Property Description

Established bed and breakfast business in a landmark building with 11 en suite double bedrooms and separate 2 bedroom owner\'s accommodation.

DESCRIPTION
Arch House is a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial bed and breakfast business in a landmark Grade II Listed building, believed to date back to 1793 and located just a short stroll from the centre of town at Wells-next-the-Sea. The business offers luxurious en suite accommodation with superbly presented communal areas, gardens and parking and has a Visit England Four Star Guest Accommodation award and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
The current owner acquired Arch House 10 years ago and has transformed the building from a former care home into the celebrated bed and breakfast business that it is today having completely refurbished the accommodation to ensure that guests are offered a comfortable stay in a cool, calm, contemporary setting in a wonderful historic building. There is also scope to increase the current level of turnover by offering extra food services such as evening meals.
The business currently offers 11 individual en-suite double and twin rooms and guests have access to a communal garden room, the use of a peaceful sunny garden with meals taken in the spacious dining rooms. There is also separate owner\'s accommodation briefly comprising open plan kitchen/living space, study/dressing room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a private gated garden. Parking is to the rear where there is 1 space for each of the guest suites and a further 2 spaces owner\'s parking.
The centre of Wells-next-the-Sea is just a short stroll away making this property not only a lucrative bed and breakfast business but also a potential boutique hotel, substantial holiday home with letting potential or a spacious family house with annexe accommodation.
If required, the fixtures and fittings are available by separate negotiation.

SITUATION
Wells-next-the-Sea is an attractive Georgian coastal town with good access to the market towns of Fakenham, King\'s Lynn, Holt and Norwich. Wells-next-the-Sea has many amenities and leisure activities on offer in the town or close by in the neighbouring coastal villages including, sailing, bird watching, walking, first class accommodation and restaurants, nursery, primary and secondary schools, doctor\'s surgery, 2 supermarkets, bank and a full range of diverse, independent shops.
The Quay is still the hub of the town with the familiar sight of \"gillying\" - fishing for shore crabs and the resident Dutch sailing ketch Albatros alongside the small fishing fleet and growing number of leisure craft. The beach, a mile along the beach road and accessible via the sea wall walk, car or the small railway, boasts beautiful sands, dunes and colourful beach huts fringing the pinewoods.
