Location - Trehellas House Hotel and Restaurant is situated equidistant between Bodmin and Wadebridge, is close to the Moor, the neighbouring Pencarrow Estate, the Ruthern Valley and of course the North Cornish coast at Padstow and Rock.

Trehellas is situated in the hamlet of Washaway and was originally known as the Washaway Inn which was built near the junction of 3 ancient tracks, marked by a Celtic Cross, which now stands on the green in front of the house.

The Property - It is understood Trehellas House was built as an Inn by the Molesworth family, from the neighbouring estate in the early 18th Century and over its years has been an Inn, a Court of Petty Sessions and after it lost its Liquor Licence in 1890 became a farmhouse. The property as it is known today came into being in the 1970s, has been in our clients tenure since 2006 who are now selling due to semi-retirement plans away from this sector, having enjoyed a long career in hospitality.

The modest exterior of Trehellas belies the size and scale of the property, with several large attachments to the rear and a secondary building (the Cow Shed and Coach House), which houses 7 of the 12 letting rooms, with beautiful indigenous stone elevations under a natural slate roof, the property exudes much character and charm both externally and indeed internally in the public areas and the well-presented letting guest bedrooms.

Trehellas House sits within generous gardens and grounds of circa 1.5 acres (to be verified by interested parties), with approximately half of that land being given over to a lawned area and paddock to the side of the property, which we understand had Planning Permission (now lapsed) for 3 further guest letting units or for the construction of a 4 bedroom owners/managers property.

Another major boon of Trehellas is the very sizable and indeed well presented 2 bedroom owners accommodation (to the far left of the principal building as one looks at it), which has its own entrance and private rear garden.

The Business - As mentioned previously Trehellas has traded since the 1970s, has been in our clients tenure since 2006, during which time they have undertaken significant improvement and updating of the property and today have a strong consistent business that shows steady increase in turnover and indeed profitability, with approximately a 60/40% split in favour of food and beverage and accommodation. We understand Trehellas was awarded Taste of the West Gold Award and also has an AA Rosette food Award, both for 2017.

The turnover for the latest year (October 2016) showed net sales of circa £425,000, with a gross profit level of 79% and an adjusted net profit of £113,000 (after deducting all normal overheads and a wage level of approximately 30% of turnover).
