A beautifully presented, easily operated, 6 en-suite bedroom guest house and only a short walk to the town centre and seafront. Featuring flexible ground floor one bedroom owners’ accommodation comprises of double bedroom, separate lounge, and private garden. This turn-key business has recently undergone a rolling refurbishment programme to ensure that it is presented to a high decorative order. It includes good parking to the front of the property and a large enclosed courtyard/garden to the rear with a sunroom/workshop building and ample space for tables and chairs. Early viewings are highly recommended.


The Cranmore Guest House is situated in an ideal location in Torquay, as it is able to take advantage of the high passing tourist/commercial traffic by being only minutes’ walk away from the main beach, harbour and shopping region. Also, being conveniently situated close to both the local railway, bus stations and main arterial road which link up main cities like Plymouth and the Cathedral city of Exeter, with its world-renowned University and International airport.


The owners have traded successfully for many years and our clients are very proud to have achieved high levels of repeat business year-on-year. The Cranmore Guest House has the benefit of extensive double-glazing and business rate exemptions together with 6 high quality bedrooms which can easily be serviced by a couple without the need of any staff. Current owners are trading ten months per year because of lifestyle choice, however 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.
