Oozing with Character, this MOST ATTRACTIVE PERIOD PROPERTY offers not only comfortable and spacious living accommodation but also has the attraction of an EXCELLENT INCOME through the profitable, self contained B&B accommodation. AND THERE'S MORE....

Description

Attractive, spacious, characterful and versatile are just some of the many adjectives that can be used to describe this most appealing property yet it still offers further potential. Having been successfully run for many years as a profitable high quality B&B this unique period farmhouse provides discerning purchasers the opportunity to acquire a nicely proportioned family home together with an oven ready business opportunity.

Having been fully restored and the former outbuildings converted to luxurious self-contained letting units, Village Farm is one of those properties that has to be viewed to be fully comprehended. The nicely presented living accommodation offers three bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and four reception rooms together with a large attic space that provides further potential for an additional bedroom. The former cow byres have been tastefully converted to form three high quality letting bedrooms each with its own en-suite bathroom. Another building has been transformed to create a breakfast/dining room with commercial kitchen and there is still planning consent for a fourth unit on the southern side of the courtyard. Finally, there is a separate two storey barn that can convert to a fifth letting unit.

The letting rooms are superbly appointed and have received numerous awards in recent years (detailed later). The current and previous owners have run a profitable and popular B&B business with many returning customers throughout the year. Other business interests have meant that the current owners are not fulfilling the maximum potential of the business which means there is a significant upside available to a dedicated buyer.
