Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this brilliant bed and breakfast and plant nursery which has operated since approximately 1996 and trades predominantly on a seasonal basis owing our clients personal circumstances. The only reason this ideal business is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to take a well deserved retirement.
Since the business was established our client has continually developed and improved the business introducing new lines and income streams which have enhanced the business massively.
Our client informs us that they currently generate a respectable annual turnover which is derived from offering high quality letting accommodation and a delicious breakfast and evening menu. Nursery sales are generated predominantly from the sale of plants grown on site and there is very little sold in the way of gardening products, garden ornaments etc. and which is something that could be developed significantly. There is enough space to incorporate some traditional garden centre services.
Successfully trading for over 6 years, the B&B has a 3 star rating, and already has a number of repeat customers.

The building is well appointed and has Calor gas central heating.
Each bedroom has tea and coffee making facilities, a television, a radio, a DVD player, a CD player and secure car parking is provided. Ironing facilities, a public telephone and packed lunches are available on request.
There is a well appointed detached property that consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a lounge and the building has electric central heating. It offers outstanding scope for further development as the present business is generated from only 7 months of the year by a husband and wife team.
Our client has built up a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade alongside good word of mouth recommendations.
The business has been run at a pace to suit our client’s lifestyle meaning that there is scope for a future purchaser to further develop the business. Planning permission has been granted for removal of the conservatory to extend the property and to add an additional 4 rooms.
Our client has invested time and money into the business and premises to the point where it is in full walk in condition.
