Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful guesthouse located in the spectacular Snowdonia National Park. Originally built for the local vicar in 1875 this is a stunning example of Victorian architecture and is constructed exclusively in local slate.
In the mid 1970’s it was purchased from the church and converted into a pub and subsequently a pub with rooms. More latterly it has traded as a licensed guest house and in 2014 underwent a substantial refurbishment. This has resulted in four very large double rooms all with stunning bathrooms and elegant guests lounge and dining room. The attention to detail afforded to the design and decoration has been second to none and has created a quite contemporary feel whilst being sympathetic to the building’s history and origins. All bedrooms and guest areas have very high quality furniture and fixtures and fittings all of which would be included in the purchase price meaning that any new purchaser would not require additional funds for some time.
The business is currently owner operated and has no additional staff and has an annual turnover of between £55000 and £65000. Bookings are taken via the business website, the traditional booking sites and Visit Wales. Predominately it is booked on a bed and breakfast basis and commands a rate of £130 per night for a kingsize double room. One of the rooms has a high quality sofa bed that can be used as a family room and one room can be used as a super king size or twin room.
There is also further potential to increase trade as in the past there has been planning permission for twelve log cabins in the wooded area. We understand that due to the local council encouraging more accommodation for the area reinstatement of this planning would be forthcoming. The property also boasts exceptional owner accommodation which in turn has been completely refurbished in 2016 and allows the owners to live comfortably on site whilst still maintaining separation from their guests.
