Full description

A very well appointed 3 large Guest Bedroom, B&B situated near Tavistock, in the foothills of Dartmoor National Park. Within gardens and grounds of c. 0.8 acres this well appointed guesthouse offers opportunity to expand. With comfortable and private owners accommodation. A high quality offering, viewing recommended.

Location - Harvest home is located in the Parish of Gulworthy, which has a Church, primary school and is approximately 3 miles from Tavistock, in the foothills of Dartmoor National Park. Tavistock requires little introduction as one of the Devon's foremost towns, with its fine period properties, national and niche retailers, state and private schooling.

Our clients property is ideally suited for those wishing to explore Tavistock, Dartmoor and across the border into East Cornwall.

The Property / Business - Harvest Home previously traded as a free house, has been in our clients tenure for the past 10 years and in recent years has been converted to provide principally bed-and-breakfast accommodation, with an optional evening meal for residents only.

The sizeable premises comprise three large and extremely well appointed guest letting rooms, public dining area, well-equipped commercial kitchen areas and our clients private one-bedroom accommodation. It is considered the property could be reconfigured/extended to provide further letting accommodation, either within the confines of the existing building or in the extensive grounds.

The business trades all year, with the exception of December through to February and we are advised the turnover is in the region of circa £50,000, for the year end September 2017, with approximately £40,000 being attributable to the bed-and-breakfast, with a further £10,000 from evening meals.

The business has a gross profit level of 76% and adjusted net profit of £28,000, after deducting normal overheads. Further accounting information will be made available subsequent to a viewing appointment in the normal manner. Information regarding our clients business can be seen at
