Heysham guesthouse brought to the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market The Port House, a boutique style guesthouse close to the Lancashire coastal village of Heysham.

Set within a fenced boundary and mature gardens, The Port House is an attractive slate on red stone property, which has been extended and converted. The property comprises eight unique en suite letting bedrooms, a breakfast/dining room with over 20 covers and a fully equipped trade kitchen.

An adjoining semi-detached property features two self-contained letting apartments, which generate additional income for the business, and a two bedroom apartment on the ground floor, which currently serves as the owner’s accommodation. Externally, there is car parking for around 16 vehicles.

The Port House is adjacent to Heysham Port, which provides ferry and freight services to Ireland and the Isle of Man, and close to Heysham Golf Course, local power stations and Half Moon Bay.

The business benefits from year-round tourism and commercial trade. Increased tourist patronage is generated from many seasonal events, such as the University of Lancaster enrolments and the International Isle of Man TT races. Increased commercial activity is generated on a regular basis, for example by power station outages and offshore contracts.

Current owner, Jack Billington is looking to pursue retirement and comments, “This business has been operating a high quality accommodation service with excellent reviews for over 10 years, supported by a solid base of regular repeat business. There is potential for a significant increase in trade through further development of food and drink sales.”

Keith Stringer, Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “The excellent quality accommodation offers a true turnkey opportunity that can only be properly appreciated upon a formal viewing.”

The Port House has been brought to the market through Christie & Co on a freehold basis at an asking price of £899,000.
