LOCATION 

Poplars is in a prime tourist trading location which faces the main western approach road into the popular coastal village of Coombe Martin. The South West Coastal Footpath attracts many hikers to the area and the village is often referred to as the ‘Gateway’ to Exmoor National Park. The Poplars Hotel is within a minutes’ walk to Newbery Beach giving it stunning sea and countryside views. This attractive beach has an enchanting sheltered cove with many rock pools ideal for families. Poplars has a vibrant active community which will keep you active all year round.  

 

BUSINESS 

Whilst the guest house has been operating successfully for many years, as of late, it trades on a low-key basis to suit our client’s lifestyle choice. Should you not wish to trade with all the rooms, it would be easy enough to turn the top floor and some second-floor bedrooms into apartments. The property is in good condition and it is only being placed onto the open market because of imminent retirement. The property retains its drinks license, which allows guests to order champagne or a bottle of wine upon arrival. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
