Bridlington is a coastal town and civil parish on the Holderness Coast of the North Sea. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 35,369. Bridlington is a minor sea fishing port with a working harbour and is well-known for its shellfish. It has a mix of small businesses across the manufacturing, retail and service sectors, with its prime trade being with tourism in the summer months.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with the bus station within easy walking distance of the property. Bridlington railway station is approximately half a mile away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with both the A165 and A614 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Scarborough is approximately 22 miles away and York is 43 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular guest house business in the coastal resort of Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire.

The business was established in the 1950s and has been in our clients' careful ownership since 2005. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients' desire for a well-deserved retirement. The guest house currently operates 9 months of the year and generates a turnover in the region of 39,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 80%.

Our clients offer 8 guest letting rooms over the ground, first and second floors on a bed and breakfast only basis. The property boasts over 230 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and all the guest rooms are decorated to a very high standard.

The guest house has recently been inspected by the Bridlington Tourism Association, which is equivalent of 3-star Visit England. The Tennyson was also the 2013 winner of Certificate of Excellence by the popular travel website Trip Advisor, as well as having tremendous customer reviews on the website.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of the accommodation and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The guest house already has an informative website at

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by operating the business all year round. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the rooms and service offered. There is also scope to apply for an alcohol licence and offer evening meals to guests.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
