our clients generally running a 6/7 month season through choice. Last year a turnover of £125,000 was achieved with very little marketing undertaken and it is thought this could easily be increased by listing the property on the likes of Booking.com etc. Although owned by a husband and wife partnership, both have other business / employment interest and as such they have a live-in staff member at present.
Any current stock to be purchased at valuation upon completion.
The property is sold with the benefit of a Premises Licence.
The property is sold with a detailed inventory of trade fixtures, fittings and equipment.
