A beautiful, highly successful 6 en-suite bedroom village guest house, only a minute’s walk from the harbour and beach. Owner operated together with substantial 3-bedroom owners’ accommodation with its own magnificent large private garden with workshop, terrace and sea views. The whole property has undergone a rolling refurbishment programme and is now presented to a high standard throughout. The letting accommodation is highly ranked on trip advisor (5*) and enjoys high repeat custom, high rooms rates and subsequent impressive profits. Early viewings are highly recommended. Would make a wonderful family residence for anyone relocating to the southwest (subject to planning)

LOCATION

Colebrooke guesthouse is in the chocolate box village of Beer in East Devon. It’s situated only a minute’s walk from the picturesque harbour/beach. There is excellent primary, secondary and junior schools nearby and Beer itself has an active local community. Minutes’ drive away is Seaton with its many shops, supermarkets and stores and nearby is both Honiton and the famous town of Lyme Regis. All the main road links are nearby and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its International airport, main rail line to Paddington, London and M5 motorway is within a short driving distance.

BUSINESS

Colebrook House is for sale due to retirement and has been under the same ownership since 2005 and has built up high levels of repeat and recommendation trade. The current owners use Booking.com, TripAdvisor and their own website to promote their business and are not VAT registered at present. Our clients deliberately restrict trade due to lifestyle choice but current income could easily be surpassed. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
