Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A detached period property in a truly idyllic and secluded Dartmoor location with views over Laughter Tor and Ryders Hill, held on a renewable Duchy lease (approx. 26 years remaining). This lovely property offers the new owner a great lifestyle with great income potential.

The Cherrybrook is a very popular small country house B & B set in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Dartmoor National Park. Surrounded by approx 3 acres of gardens and grounds it has separate owner's accommodation and a range of outbuildings. The current owners, who are nearing retirement, have chosen to trade just under the current VAT threshold which stands at £83,000 and this year have closed for 1 week every 2 months to keep the income at this level. The Cherrybrook has the highest rating of 5 on Tripadvisor and it is our opinion that this income could be greatly increased as it has traded at higher figures previously.

Without doubt the feature of this property is its stunning location with its uninterrupted and far reaching views over Dartmoor. The property is approached via a driveway that sweeps to the front of the house where there is parking for a number of vehicles.

The property has been modernised over the years by the current owners and offers well-presented accommodation over two floors. The ground floor area houses a large dual aspect dining room, bar and snug area with a stunning slate floor from Dartmoor Prison. Approached via the large office/owners reception there is a serving kitchen which leads onto the cooking kitchen with a glazed door to the gardens. Our clients are leaving the large cooker, fridges and freezers.

The owners’ accommodation is to the right of the front door and comprises a large living room, double bedroom and shower room. Upstairs there are 6 lovely double B & B bedrooms all with en-suites and a single, all affording lovely views over the moorland. Furthermore there is a one bedroom staff/granny flat which can also have the flexibility of being part of the owners’ accommodation. This flat is accessed via the laundry room on the ground floor where there is a possibility of putting in an external door.

Outside
The grounds comprise approximately three acres, made up of formal gardens, parking and paddock with a stunning backdrop. The outbuildings include a 3 horse stable block (needing attention) and a very large garage. There is also an attached large shed which accommodates the water filtration system and additional fridges and freezers. The property enjoys direct access onto the moor to the rear.

Location
Two Bridges is within a mile of The Cherrybrook and is a small hamlet where the West Dart and Cowsick rivers meet. The hamlet gains its name from the previous medieval bridges, alongside its famous hotel which is renowned throughout the area.
