There is also spacious optional owner's/self contained accommodation.

Britmead House has been a very successfully run guest house offering bed and breakfast accommodation. Since 2015 the owners chose to reduce trading due to other business interests. The comprehensive fixtures and fittings associated with the guest house are included in the sale. There is excellent opportunity to fully operate the business again. Alternatively, the house would make a fine private residence, subject to any necessary planning consents.


Historically trading performance has been very impressive over the years with consistent levels of trade and excellent profitability. More information is available to interested buyers.


To the front of the property there are parking facilities for some 8 cars.

The rear garden is good sized, enjoying a sunny west facing aspect. Immediately adjoining is a raised paved terrace and beyond is a large expanse of lawn together with well stocked flower and shrub beds plus large summerhouse.
