Rose Cottage Guest House occupies substantial two-storey premises, ideally located in a rural setting in Clayton-le-Dale, within Ribble Valley, Lancashire. The property is situated midway between Preston and Clitheroe on the A59 at the gateway of the picturesque Ribble Valley, therefore the business benefits from a very high volume of passing trade. The guest house is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and visitors to the area and The Yorkshire Dales, which are just a 20 minute drive away.

The property boasts off road parking facilities and a undercover cycle lock, as well as being able to accommodate a limited number of motorbikes with undercover parking. The area of the business is served by the public transport system with a bus stop just a few minutes walk away from the property. The area has excellent road links being just 5 miles away from junction 31 of the M6 motorway, which links to the extensive motorway network.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular guest house business within the village of Clayton-le-Dale, Ribble Valley, Lancashire. The idyllic 200 year old cottage was established as a guest house by our clients in 1984 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement.

The business operates as and when required and generates a turnover in the region of 31,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 75%. Our clients offer four beautiful and elegantly furnished guest bedrooms, which include either en-suite shower rooms or private bathrooms. All the rooms are furnished with flat-screen TVs, radio alarm clocks, iPod docking facilities, tea/coffee making facilities and hair dryers. The guest rooms also boast refrigerators and microwave ovens.

Our clients also provide a full English breakfast, which is freshly prepared from local produce. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the industry for the high quality and friendly services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The guest house also boasts excellent reviews on the popular website Trip Advisor.

We feel the business could increase the turnover as the guest house is currently run at a pace to suit our clients present lifestyle, and currently open 9 months out of the year, opening up the potential to further profit by running the business at full capacity. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the services offered. The business has an excellent and comprehensive website in place to promote the business at, which we feel would benefit from online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this popular and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
