Charming B&B comes to the market in Bridgnorth town centre

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market The Croft, a charming family-run, 4 star B&B in the affluent and popular market town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire.

The 17th century, Grade II listed building dates back in parts to the Tudor era, retaining many of its period features, and boasts restored beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and warm, inviting décor. Finished to a high standard throughout, the three storey property comprises of a reception area, spacious dining room for up to 26 covers split over two sections, and 12 letting rooms across the ground, first and second floors. Additionally, there is a two storey, three bedroom owner’s accommodation to the rear of the hotel, with a private garden.

Located in High Town, the well-positioned B&B is close to the town’s main high street, benefiting from high levels of footfall and passing trade from locals and tourists visiting the area, attracted to its wide selection of restaurants, bars, and shops.

The current owners, Mr & Mrs Robinson decided to move on to pursue retirement after nearly a decade of successful trading at The Croft. They comment, “This was our first venture into the B&B business and we have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We have welcomed lots of lovely people and made friends with many of our regular customers. We will miss seeing them and the friends we have made in the friendly town of Bridgnorth but feel it is now time for us to retire.”

Joshua Sullivan – Business Agent at Christie & Co comments, “This would be an ideal opportunity for someone looking for a lifestyle business with a very consistent customer base and income. The popular B&B serves the local and wider community and, with an enviable reputation, has become an important part of the fabric of the town. Bridgnorth is a popular tourist destination but The Croft also benefits from regular business clients and enjoys high levels of occupancy throughout the year.

The Croft Hotel is on the market, freehold, with an asking price of £785,000.
