Property description

9 cottage Holiday Complex with a Character 5 bedroom home in Idyllic West Wales Location

A chance to own a character property in an idyllic Ceredigion location sold with an existing and very scalable self-catering 9 cottage holiday accommodation business that is ready to go for a new owner looking to join the UK "staycation market".

Situated in a beautiful valley location with grounds of around 8 acres the business could also develop an equestrian element with some beautiful grounds and an adjoining stream plus an additional indoor Swimming Pool Centre and Games Room. Many opportunities for a purchaser with ambition and imagination.

THE BUSINESS


Gaer Cottages has been in the same ownership since 2004 and promote the cottages via various websites including the Wyndham Group ( and Waterside Breaks coupled with pet-friendly websites such as Pets in cottages and their own website.

The sale is due to retirement and there is potential to increase the turnover by extending the season and increasing the marketing of the self-catering business by further internet advertising.
