A fantastically located 6 bed Guest House in Torquay and only minutes’ walk to town centre, harbour and sea front. This successfully owner operated property comes with a spacious/flexible 2-bedroom owners’ accommodation, parking, rear and front garden and being presented in good decorative order throughout. Early viewings are highly recommended....
Lawnswood Guest House is ideally located close to ‘Belgravia’ one of Torquay’s most busy commercial tourist districts. Benefiting from this wonderfully central and yet quiet location within only minutes’ walk to both Town Centre and ever beautiful Sea Front of Torquay. The local train and bus station are nearby together with easy access to all main arterial road links linking major cities like Plymouth and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its international airport and M5 motorway connecting all parts of the UK.
The owners have traded successfully for many years and our clients are very proud to have achieved high levels of repeat business year-on-year. The Lawnswood Guest House has the benefit being presented in an excellent decorative order and full business rate exemptions. The 6 bedrooms which can easily be serviced by a couple without the need of any staff and should owners not require two bedrooms, an additional letting room could easily be made available. Current owners are trading ten months per year because of lifestyle choice, however we, the agents, feel that the turnover could be improved by opening for longer during the low season, improved advertising and better use of social media. Full accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
