A fantastically presented and profitable 15-bedroom en-suite guest house for sale, situated in the very sought after Babbacombe Downs, Torquay. The immediate area benefits from cafes, theatre, restaurants, seafront, pubs and a vibrant local community. The property has undergone a rolling refurbishment programme and because of its high standard, enjoys much repeat custom and subsequent impressive profits. The property has lovely gardens to front and side which could easily provide cream teas in the summer as well as a large dining room, 2 x lounges, games room, bar and conservatory which benefits from stunning sea views. The owner’s accommodation 2/3 bedrooms and there is lapsed planning for a annex to the rear, which could be reinstated.

Torquay has long been one of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations and those who live there enjoy a great quality of life. This all-year-round resort benefits from top quality shows at the Princess Theatre and a huge choice of restaurants, cafes, spa treatment centres, festivals and events, not forgetting the iconic palm trees, busy harbour, international marina and mild climate. The business is on the sought after and beautiful Babbacombe Downs, Torquay, which has the highest cliff top promenade in England and on a clear day has views right across to Portland Bill in Dorset. It’s the perfect place to relax and gaze out to sea.  The location is flat and within easy access of the town centre, seafront and harbour.

 

The business trades well on B&B basis with a high repeat custom and room rates. Because of lifestyle choice, the owners trade 10 months per year, but the already impressive income could easily be improved by opening for longer and with improved marketing. The number of bedrooms and the layout could easily accommodate self-contained letting holiday units and large self-contained block group bookings. However, it is currently trading very well on a B&B basis alone. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
