This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a long established self-catering holiday business just inland from the North Cornish coast. Currently offering eighteen 4*Gold holiday cottages and excellent facilities for guests, a new owner could continue with the existing successful operation or look to further develop the site by implementing the planning permission, expanding the current offering and extending the operating period.Location
The property is set in just over 17 acres of land on the northern edge of the village of Stratton in North Cornwall. The nearby A39 road links to Barnstaple to the North and Wadebridge to the South and provides excellent access to the picturesque North Cornish coastline.

facilities including a challenging 18-hole links golf course. There are excellent sandy beaches, ideal for surfing and extensive cliff walks along some of the UKs most dramatic coastline. The South West Coast Path, England's longest waymarked
footpath stretching for 630 miles, is just over a mile away.
The former market town of Launceston (18 miles) has a wide range of facilities and access to the A30 trunk road, which links the Cathedral Cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and an international airport.The Manor House
