Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Harmony House B&B & Tea Rooms, which opened in 2019. Though the business is thriving, and our clients have thoroughly enjoyed running the Harmony House, the business now comes to the market due to health issues.
This is a very rare opportunity to run a stunning 5-bed luxury Guest House offering bed and breakfast, 1-bed Cottage and Tea Room trading from a very affluent area near York. There are 3 aspects of the business, The B&B Rooms, the Tea Room and the Holiday Let Cottage.
The Tea Room has been a huge success in the village. Our client has been hosting themed nights which have been total sell-outs every time. A very successful guest house and Tea Room business with separate living quarters. Even with the 2020 government restrictions, the Tea Room alone became a huge success on takeaway’s and once a month themed evenings. The cottage is currently advertised through Air B&B with a 5-star rating.
The owner has a dedicated social media page that has a fantastic following and a great platform for advertising.
The property has had a full makeover throughout with nothing to do whatsoever. This business has gone from strength to strength since its establishment.
The commercial lease is protected by the Landlord and Tenant act 1954 which gives you full protection and renewable with 3 years left to run and this is another rarity having the security of tenure.
