Many of us dream about quitting the rat-race and setting ourselves up with a nice café, B&B or guesthouse business in a beautiful area. Well they don’t get much quainter than this – a luxury B&B, tearoom and restaurant in Ludlow.
When buying a business, it’s important to consider if the business you are buying is a success (is it making a profit? does it have a unique selling point?). The Elizabethan De Grey’s Townhouse is an award winning business that has had a loyal customer base for the past 100 years.
The 200-cover tearoom has won the Tea Guild’s Award of Excellence for the past six years and the nine-room bed and breakfast facilities were opened in 2006 after the owners bought the adjoining premises.
The B&B for sale has a five-star rating from the AA and is rated as a ‘red hotel’ by the Michelin guide.
In addition to all this there is also a restaurant for sale as part of the package, which is situated on the first floor. There is room for development in this department, particularly for evening dining.
Buying a small hotel or B&B is a great way to earn a living as it usually offers the chance to work from home much of the time. It can also offer rewarding experiences in creating a wonderful setting for people’s holidays and business trips.
