One of the great benefits of being a ‘Business Transfer Agent’ is to have the opportunity of enjoying visiting, learning about and ultimately marketing some truly fine properties.
These landmark and often historic properties rarely come to the market so to have three come along at the same time is very exciting.
Buying a business has to be in theory a decision based on hard nosed numbers and projections but with hospitality businesses its often love at first sight for a buyer thus the heart leads with the head following. These three I'm sure will capture lots of hearts.
Trehellas House Hotel and Restaurant in the hamlet of Washaway is roughly equidistant between Bodmin and Wadebridge. Prior to becoming a hotel in the 1970’s Trehellas House had been an Inn, a Court of Petty Sessions and a Farmhouse.
