Description
Bruce and Co. are privileged to introduce to the market The Old Station House, a beautifully presented Bed and Breakfast and self-catering carriage situated adjacent to the village of Bridge of Dee in the south west of Scotland. The Bed & Breakfast provides guests with accommodation in 2 letting rooms on a bed and breakfast basis in a commanding property which used to be a train station along with a converted train carriage which provides unique self-catering accommodation making the business very distinctive. The property has been under the very caring ownership of our clients since 1998 during which time they have carefully carried out substantial renovations and refurbishments throughout the entire property to create an impressive family home for 10 years. In 2010 our clients began trading as B&B and self-catering carriage.

The business is trading well and our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire. The Old Station House enjoys a good turnover and not only provides the owners with an excellent source of income but also a wonderful home. The property is truly stunning with exceptionally unique features and can only be appreciated in full by viewing. The business enjoys high occupancy levels and trades all year round. Although the business provides a good source of income it still has potential to increase turnover as the owners currently run the business to a pace suitable to them.



Situation
Bridge of Dee is situated 3 miles west of the market town of Castle Douglas which is known as Scotland’s Food Town and has many local family-run shops and high quality businesses providing a varied selection of services. There are both primary and secondary schools in the town along with supermarkets, health services, golf course, veterinary services and a thriving livestock market. Castle Douglas is in the heart of Dumfries and Galloway. A short distance away from the stunning Solway Coast with many beautiful walks and drives, making it popular with locals and visitors.

Building Internal
Constructed in the late 1800’s, this original train station was running up until 1949. Purchased by our clients in 1998 the building became the family home while our clients raised their children and the B&B business was established in 2010.
