Carrington Guest House10 Beach RoadPaigntonDevonTQ4 6AYView Map

A turnkey easily operated 7-bedroom guest house with spacious owners’ accommodation, all within sight of the seafront. The property is presented to a good overall decorative standard, enjoys a fine reputation from visitors and benefits from excellent repeat custom. With an enclosed courtyard garden to the rear and a south-facing area to the front with space for tables and chairs, early viewings are highly recommended.

LOCATION
Carrington Guest House is situated just off the main street in Paignton, Devon. It is ideally located for shopping, with the main beach and harbour just a few minutes’ walk away, making this guest house very popular. Paignton is part of Torbay, one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations. The local train and bus stations are nearby, with easy access to all main arterial road links connecting major cities like Plymouth and the cathedral city of Exeter, along with its international airport and the M5 motorway, linking all parts of the UK.

BUSINESS
The owners have traded successfully for many years and our clients are very proud to have achieved high repeat business year on year. The Carrington benefits from being fully double-glazed with full gas central heating and free broadband service throughout. Trading mainly during the tourist season and limited over the winter months, we, the agents, feel that the turnover could be improved by opening for longer during the low season, improved advertising, and better use of social media. Full accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
