Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this outstanding bed and breakfast that has been established for over 20 years and has been in the capable hands of our client for the previous 7 years. The only reason this opportunity is being offered to the market is due to retirement. Since owning the business our clients have spent time and money on improving the property to the point where it is now in a walk-in condition for any prospective purchaser. We are advised of a respectable annual turnover which is derived from the letting of our clients 12 beautifully presented rooms which as the only guest house in the locality provide a monopoly trading position for the business. Our clients benefit from a high percentage of repeat and regular customers in particular from their clients based at the Sellafield Nuclear Power Plant providing a regular income stream in addition to tourists that visit the area which is particularly popular with walkers and cyclists. The business has great scope for a further increase in turnover as our clients do very limited advertising and do not currently have a website. There is also great potential to develop the land externally subject to local planning consent. The business does not currently have a bar license again providing scope for any prospective purchaser added to this an evening meal service could potentially see a substantial increase on turnover. This is a fabulous opportunity to purchase a thriving business with great scope to develop further and as such early viewing comes highly recommended to fully appreciate the potential of this outstanding opportunity.
