Full description

Tenure: Freehold

17 Burgate is a lovely townhouse which has been developed into a high quality B & B with superb accommodation for owners. Every care has been taken to provide guests with a high quality environment and the same skill and effort has been put into creating a home for owners to be proud of.

Situated just off the busy Market Place, 17 Burgate has a first class trading location. Guests have a walled garden to enjoy and a private car park to make life easy, whilst only a short stroll away are the eateries of this bustling tourist and market town. Pickering is home to the famous North York Moors Steam Railway and on the doorstep is the marvellous walking and touring country of the National Park.. Goathland, Whitby, Scarborough, Malton, Castle Howard, Dalby Forest and Flamingo Land are all an easy drive away and 17 Burgate is a wonderful base for guests and owners alike.

After ten tremendously enjoyable years owning and operating this easily run, high quality bed and breakfast business, the owners are looking to retire and hence the decision to sell giving purchasers an opportunity to acquire one of the best B & B's in the region with everything in place for an enjoyable lifestyle.


An attractive period property, 17 Burgate has a tremendously appealing front façade with immediate access to and from town via Burgate, whilst to the rear the access from the private car park is via a delightful walled garden. The accommodation is arranged on ground, first and second floors and includes a superb home for owners which is entirely private.


A front entrance lobby leads into the entrance hall with open staircase curving round to the first floor landing lit by a lovely feature window with part coloured glazing. To the right of the hall is the breakfast room, a beautifully proportioned room with high ceiling and usually laid for 10. Double doors lead through to the lounge, a tremendously cosy and characterful room with stone flagged floor, stone surround fireplace with wood burning stove and bar hatch with servery and wash-up area behind. A small rear hall off the lounge gives access to a guest wc whilst the main rear access to 17 Burgate is from the garden via a separate stone flagged hall.


Five letting bedrooms to sleep 10 (all double or twin). All bedrooms are beautifully furnished and decorated and have en suite bath or shower room/wc, oak furniture, designer fabrics, flat screen television with Freeview, DVD/CD player, Ipod docking station, broadband internet access, hairdryer, trouser press, hospitality tray and central heating radiator.


17 Burgate provides a high quality home for owners. Spacious living kitchen, dining room and lounge on the ground floor. Private stairs leading to the second floor which is entirely given over to owners' accommodation comprising master bedroom, large double bedroom, small double bedroom, store room and bathroom/wc with shower over the bath.


Very well equipped and appointed living kitchen (as mentioned above) with Aga. Pantry, store and laundry room.


Private rear car park for 7 cars, leading to the delightful walled garden with flagged terrace, lawn, mature shrubbery and garden store.
