Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Clarke's is a busy owner operated hotel and restaurant which is pleasantly located in the coastal village of Rampside with sea views and panorama to Morecambe Bay. This highly successful and profitable business is reinforced by the lucrative commercial market with BAE Systems, Kimberley Clark and GSK being almost on the doorstep. The hotel trades with 14 en suite letting bedrooms, a lovely open plan 50 cover restaurant and bar and ample car parking.

The village of Rampside is located just four miles from Barrow-in-Furness town centre - an ideal location to explore the local area and its many attractions including the Award-Winning South Lakes Wild Animal Park and the Lake District National Park which is just a short drive away. The hotel is also popular with its guests who want to enjoy the outdoors, with many keen cyclists, walkers, golfers and sailors who choose to stay. A 10 minute walk along the coast brings you to Rampside Pitch and Putt - a par three golf course - and there is also the beautiful 18 hole Barrow Golf Club with spectacular coastal views.

The present owners acquired The Clarke's Hotel around 16 years ago and during this time they have established a busy coastal hotel popular with its locals and visitors alike. The property itself has been significantly improved during this time with smart modern en suite letting bedrooms and a fully refurbished bar and restaurant, providing a warm and cosy atmosphere for its guests to enjoy. Due to retirement reasons however, the owners have decided to offer this excellent business opportunity to the market.
