Highly Successful Licensed Hotel in Brixham

The Smugglers Haunt, Church Hill East, Brixham, Devon, TQ5 8HH

A stunning and successful high-end, 14 en-suite bedroom hotel for sale in Brixham. The property has recently undergone a comprehensive refurbishment programme and is now presented to an impressive standard throughout. Also benefiting from a licenced bar area (residents only) together with two guest lounges, dining area which can double up as tea room, professional fitted kitchens, office, owner’s spacious accommodation and parking to side. This unique property is steeped in history and is ideally situated on the level and only minutes’ the town centre and harbour. This spacious business could easily in-cooperate a restaurant but currently operates profitably on B&B basis only. Because of its size and configuration, it would also suit a larger or extended family. Early viewings are highly recommended....


LOCATION

The business is located on Church Hill East which is only a couple of hundred meters level walk to the harbour, town centre, bus terminal and all local amenities. The town of Brixham is beautifully presented which is an old-time fishing harbour together with picturesque buildings together with quality restaurants, cafes, independent retailers which all make this an attractive place to visit. Situated just off the main harbour is a newly created Marina which has proved to be a resounding success together with a regular ferry which goes back and forth to Torquay. No matter what time of year you visit Brixham, there’s always something happening in this busy, pretty little fishing port. The summer months see Fish-stock and the Brixham Regatta attracts thousands of visitors to the town, whilst regular arts and crafts markets held throughout the year. There is also convenient road access out onto the main by-pass which links the main motorways and nearby Cathedral city of Exeter with Paddington main rail line, M5 Motorway and its International airport.

 

BUSINESS

The business is successfully owner operated with part time assistance when required. Trading only on B&B basis and because of the number of bedrooms on offer, the owners are able to generate an impressive income over a short period. In the last few months our clients have introduced a café area (day time only) but which will be fully operational over the summer months. We the agents feel there is tremendous opportunity to expand the already impressive turn-over by opening fully during the winter months, improved marketing strategy and also with continuation of the café or even creation of a bistro should one wish. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal viewing.
