Little Mainstone Guest HouseLooeCornwallPL13 2BUView Map

A stunningly located, luxurious, water side guest house which has been lovingly refurbished and upgraded to a high standard. This successfully owner operated business benefits from a mix of 5 double rooms and junior suites which together with parking for all rooms, garden, garage and views of the water affords our clients an impressive income. Owners have a one-bedroom accommodation with a large lounge/diner with harbour views. There is potential to create further bedroom from the garage or additional letting accommodation. Early viewings are highly recommended.

Situated on West Bank Road in Looe, Little-Maidstone enjoys breath taking views across the harbour & estuary. Looe is one of Cornwall’s most popular holiday destinations and with the bonus of the Looe Music Festival in mid-September enjoys a long high season. The medieval town of Looe you see today was originally two separate towns East Looe and West Looe. East Looe is where you will find the main shopping centre and the harbour. West Looe is more tranquil, with a selection of Shops Restaurants and Guest houses. Easily accessible by road and with regular rail links to the rest of the country.

This business is easily operated by a husband & wife team and because of the location and quality accommodation, this guest house generates equal income to properties twice the size but with the added benefits of low overheads. The town of Looe have all year-round trade. Our clients operate approx. 6 months per year because of lifestyle choice and that the turnover easily reaches the VAT threshold within this time. However, there is much scope to greatly increase the already impressive turnover by staying open for longer. The business benefits from high repeat custom, good website presence but we the agents feel there is much scope to further expand on this. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
