Full descriptionA beautiful 5-star contemporary country house B&B with separate cottage, in an elevated and totally private rural setting with panoramic views over the Vale of Llangollen.
Description - Geufron Hall is a beautiful 5-star contemporary country house B&B in an elevated and totally private rural setting with a separate 3 bedroom cottage, extensive multi-purpose outbuildings and super surrounding gardens and paved terraces, with stunning views over the Vale of Llangollen and beyond, yet still within walking distance of the well-known town of Llangollen.
The property makes a wonderful spacious family home but is, at present, being run as a highly successful Bed & Breakfast business, with four En-suite letting Bedrooms which has gained an excellent reputation for high quality service and first class accommodation, enjoying regular and repeat trade, being ranked by Trip Advisor as the number 1 Bed & Breakfast in the Llangollen area and number 3 in Wales. It was even named as one of the coolest hotels in Wales in March 2015, by The Guardian newspaper. This is, therefore, an excellent opportunity to purchase a one-off country house with a separate cottage and a true lifestyle business in one of the most scenic areas of Wales.
The residence offers well-proportioned period internal accommodation of immense charm and character extending to just under 4000 sqft including a large Kitchen/Breakfast room, Utility room, Pantry, Dining room, Living room and Conservatory on the ground floor together with 7 Bedrooms in total (4 letting/ 3 private) on the first floor.
Included in the sale, also, is Treetops, a detached three Bedroom period cottage, which would be ideal for family accommodation or for letting out in conjunction with Geufron Hall, which would provide significant additional income.
The property has wonderful gardens and grounds, with extensive lawns and paved terracing, making a lovely area for outside dining/entertaining/ general sitting. There is an unusual and attractive Garden room currently utilised as a high-end remote-working office space but offering potential for conversion into further living accommodation as it already has a Kitchen area, log burning stove and power connected. The property is further complimented by an extensive range of multi-purpose Outbuildings, currently used for livestock rearing, garaging and workshops, and these, also, have potential for a number of alternative usages, including the possibility of conversion in to letting/ancillary accommodation (subject to necessary Planning Permission).
The sale of Geufron Hall, therefore, provides an unusual opportunity to purchase a highly reputed and successful Bed & Breakfast business together with a separate detached cottage, Outbuildings and wonderful gardens and grounds in such a stunning setting, just outside the popular and well known town of Llangollen.
Viewing this property is highly recommended to appreciate the quality of the property and the possibilities that it still has for further B&B expansion.
Situation - Geufron Hall is situated in a wonderful unspoilt elevated rural location with panoramic views over the Vale of Llangollen and surrounding countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and a World Heritage Site. However, is still in walking distance from the popular and noted town of Llangollen, which has a wonderful range of Restaurants, Wine Bars, Bistros and Cafes and is situated in the heart of the picturesque Dee Valley. The area is extremely popular with tourists who visit the many attractions and leisure facilities in and around the town such as the Llangollen canal, Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, Plas Newydd and Llangollen Railway. Llangollen is, perhaps, most famous for the International Musical Eisteddfod, which is held annually in the Royal International Pavilion and attracts visitors from all over the world. The town is, also, easily accessible by car via the A5, the A539 and the A542, making commuting a viable option.
Geufron Hall Bed & Breakfast History - Geufron Hall has been run by the present vendors as a most successful and highly regarded Bed & Breakfast business, established over the last 4 years. There are high occupancy levels with regular and repeat business, with the ethos to ensure that guests enjoy the perfect Welsh holiday, ensuring that all food is locally sourced wherever possible, even rearing their own pigs and hens.
Education - In addition to excellent local state schools in the town, private education is available at Moreton Hall (girls), Ellesmere College (mixed) and Oswestry school (mixed) together with Kings and Queens schools in Chester and a number of preparatory schools within easy motoring distance.
Gardens And Grounds - The property is approached along a private drive, through a five bar timber entrance gate with stone walling to either side and on to a parking and manoeuvring area to the front and side of the residence. The drive is bordered by lawned gardens leading on to a raised paved patio area extending the width of the front of the property and continuing around the one side providing a lovely space for outdoor entertaining. The paved terrace enjoys super views over the town of Llangollen and surrounding countryside.
Steps lead from the side patio area to a further raised patio terrace bordered by the well-stocked vegetable garden and orchard. Beyond the vegetable garden/orchard is an enclosed compound currently used for livestock. This leads on, in turn, to an enclosed paddock, currently down to permanent pasture.
Outbuildings - The tarmacadam drive continues to an additional car parking area to the side of Treetops, which is fronted by a double Garage. There is a further most useful Workshop Building and a Double Garage/Workshop building which has great potential for conversion in to additional living accommodation, if required (subject to Planning Permission). A gate leads from this area to a further building, currently used for pig rearing.
Directions - From the south proceed to Llangollen via the A5 and turn right at the traffic lights into Castle Street (the main street running through the town). Cross over the river towards the steam railway station, and on reaching a T-junction at the end of the bridge, turn right and then immediately left by the taxidermists. Follow the road up a steep, narrow road and over a small bridge that crosses the canal, then turn left at the T-junction into Dinbren Road. Follow this road past Dinas Bran school passing the playing fields and then turn right just before the double-yellow lines end. This is a sharp turning that almost takes you back on yourself, and is then a single-track road. Follow this road all the way up the hill and Geufron Hall will be located at the end.
