Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this husband and wife run bed and breakfast which has been established for over 50 years and in the careful hands of our clients since 2003. The only reason this excellent business is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to concentrate on other business interests.

Since our clients took ownership of the business they have grown a steady stream of custom. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade.

Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at 76,000 which is derived from offering high quality letting rooms, a delicious breakfast menu and a welcoming, friendly customer service.

Our clients offer an extensive award winning breakfast in the dining room. In addition to this they offer their guests a breakfast in bed service and a takeaway service where guests can takeaway a hot breakfast sandwich if desired.

Our clients have invested time and money into the business ensuring that the premises are modernised creating an excellent living accommodation for the owners and guests.
