Property & Business Summary

TURNOVER c.£120k NET / PROFIT c. £78K PA


Coombe Mill is situated outside the pretty village of St Breward, with the towns of Wadebridge and Bodmin being roughly equi-distant. The peaceful valley setting is dissected by the River Camel, with our clients land and lodges being either side. St Breward has a well known freehouse, with a shop attached, primary schooling and several churches, is within Bodmin Moor and therefore enjoys beautiful rolling countryside and of course is an excellent base to explore the County.

The Properties

Our clients have owned Coombe Mill for the past 17 years and have gradually upgraded and expanded the business from the former units (1960’s), to today provide a sizeable three storey 7 bedroom family home and 6 Holiday Lodges, all developed between 2005 and 2017. The timber properties are well crafted, beautifully presented with modern features and have their own outside space, as well as access to the the river fronting grounds and child friendly amenities.

The Business

The business operates all year and is principally run by our clients with some cleaning assistance and is now being sold due to semi-retirement. The Planning Permission allows for all year round Holiday Use. Our clients have developed the business to offer high end child friendly lodge accommodation, with a ‘farm experience’ and games rooms etc, to make this a truly magical holiday experience, for the parents and their children.

In terms of the trade, we are advised the Net Turnover (after VAT) for the year end November 2019 was £119,167, which produced an adjusted net profit after all expenses of £77,837 pa. Further Accounting information will be made available to interested parties.
Please see our clients website for further details
