The Property
A substantial family home and highly profitable complex of 5 holiday cottages (www.hillfarmcottages.co.uk) with an extensive range of guest facilities including an indoor heated pool, games room and outdoor play area. The property is set in about 6 acres in a quiet location yet less than a mile from the market town of Great Torrington, the North Devon Coast and beaches are a 20min drive away.
The main residence is a former farmhouse which has been extensively renovated by the current owners with new kitchen and bathroom. It retains a great deal of character with inglenook fireplaces, exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings. The rooms are well proportioned with a spacious sitting room, large dining/family room which is open plan to the kitchen, utility room, 4 double bedrooms, 2 of which have en suite facilities and a stylish bathroom.
The holiday cottages are currently run as a lifestyle business and the owners deliberately keep turnover just beneath the VAT limit (£85k). Occupancy rate is less than 50% so the business has plenty of room for growth if desired or new owners can choose to enjoy plenty of free time in this beautiful part of the country.
The leisure complex offers a great range of facilities with a sizeable heated pool including changing rooms and sauna. There is a games room with pool table and table tennis, ideal for rainy days.
The complex benefits from a large animal barn with stabling, electric and water, and a very large adjoining garage/workshop/storage area.
Great Torrington has a wealth of history and a wide range of facilities with a pannier market, good independent shops and supermarket. It is set on the Tarka Trail, popular with cyclists and walkers. The rugged North Devon coast with its pretty villages, sweeping sandy beaches and many water sports opportunities is just a short drive , as is Exmoor with its abundance of wildlife, stunning scenery and status as a dark sky reserve making the area popular with visitors from all areas.
