Georgian Townhouse B&B Set for Increase in Trade

Georgian Townhouse B&B Set for Increase in Trade

Posted: Tuesday 20 November 2018

As an ever-popular tourist destination, Devon’s unique blend of coast and country means there’s something for everyone when they visit. In the current market, the appetite for leisure and tourism properties remains notably high, and for one seaside property, location was key to its speedy sale.

Every year, tourists are spoilt for choice for places to stay in Devon. But its undoubtedly our coastlines, beaches, and seaside towns that entice many urban visitors to these parts. And the south coast town of Dawlish - being within easy reach of both Exeter to the north, and the Torbay English Riviera towns to the south - has been a popular destination since the 19th century.

When the fully restored Georgian 7-bedroom established B&B, Lammas Park House, came to market, its popularity and business credentials all pointed towards a fast-track sale. But its location proved to be significant in a purchase that saw the property’s freehold sell off an asking price of £650,000.

Situated in the heart of Dawlish, close to amenities, just a few minutes’ walk from the famous Dawlish seafront and with incredible sea views, Lammas Park House was ideally placed for the new owners. And thanks to its location, the 3-storey, Grade II listed, detached property is a popular choice for visitors, with excellent occupancy rates and a healthy profit and turnover.

With spacious and self-contained owners’ accommodation that includes two large bedrooms, the jewels in this coastal property crown are its six, well-appointed letting rooms. From the larger, character-filled suites on the first and second floors to the smaller, but no less grand, rooms on the third floor, many enjoy a magnificent seascape outlook in homely surroundings.

With the B&B business fully established over the last 14 years, the new owners are planning refurbishments throughout, as well as increasing its seasonal April to October opening to accommodate unlimited year-round trading.

Already highly rated on both tourism and booking websites, the continued success of Lammas Park House looks assured. And with the proposed refurb and increase in trading, both the town and regional economies looks set for a boost as well.

Jon Clyne, Director at Charles Darrow commented: “Dawlish & Teignmouth have been high on our requirement list for buyers for a number of years now and we were delighted to complete the sale of Lammas Park to Mr & Mrs Deacon. The business already enjoys a loyal following and we anticipate this to grow further, with the new owner’s plans”.
