Lavender Lodge, a four-star bed & breakfast situated in Hoole, a popular residential area of Cheshire, has come to market through Christie & Co, with a price tag of £750k.
Occupying an elegant Edwardian property, the bed & breakfast comprises seven letting bedrooms arranged across the main building and adjoining private annex, all of which enjoy pleasant views across the gardens and the grounds of the neighbouring church.
Lavender Lodge also benefits from an attractive breakfast room with dual aspect windows, as well as a peaceful courtyard to the rear of the property where guests can relax and unwind.
The business also includes one bedroom owner’s accommodation situated on the first floor, ideal for an owner operator. If not required by potential purchasers, there is the potential that this could be converted into a further letting bedroom, generating additional revenue.
The B&B is ideally located on Hoole Road, which provides direct access to Chester city centre, Chester Railway Station and surrounding visitor attractions, and also benefits from high ratings on both Booking.com and Trip Advisor.
Lavender Lodge is currently owned by Frederika Davies, who has operated the business for 18 years and is seeking a sale in order to retire. She said, “It has been a pleasure to live and work in Cheshire. I have met so many interesting and colourful characters from the UK and around the world. I would thoroughly recommend the B&B industry to anyone looking for a flexible and rewarding career.”
Keith Stringer, Director at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, said, “Hoole is a popular location for hotels and B&Bs. The charm of the surrounding village with its myriad bars and restaurants, as well as the easy access to Chester city centre, generates high demand from both guests and operators.
“Lavender Lodge has done an excellent job in differentiating itself through both a comfortable, welcoming environment and excellent hospitality, as evidenced by the consistently strong online reviews.
'This provides potential purchasers with a fantastic platform from which to further develop the business, and we expect Lavender Lodge to generate significant interest as a result.”
