Description
Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale Leven House, a well-presented Guest House situated in Crieff. Leven House provides bed and breakfast for guests in a commanding property with elegant interior making the business very popular with a lot of repeat customers. The business has been under the ownership of our clients for 43 years and has been in the family for over 80 years. During our clients ownership, the business has traded as a hotel but more recently has been trading as a Bed & Breakfast. Throughout this time, the property has been kept to a very good standard and currently holds a 3 * visit Scotland award. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their wish to retire. Leven House enjoys a good turnover but still has massive potential to increase turnover as the business is currently run to a pace that suits the owners.

Crieff offers a range of excellent amenities, all within 5 minutes of The Leven House B&B, including a wide variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, medical centre, recreational facilities and education needs are also well catered for at both primary and secondary schooling level. The nearest mainline train station is located at Gleneagles and there are good transport links via road to the main central Scotland road network.
