Lake District B&B brought to the market through Christie & Co
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market Beaumont House, a five star bed & breakfast in the Lake District town of Windermere, a popular tourist destination located close to England’s largest natural lake.
Occupying a detached, three storey Victorian property, the substantial bed & breakfast offers 11 en suite letting bedrooms, alongside a resident’s lounge and 22 cover dining room, which is used for serving breakfast. The property is set within attractive lawned gardens with private parking for 12 vehicles, a useful addition in a bustling holiday destination where a high proportion of visitors arrive by car.
Additionally, there is owner’s accommodation with separate access on the lower ground floor, situated alongside the laundry, as well as separate en suite staff accommodation to the ground floor.
Due to its prime location in the Lake District, the bed & breakfast is perfectly placed to cater to visitors drawn to the area for its renowned natural beauty, outdoor pursuits and historical prevalence.
Current owner, Denise Dixon has run Beaumont House for the last 18 years and is now looking to sell in order to pursue retirement. During her time at the property, it has been tastefully refurbished whilst retaining many original period features and cultivated a strong reputation, having been awarded a ‘Recognition of Excellence’ in 2017 from HotelsCombined, as well as being ‘Recommended’ on TripAdvisor.
Keith Stringer, Director at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “Beaumont House is in an enviable position just a few minutes from the centre of Windermere. This impressive property presents an ideal opportunity for purchasers who like the idea of a turnkey lifestyle business in the heart of one of the country’s most impressive national parks. Though currently profitable, the business trades with limited opening throughout the year, presenting a new operator with plenty of scope to grow the business and drive revenue and profitability.”
Beaumont House is for sale on a freehold basis off an asking price of £1,250,000.
