Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb business and property which comprises of 6 holiday flats with en-suite facilities and exceptional, 2 bedroom owners' accommodation.

The business was established in excess of 25 years ago and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the past 8 years. Our clients are only now, reluctantly offering the business and property to the market due to unfortunate ill health.

In recent times, our clients have found it necessary to operate their business at a pace that suits their needs due to ill health and as a result, they have advised us that the business achieves a respectable annual turnover of 17,000 from a steady stream of repeat customers.

Our clients feel that a new 'hands on' owner would be able to achieve a turnover well in excess of this as historic figures have been in the order of 30,000.

In addition to the steady tourist trade, the business enjoys custom from commercial avenues such as contractors and further attracts 'short-term' contracts from people looking to relocate to the area. The latter, in particular is testament to the very high standards of comfort and cleanliness our clients achieve in the accommodation they provide.

The business also benefits from a user-friendly website which enjoys high rankings on the Google search engine for the keyword phrase 'holiday flats Blackpool' which too, draws customers.

The business would ideally suit a partnership and would afford a good standard of living. Our clients can offer a chain-free transaction from their position and therefore we urge early viewing as opportunities of this quality rarely become available in this area.

Location

The flats are located just off the main A584 coast road in Blackpool, Lancashire. They are ideally situated just 150 yards from the popular South Shore attractions such as the Pleasure Beach, the Sandcastle Water Park and of course the ever popular Promenade.

Blackpool has been a popular destination for holiday makers since Victorian times and is widely regarded as one of the UK's premier tourist destinations. It enjoys an extended season due to the world famous Blackpool Illuminations which bring this popular town alive during months when other coastal destinations have gone into hibernation.

The town is currently undergoing extensive investment from Central Government in the sum of 30,000,000.00 which is planned to regenerate the South Shore area. The flats are within the proposed 'Pleasure Beach Zone' for holiday accommodation, which places this business in a superb position to benefit from the regeneration plans.

Easily reached via the M55 motorway, Blackpool enjoys close links to the northwest motorway network providing access to the M6 motorway and further to the major cities of Preston, Manchester and Liverpool via the M61 and M62 motorways. The Lake District National Park is within one hours drive north of Blackpool making it a popular base to explore the northwest region.

Blackpool's Pleasure Beach have signed a 10.3m deal with the children's broadcaster, Nickelodeon, they will be redeveloping the children's area into 'Nickelodeon Land' this begun construction in autumn 2010 and is scheduled to open in April 2011.

Also Blackpool's South Pier has an 8m redevelopment plan to create an all-year round family attraction. The pier will be transformed into a family entertainment centre featuring a full-size 10-pin bowling alley, large soft play area, food court and American pool lounge.
