There is great scope with the property to either continue running it as a Bed and Breakfast, using it as a large family home with granny annexe or various other uses.
The vendors have advised us that their business is being run at a deliberately reduced level as they are semi-retired and has great potential to increase turnover and occupancy rate by taking more bookings which are readily available
