Sellers Comments

This has been a great property for us, the Bed and Breakfast has given us a fabulous little cottage business. Being in such a beautiful town and on the Coast to Coast bicycle route has given us great occupancy levels throughout the year. The property previously been ran as a B&B when we bought it we refurbished it to bring it up to modern standard whilst still leaving the option to turn it back into a house should we ever want to. We have grown the business substantially and recognize there is still a lot of potential to develop this further.
