Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION
This Grade II Listed Georgian building is located in Alcombe on the eastern approach road into Minehead between the medieval village of Dunster and Minehead itself. Indeed, this property is the first guest house on the main road on the left hand side located just past the Community College and within walking distance of the shopping facilities within Alcombe district itself. Due to Alcombe House's position, the business derives much of its turnover from passing trade.
Minehead is West Somerset's premier holiday resort having a population in the region of 8,000 inhabitants boosted during the summer months with the influx of tourists, especially those staying at the ever popular Butlins Holiday Camp within the resort. The resort is often referred to as the gateway to Exmoor National Park and is surrounded by some outstanding coastal scenery and within easy motoring distance of Exmoor and also the Quantock Hills.

THE PROPERTY
Alcombe House is a small Georgian end terraced residence of great charm, built by the Luttrell family of nearby Dunster Castle in 1780 being a Grade II Listed building and with many original features. In the last three years it has been re-decorated, is tastefully presented and the owners have installed gas fired radiator central heating to the ground floor.
The ground floor comprises the main bar lounge and the extensive dining room, together with the commercial kitchen and to the upper floors there are 8 spacious newly refurbished en-suite letting bedrooms. In addition there is a large cellar area with storage space, a wine cellar area, private kitchen area and private lounge. The property stands back from the main road overlooking its own car park and small garden and will be offered for sale comprehensively equipped, subject to trade inventory.
Adjoining the main guest house is a character cottage providing two reception rooms as well as two en-suite bedrooms ideal for a relative or owner's accommodation. This cottage is available with the guest house at an additional asking price of £195,000

THE BUSINESS
Under the personal supervision of the owners the business is operated all year around as a Bed & Breakfast establishment serving the occasional evening meals. There is scope to provide a wider service with the possibility of opening a restaurant on site. Our clients have built up a good client base in the last three years and the business is awarded 4 star AA gold star as well as a high excellent rating on TripAdvisor. We must stress the huge potential to increase the business further. The guest house charges tariffs ranging from £90 per room B&B and an additional £30 for dinner. Single occupancy rate is £58.50 B&B. The business has excellent advanced bookings and is offered comprehensively equipped, subject to trade inventory.
