Businesses for sale


The Retreat, a highly-regarded and established B&B in the picturesque hilltop town of Shaftesbury, North Dorset, has been brought to the market by specialist property adviser Christie + Co.

Tucked away in a quiet corner, only a short walk from the town centre, the Grade II listed Georgian property offers nine beautifully appointed en-suite letting rooms. Public areas in the property include a spacious residents’ lounge, dining room and externally, there is car parking for approximately six vehicles.

The property also benefits from two self contained and spacious one bedroom apartments. One is occupied by the current owners and the other is let out to generate further income for the business.

Recipient of numerous awards and accolades for its quality and service, The Retreat has, in the past, been awarded ‘Best B&B in North Dorset’ by VisitBritain and a ‘Four Diamond Silver’ award from Enjoy England. For the last three years the B&B has also won the Kellogg’s ‘best breakfast award’.

Tim Widdows of Christie + Co’s Winchester office is handling the sale. He comments: “This is a superb opportunity to acquire a well established business in an excellent location which attracts many repeat visitors. The Retreat will no doubt generate significant interest from potential purchasers.”

Christie + Co is seeking offers of £875,000 for the freehold interest in The Retreat.
