Green Gables Guest House occupies a prominent location in the town of Windermere, in the South Lakeland District of the County of Cumbria.

Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market, Green Gables Guest House, a well established and profitable concern, only reluctantly offered for sale as our client wishes to retire.

Green Gables was established as a Guest House in 1975, and has been under the careful control of clients since 2004. Currently the business is being run very much at a pace to suit the needs of our client, thus the potential for development of the business is a very achievable prospect.

As a result of the long trading history, the Guest House enjoys regular repeat custom and furthermore has achieved and retained a 3 Star AA rating as well as being highly regarded on travel review websites, one example being trip advisor. Further, Green Gables is also featured on many other travel websites, including interactive booking from the 3rd party websites.

Green Gables offers clients all the expected services and facilities within a Guest House including food service, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities, colour TV's and an 'honesty bar' for guest usage. The guest house has recently had double glazing installed to the front and back in compliance with The Lake District National Park Association guidelines and further benefits from new guttering and down pipes and the front of the property has been freshly painted.

As previously mentioned, there is great scope to expand the business, as currently it is being run very much at a pace to suit the owners, for example the business would sit ideally on a variety of the up and coming group discount websites such as groupon. This way the business would offer discount on special breaks but would ensure room occupancy outside the season and hopefully secure some valuable repeat custom.

The building has been extremely well maintained throughout, with careful attention being paid to the overall look and feel of the Guest House.

The three storey, stone built, mid terrace briefly comprises:

Ground Floor

Attractive entrance vestibule with welcoming reception area, leading to a good sized guest lounge with fully licensed honesty bar, recently refurbished modern dining room suitable for 17 diners, well appointed modern kitchen - fully equipped with a utility room housing a commercial washing machine / tumble dryer. To the rear of the utility room is an addtiional accessory apartment with fully equipped small kitchen and one en-suite bedroom. The ground floor is completed with one single en-suite letting room.

First Floor

To the first floor there are two large family rooms, one with en-suite facilities, the other with its own private bathroom and one double room with en-suite shower room.

Second Floor

To the second floor there are two large double rooms one with a private bathroom the other with en-suite facilities and one large family room with a separate bathroom.


To the front of the property there is an attractive garden with well maintained plants and greenery. To the rear of the property there is a good sized courtyard leading to the coach house.

The attractive coach house building at the rear of the property is currently used as owners accommodation, comprising of lounge, kitchen, family bathroom, two double bedrooms and two single bedrooms.

A potential new owner may wish to convert the current coach house building and incorporate this as being part of the guest house, thus increasing the number of rooms available. Such an expansion would be relatively straightforward to accomplish and would almost certainly increase revenue, as for the vast majority of the summer months, Green Gables operates at 100% occupancy.
