Property Description

Located just above Lynton Town Hall in a central spot enjoying South facing views towards Lynton, Lyn Valley and Countisbury Hill. All amenities are with a short walk including the convenience store, doctor's surgery, primary school, shops and restaurants. Nearby is the multi-award winning and famous Lynton and Lynmouth funicular Cliff Railway opened in 1890 and is the highest and the steepest totally water powered railway in the world! Lynton Town Hall was given to the town by Sir George Newnes, Bart, who was a major benefactor of the town, he also built Ingleside in 1895 as a gentleman’s residence. In addition, he also gave the town the United Reformed Church building (originally a Congregational church) on Lee Road. The area is popular throughout the year with tourists especially walkers exploring the South West Coast Path and many hidden steep sided river valleys. Lynton is approximately 17 miles (27 km) north-east of Barnstaple and 18 miles (29 km) west of Minehead and close to the confluence of the West Lyn and East Lyn rivers.

This detached family home has 11 bedrooms and 9 en-suite bathrooms, but from choice the current owners only let 6 bedrooms for guest accommodation. The versatile room plan provides for a one-bedroom annexe on the ground floor ideal for a relative or potential holiday let. There is a large guest lounge and separate breakfast room to the ground floor. The public rooms are well serviced by a fitted kitchen and interlinked freezer room/pantry. There is oil fired radiator central heating and the rooms have been tastefully decorated throughout. Approached from a sweeping tarmac driveway there is a car park for 8 vehicles to the side and front. The rear gardens are sloping laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees in all just under half an acre.

A long-established guest house with an excellent reputation, now for sale due to retirement after 22 happy years here. The property is available with no ongoing chain. This business has an income of £81,000 with high profit margins but has great potential to grow by opening up more guest rooms. The tariff is from £100 per night with an extra £27 per person for an evening meal. The business opens from Easter to half term week in October and is run by a husband and wife team with no staff. All trade fixtures, fittings and equipment will be included apart from those items of a personal nature. Considered an ideal home and income opportunity as a first-time business.

It should be noted that the owners close for 3 weeks of the high season. There is another £9,000 in potential income to be made during these 3 weeks. This is a personal choice of the current owners therefore the potential to generate a further income is tremendous. The property is in a conservation area.
