A superb holiday cottage complex in a picturesque rural setting.
The owners of neighboring Gales House Farm
have developed a successful holiday letting operation which has been active for over 11 years, maintaining very high standards and offering a true rural retreat, helping to attract a consistently high level of repeat bookings.
In addition to restoring and converting extra cottages to the highest specification, they have obtained planning permission via Ryedale District Council (Ref: 20/00983/FUL) to convert one of the cottages into a residential dwelling allowing an owner to live on site and manage the remaining three cottages.
The total income from all four cottages from April 2019/20 was £69,679.91 (closed January and February) and the same period 2018/19 was £77,999.11. This is an established business with a loyal customer base, many of whom return year after year.
The collection of cottages is approached through a timber five bar gate opening to reveal a wide gravelled drive and allocated parking areas for each of the buildings. All four cottages have been recently renovated and finished to the very highest standard, each showcasing numerous original features which add to the character and charm. The guide price is to include all fixtures and fittings enabling a buyer to continue the business and take on existing bookings without a void period.
In addition to the cottages is a smart stable block providing seven loose boxes (currently five loose boxes, a laundry and a store). This provides excellent storage for bicycles and gardening equipment but, when combined with the paddock (about 1.5 acres), would enable a future buyer to diversify into pony trekking holidays.
Two of the Cottages face west over a delightful, enclosed patio gardens, the other two open on to a large lawn, each with paved seating area. Beyond the gardens is a copse of trees and open farmland. The surrounding area has wonderful local walks and a network of footpaths leading over the Moors or through the local villages
