LOCATION

Minehead is a coastal town and civil parish in Somerset, England. It lies on the south bank of the Bristol Channel, 21 miles (34 km) north-west of the county town of Taunton, 12 miles (19 km) from the border with the county of Devon and in proximity of the Exmoor National Park. It forms a perfect base from which to engage in a variety of rural activities including walking, riding and fishing. The town is serviced well by an array of arterial roads linking up with the M5 and all parts of the UK.  Marston Lodge is situated in the North Hill/Higher Town area of Minehead and has views over the town and Exmoor.

BUSINESS

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

OWNERS’ ACCOMMODATION

The owner’s accommodation is flexible and situated on the 1st floor ½ landing and currently uses two en-suite rooms and most of the reception rooms on the ground floor. The owners accommodation is a blank canvas as the current owners have not modernised the accommodation at all as they have focus on the letting rooms.  There is approved planning permission for french doors to be put in to the rear garden. The Should the owners not require the additional space, this could easily be re-instated as letting accommodation.

ROOM 1

A double room with en-suite and a large window to the front and rear (planning permission has been granted for rear windows to be replaced with French doors)

ROOM 2

A double room with en-suite and a large window to the rear overlooking the gardens.

OUTSIDE

To the front is plenty of private parking, a drive up to the front and unrestricted off-road parking.  To one side is a garage and workshop to the rear of this. To the front and side are south facing terraced areas for the guests and to the rear are lovely gardens, orchard and a summerhouse.

PLANNING

The property benefits from both commercial and full residential usage to choose between and previously the property was granted planning for 6 self-contained apartments, but this has now lapsed. We the agents feel this would be a mere formality to reinstate.
