The Lincolnshire Coast is host to two very different seaside experiences, the Fun Coast and the Rural Coast. The Fun Coast, stretching from Skegness to Mablethorpe is home to some of the finest seaside resorts in the UK. The most famous resort must be Skegness one of the UK’s top seaside destinations and famous for the Jolly Fisherman. Mablethorpe is an excellent resort with lots of fun for all the family and Sutton on Sea and Trusthorpe have a quality and charm all of their own. Between and beyond the popular beaches the haunt of wildlife thrives in the unbroken tranquillity of the Rural Coast. Gibraltar Point, Saltfleetby, Crook Bank, Moggs Eye and more all reward those seeking the natural coastline. It is a haven for nature lovers, birdwatchers, conservationists and romantics. These wild stretches of sand are some of the Lincolnshire’s greatest natural assets. A charming seaside village, Sutton on Sea has a tranquil and safe atmosphere. The award winning beach is the jewel in the crown on this lovely quiet resort. There is much to discover, the golden beach, Pleasure Gardens, paddling pool, tennis and crazy golf to name but a few activities to be found here.
Approximately 12 miles from Skegness along the A52 with all its amenities and just 3 miles from the resort of Mablethorpe where in the early 1800s as a young boy Alfred Lord Tennyson and his brothers were taken on holiday. Alfred & Charles later found lodgings and in 1827 published “Poems by Two Brothers” said to have been written in the town.

Guy Simmonds hold this 1 day NCPLH Course every 2 weeks. Please telephone us to reserve your place or book on-line at

The business is offered for sale freehold (Title Deeds not seen). We are advised that the inn benefits from all mains services and uses gas central heating (no services seen or tested). Business rates are advised as currently being £2,920 per annum.

The current owners took over the business in October 1989 as a family concern in this established business. This offers an ideal opportunity for new owner operators to continue with the excellent reputation that the current vendor client has achieved along with having the huge scope to take the food sales to the next level and increase turnover and profit accordingly.
Current sales are circa £175,000+ (inc) with 75% wet trade and 25% food. We calculate the reconstituted net profits (i.e. adding back finance costs, depreciation and other expenses) of a very impressive circa £49,000.
The asking price reflects the location and the current trading foundation. In our opinion the growth of the food trade will considerably increase turnover and gross profit. The inclusion of letting rooms is also a viable option for this high tourist traffic part of the country.
This is an absolutely superb business and lifestyle opportunity with genuine growth potential.

Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
