HEIDI’S Grasmere Lodge in Cumbria, winner of the 2017 Experts’ Choice Award, has come to the market through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co with an asking price of £1.365m for the freehold.
The 200-year-old bed and breakfast in Grasmere holds a prominent position in a prime trading location in Red Lion Square.
The six-bedroom hotel has been restored over recent years using traditional materials and local craftsmen. Today, the historic building remains full of character with its exposed stone and slate walls and low beams.
A number of rooms also offer floor to ceiling sash windows, outdoor patios and roof terraces which have remarkable views across the Cumbrian Mountains and surrounds.
There is also a cafe and deli occupying the ground floor with the accommodation situated across the first and second floors.
TripExpert, based in New York City, works out its awards based on the views of writers working for over 70 leading travel publications, including Lonely Planet, Frommer’s and The Telegraph. Fewer than 2% of hotels around the world receive the award.
Tom O’Malley, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a thriving business in a prominent trading position in Grasmere. It benefits from the dual revenue streams from both the cafe and the letting rooms and would suit a first-time or experienced operator.”
