A beautiful Georgian converted millhouse, built around 1780, now a highly successful 5 en-suite bedroomed guest house. This business trades with an income of somewhere twice its size due to the high standard of accommodation on offer, demand and without the need for staff. Located in Dulverton, Somerset, one of the South West’s most picturesque ‘chocolate box’ towns and being in the very heart of this lovely community. Operating only 7/8 months per year and benefitting from being able to operate a tearoom, with outdoor & indoor seating. Due to owners’ lifestyle choice, this is not currently being utilised. The owners’ ground floor one bedroom accommodation is sumptuous, it has ample private parking & a large garden

The Town Mills guesthouse is situated in the very heart of the perennially busy town of Dulverton which is known as the ‘Jewel’ in the crown of Somerset and lies within Exmoor National Park. The Town is a popular tourist destination and benefits from a ‘chocolate box’ quaint feel which makes it highly desirable. The town offers a friendly thriving local community, with its own community shop, post office, town hall, 3  lovely pubs and 4 restaurants offering a good range of meals. With convenient bus and road links connecting all parts of the West country and only 25 minutes to the coast.

The business is successfully owner operated and is easily operated, generating an income similar to a guest house twice its size due to the high standard of accommodation on offer, demand and without the need for staff. We, the agents, feel that with the tearoom being reintroduced, a substantial additional income could be generated and by trading more months of the year, the already impressive income could be increased. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
