Guest House in Sought After Location
A wonderfully located guest house in sought-after Dartmouth by the water in Devon. This highly profitable 4 letting bedroom business operates successfully by a husband and wife team but could easily be managed by one person if needed. The property is in excellent order and has 4 parking spaces which is rare in Dartmouth, together with owner’s flexible one bedroom accommodation. All this only minutes’ walk to town-centre, harbour and all local amenities. Only being placed on the open market after many years due to retirement. Early viewings are highly recommended.
The location of Anchor House is excellent, being in a quiet area of Dartmouth but only minutes’ walk to the town-centre, harbour, restaurants/bars and all other amenities. Ideally located upon arriving in Dartmouth, which lies within the sought after area known as South Hams. There are good public transport links to the immediate towns of Torquay, Paignton, Plymouth and the Cathedral City of Exeter with its International airport.
The business has been operating successfully for many years by a husband and wife team, letting four rooms, three of which are en-suite. The price per night for a double room is approximately £95 and rarely falls below this rate. Of late, because of retirement, the current owners have scaled back on the number of rooms in use, but we the agents, feel there is tremendous scope to expand on the already impressive income with a very simple improvement to marketing by incorporating some social media and by providing the only non en-suite room with its own bathroom. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
