This established, highly successful business, has been operated for many years and generates an impressive income, which allows our clients to take much time off and travel during the winter months. The business has undergone a rolling refurbishment programme and benefits from a large dining room, guest lounge, bar, a garden to front with mature shrubbery, palm trees. Enough parking for all guests, large garden, decked area and workshop to the rear. The owners’ luxury two-bedroom accommodation is self-contained and presented in an excellent condition.

LOCATION

Paignton / Goodrington is one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations, with a good all-year round trade. It is only a short distance from Dartmouth, Brixham and equal distance to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter – with its international airport, mainline train station and M5 motorway. Situated in St Andrews Road, the property is located just a short walking distance to the picturesque Marina and Harbour which has a level walk along the esplanade with lovely sea views.

BUSINESS

Sonachan House has been trading successfully for many years, which enjoys a high level of repeat custom and is much liked by visitors & locals alike. It is operated by a husband-and-wife team but we, the agents, feel that there is tremendous scope to expand on the already impressive turnover figures by utilising the internet further together with further focus on advertising. Currently trading for approximately 9 / 10 months per year because of lifestyle choice. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
