Retirement sparks ‘reluctant’ sale of holiday business in Beer

EDN adRetirement has prompted the ‘reluctant sale’ of a holiday home business a short walk from the beach at Beer after 17 years in the same hands.

The freehold sale of end-of-terrace five-bedroom Belmont House, in Dolphin Road, Beer, is on the market with offers in excess of £450,000.

Stonesmith estate agents, selling the property, said: “The sale of Belmont House is reluctantly offered for sale due to retirement.

“Potential exists to re-establish Belmont House as a thriving bed and breakfast business and there is also the opportunity to continue letting Belmont House on a room only/ holiday let basis.

“Our client does not envisage any issues with re-establishing the lucrative bed and breakfast trade, especially by making use of the various online accommodation booking websites, as there are only five bed-and-breakfasts in Beer and there is a considerable demand for guest accommodation in the village.”

The estate agents said the property is thought to date back around 200 years and is built from Beer stone with a pitched roof.

It is described as having five en-suite double bedrooms, a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom.

Outside, to the front of the property, is a small terrace with a seating area and to the rear is an enclosed gravel garden with a timber beach hut.
