Countryman Hotel, Victoria Road, Camelford


Property Description

Key features


Full description

The Countryman Hotel enjoys a prominent trading location on the Eastern side of the town of Camelford, is set back from the road and enjoys high prominence and visibility for passing trade.

Location: - The Countryman Hotel enjoys a prominent trading location on the Eastern side of the town of Camelford, is set back from the road and enjoys high prominence and visibility for passing trade. Camelford is an attractive and historic town situated on the River Camel and just a few miles from Bodmin Moor, is nearby to several attractive harbours, such as Boscastle, Port Isaac and the North Cornish coastal beaches of Polzeath and Rock, making this an extremely desirable area in which to holiday.

The town itself is serviced with a number of small national and niche retailers, has primary and secondary schooling and is generally considered a very pleasant town in which to live and work.

The Property/Business: - We understand The Countryman Hotel has traded as a business since it was built around the turn of the century, has been in our clients tenure since 1992 who are now selling due to other commitments in the area, unrelated to this industry. The business trades all year, with the exception of several weeks a year for holidaying, is run by our clients with some casual assistance. The business currently trades on a Bed & Breakfast basis only and the turnover has been purposefully restricted to meet our clients own needs, therefore, given the prominent trading location, size of the public rooms and the bedrooms it is considered that the turnover and indeed the profitability could be enhanced substantially, if so required.

The Countryman Hotel is a substantial three storey building of indigenous stone with attractive red brick edging around the windows, there are many internal character features indicative of the period, adding much charm throughout the building.

The trading profit and loss account for the year end July 2015 show sales of £66,087, plus own consumption of £4,200, thus giving a total income of £70,287 producing a gross profit of 93%, with a net profit of c. £40,000 per annum. Full accounting information will be made available to viewers subsequent to a viewing appointment.
