DESCRIPTION Guide Price £795,000 - £825,000

The Jolly Farmers is a superb opportunity to run a lifestyle B&B business in this vibrant market town of Kirkby Stephen, in the Eden Valley. The Yorkshire Dales, Lake District National Parks, North Pennines AONB are minutes away.

Kirkby Stephen is just ten miles from J38 of the M6, and the trans-pennine A66 is 5 miles away It is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Appleby, the Lake District & the Dales. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway is 1 mile away and the Coast to Coast and Lady Annes Highway footpaths run through the town. The walks provide a steady stream of guests, many staying for 2 nights as they break the journey half way, with a rest day, and return later for a longer stay.

Kirkby Stephen has highly regarded primary and grammar schools, as well as a good range of shops, restaurants, pubs, church, chapel and doctor's surgery. There is a weekly outdoor market and an thriving agricultural auction mart. There are also excellent sports facilities in town with cricket, football and Upper Eden rugby club.

The house is a former coaching inn, with many original features as well as the high ceilings and generous apportioned rooms one expects in a Victorian house. It has double glazing, gas central heating and is beautifully decorated throughout.

The B&B has been run by the current owner Carol Pepper successfully for the past 25 years. Carol runs the business with family members and is looking to retire and spend more time with grandchildren. Over the past three years the turnover averaged £70,000 - £80,000, under the VAT threshold. This is based on only opening for 6 months from Easter to October. Turnover could easily be increased by extending opening periods, offering evening meals, afternoon teas and further advertising or outside catering.

On the ground floor is a welcoming entrance hall with turned staircase. The large guest lounge and bar area lead through to a beautiful dining room. There is a cosy owners lounge, commercial kitchen, rear hall, cloakroom and purpose built drying room. The first floor has five lovely en-suite lettings rooms, and stairs to a large store/bedroom.
