Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Number 43 was originally a fine Victorian gentleman's residence, built in 1890 of generous proportions, backing onto Arnside Knot which rises behind and facing front-line onto the Estuary bay, hugging the headland now renowned for its waterside walks, looking directly over sands and river to the Lakeland Fells.

Acquired by the current owner in 2006, Number 43 underwent complete refurbishment to now provide six en-suite letting bedrooms, in the style and quality of a luxury boutique hotel, enjoying the exceptional panoramic view from bedrooms, lounge and the stepped terraced front garden alike. With a spacious, welcoming lounge and breakfast/dining room to match, visitor reviews reflect the 5 Star Gold rating with Visit England - a maximum 5 out of 5 on Trip Advisor (based on 184 reviews to date); and awarded Trip Advisor's own 'Certificate of Excellence'. Following happy years of outstanding levels of service, occupancy and profitability, the current owner is now looking to retire from the hospitality sector.

Sitting on the promenade of Arnside village, a beautiful location on the Kent Estuary just 15 minutes from the M6 and with its own railway station, quirky shops, eateries and bakery, art galleries, public houses and beaches. A relaxing place to unwind, spot herons and oystercatchers, just people-watch, or venture out on coastal walks. Go further afield by train on the Furness Railway where estuary waters lap along much of the stunning railway line, or by car to the Cartmel Peninsula (perhaps to the Michelin-starred restaurant L'Enclume in Cartmel) or to the waters of Lake Windermere to the North.  

The Property The property is of stone construction beneath a pitched, tiled roof, with its main accommodation to ground, first and second floors, accessed via generous vestibule, halls and a ballistraded staircase. There is further a lower groundfloor, currently accommodating a large storage room and further 'boot room'.

Manager's Accommodation:
Available by using the large rear reception room as a private lounge, directly off the private kitchen and utilising one of the current letting rooms.

To the rear of the kitchen is a private office space and staff WC. The lower groundfloor level (cellar), is windowed and accessed via stairs opposite the kitchen, this could be developed to create a further bedroom plus ensuite as required (several neighbouring properties have also converted this level), or the rear first floor letting room four plus en-suite can be used.

The current owner has had use of her own premises in Arnside, and has thereby been able to offer more generous public space within Number 43, with separate lounge and dining room, but it is proposed that the current front lounge become the public lounge/dining room should a manager/owner now require their own space.

(It has been confirmed with Visit England that to revert to the planned manager's accommodation as here outlined, would in no way affect the business' five star rating).

Guest Accomodation:
Front reception room (current public lounge) is a bright, generous space with timber sash and case bay windows overlooking the Estuary, marble fireplace with living flame gas fire and recess shelving, and a solid oak floor which continues through double doors to the rear reception room (current dining room). This room has its own feature fireplace with shelving, and full height timber French doors and openers out onto the rear patio.

There are three bedrooms/suites to each of the first and second floors, all with king-size beds. All have en-suite facilities, four en-suite shower rooms and two en-suite bathrooms with showers.

Bathroom fittings are high quality Porcelanosa. All rooms are centrally-heated via radiators, and have flat-screen TV's with Freeview, Wifi, tea and coffee-making facilities, silently running fridges, Bose alarm clock radios and hairdryers.

To the rear on the ground floor is the lovely kitchen with granite worktops, quality units, inset sinks, tiled floor and ample lighting; opening to a further rear office space with fitted units and a laundry room with Velux window, tiled floor and stainless steel sink. Staff WC off.

Externally the property has a large stepped front garden with winding path to the front door, passing delightful planting and plentiful outside table seating areas for guests, where breakfast is served, and enjoying the afternoon and evening sun looking directly over the view to the front. To the rear is a pleasant courtyard garden with Seating and outdoor fireplace, and if altered could provide parking for two smaller vehicles. There is abundant further free parking to the promenade.  

Services Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas are connected to the property. Gas fired central heating.

According to the Valuation Office Agency website, the rateable value will move to £7,200 pa in 2017. For a buyer for whom this is their their sole business, therefore, there are zero rates payable under current small business rates relief. 


The premises are licensed.
