The present owners have run the successful and profitable holiday letting business since 1998. The business had a gross turnover of £133,324 for the 2017/18 season from the 5 holiday letting cottages that they rent. Currently they use an agent to advertise the properties and do not carry out any individual internet advertising but use their website for information for guests.
The repeat/recommendation trade for the property is approximately 30% and the property is VAT registered. The business has potential to use the land for glamping or to establish a yurt business. There is potential to use the loose boxes for livery for additional income. Previously there was planning permission to convert the bull pen into additional accommodation.
