Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Metfield is a small attractive village in North Suffolk lying between the busy market towns of Harleston and Halesworth and just above the Waveney valley.

The Duke William closed as a pub in 2007 but the vendors opened it as a tea room and then expanded into bed and breakfast, which is the area they now concentrate on.

The village is small but well located and the Duke William is at the heart of the village. Sitting comfortably in around half an acre of hedge lined lovely gardens with ample parking, there is much opportunity for the new owner to expand the business in many directions - restaurant, tea rooms or expand the lettings side.

Sensibly priced to ensure market appeal, this venture is well worth a look for the discerning purchaser seeking a lovely home and lifestyle change.


THE BUSINESS ITSELF

Currently run only as a bed and breakfast, the turnover is intentionally kept below the VAT threshold as the vendors have chosen lifestyle over maximising the profit. There is much potential either to expand the lettings side, open the restaurant as a tea room or bistro - there are many options, which in our opinion could all earn money and add value. Metfield is an affluent village and there is much demand in the area for overnight accommodation. Well located for the Heritage Coast and the nearby town of Southwold, there are many ramblers, cyclists and general tourists seeking vittels and a bed for the night.

The majority of the bookings come from either bookings.com , referrals from satisfied returning clients. or folk passing through the village.


ACCOMMODATION

ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY
This delightful building is set in approximately half an acre of lovely private gardens in the centre of the village of Metfield. Formerly the village pub, there are large gardens surrounding the property, partially south facing with a large car park which could easily accommodate a building plot if permission were obtained without damaging the integrity of the main building.

The ground floor has a large kitchen which could easily cater commercially, the restaurant/lounge/tea room measures some 31ft x 16 ft with a cloakroom off. There is a breakfast room with fourteen covers facing over the front garden. A large storage area is by the stairs which lead up to three double bedroom and a spacious family bathroom which could be utilised commercially.

The three letting rooms, all en suite, are spread along the ground floor and consist of two doubles with patio doors onto the rear lawn and one family room. There is also a large guest room with a bathroom which could be used by the owner wishing to maximise letting rooms.

The whole is presented in good order and the vendors have spent considerable sums updating the boiler, refurbishing the rooms and maintaining the oil fired central heating.
