Guest house in Harrogate town on the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser Christie & Co has brought to the market The Belmont Guest House, situated in the heart of the popular spa town of Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Occupying a Victorian semi-detached property, the guest house features eight well-presented letting bedrooms, seven of which benefit from en suite bathrooms, a breakfast room, living area, and fully-fitted kitchen. The lower ground floor also provides en suite owner’s accommodation.

The site is prominently located just off the main road, with garden frontage at the entrance, and benefits from onsite guest parking to the rear of the property. Enjoying a position in the town centre, The Belmont is within easy reach of Harrogate’s shops, restaurants and amenities, and is within half a mile of bus and rails links. The highly accessible guest house is well placed to cater for the high levels of tourists and leisure visitors to Harrogate and the surrounding areas, drawn to local attractions such as the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

After 10 years of ownership, the current owners, Mike and Jo Ganley, are selling the business in order to pursue retirement and move abroad. They comment, “We have thoroughly enjoyed living and working in North Yorkshire all under one roof. This is a perfect set up for a family style business or a great investment for development in the centre of town.”

Sam Ashton, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “This property provides an excellent opportunity for a purchaser to take over a profitable business, or to apply for planning consent for alternative use, such as residential conversion. After some serious investment and changes to the town in retail, licensed and leisure, Harrogate will remain as an affluent and touristic area of North Yorkshire, having repeatedly received most votes for the happiest place to live in the UK”. 

The freehold of The Belmont Guest House is on the market at an asking price of £675,000.
