Teignmouth, Devon

The Minadab Cottage B&B 60 Teignmouth RoadTeignmouthDevonTQ14 8UTView Map

A beautiful, detached guest house for sale with sumptuous owners’ accommodation, gardens, secure large car park and benefitting from wonderful sea views. This profitable business or home with income property is presented to a high spec and is in excellent decorative order throughout. The letting accommodation is 5-star guest house accommodation with only three luxurious junior suites generating over £50,000 gross income, comparable to a business twice its size. There is an additional potential letting room which is not currently used due to a lifestyle choice, we the agents envisage income could easily be increased to over £60,000 should this be utilised.


The Minadab Guest House is located a short distance from Teignmouth and    Dawlish, Devon in an elevated position overlooking the sea. This lovely property is steeped in history which dates back to the late 1700s. Teignmouth nearby is aptly described as the Jewel of Devon, a characterful seaside town and one of the few that still has its traditional Victorian pier. The pedestrianised, level town centre has an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and patisseries. The train station is only a mile away and there is a bus stop just outside the cottage. Also, all main arterial roads are nearby linking the Cathedral city of Exeter which is only 15/20 min away with the M5 motorway and international airport.


The business is successfully owner operated by a husband-and-wife team but could easily be run by one person. The occupancy percentage is very high because of this unique looking cottage, location, beautiful bedrooms, colourful gardens and fantastic reviews. Trading with only three letting rooms with an income of £50,000. There is an additional bedroom on the 1st floor not currently being used, an additional 10/15,000 per annum could be added to the turnover if this were simply reinstated as a letting room. The owners do not operate all year round which allows them an enviable lifestyle and because of the amount of rooms, also cuts down on works, expenses and thus generates an impressive net profit. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
