Sunnyside Guest House
Sunnyside Guest House, 25 Southey Street, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 4EF
Sunnyside is situated in a quiet residential area just a few minutes walk from Keswick’s lively town centre which offers a wide selection of cafes, restaurants, shops and pubs etc. Also within easy reach on foot are many local visitor attractions such as the town’s beautiful parks, Derwentwater lake shore/ boat landings, and the Theatre by the Lake. Keswick serves as the principal tourist centre of the northern half of the Lake District National Park, and must be one of the most visited towns in the UK with year around festivals and events encouraging its ever growing popularity.
Sunnyside is an excellent business attracting much return business, and highly rated on Trip Advisor. The very well presented and maintained accommodation is generously proportioned and retains the character of this period stone property. The flexible guest accommodation comprises seven bedrooms, currently arranged as three doubles, one twin, two singles and a triple, and all with en-suite facilities. A number of rooms have pleasant outlooks over the town with sight of nearby Fells. Unusually these days, Sunnyside still provides a Guest Lounge, a lovely large room on the first floor. On the ground floor is a welcoming reception area/ hall, and the guest breakfast room easily providing space for fourteen persons. Also on the ground floor is a very well equipped “commercial” style kitchen, a separate utility room, and a private hallway leading to the ownerﾒs accommodation comprising two double bedrooms, a bathroom, spacious lounge, and an office with useful link door direct to the guest reception area. Outside to the front/ side is a garden/parking area with room for up to eight cars, plus a large timber workshop/ shed.
The present owners have successfully run Sunnyside since 2006 and now wish to retire. The business turnover has been maintained at a level just below the VAT threshold, affording the owners the opportunity to close for 4-6weeks each year, but also presenting a new owner with the potential to substantially increase turnover if required. We consider Sunnyside offers an excellent business opportunity and we would encourage viewings to appreciate its full potential.
Attractive and well-appointed seven en-suite bedroomed Guest House plus spacious two bed owner’s accommodation, and off road parking. Ideal trading location close to town centre. Outstanding business opportunity.
