The Business
This highly successful, award winning and long-established business, has excellent trading accounts, indeed, some of the best we have seen within the industry. Accounts can be made available to bona fide potential purchasers following viewing. The cottages are multi-award winning, having won the gold award in the Cornwall Tourism Awards in 2014/15 for accessibility, the silver award for best dog friendly accommodation, and were highly commended in both the self-catering cottages of the year and sustainable tourism categories. They were also Dog Friend Business of the Year in Cornwall and the South West in 2016/17 and were awarded the coveted VisitEngland Rose (recognition of service excellence) in 2019 and also hold a gold award from GTBS (Green Tourism Business Scheme), and finally, in the 2020/21 Cornwall Tourism Awards they won Silver for Dog-friendly Business of the Year, and Bronze in the South West Tourism Awards in the same category.

Biomass Boiler and Solar
A Biomass boiler was commissioned in June 2013, which now generates a useful income stream from RHI payments, which are index linked and will continue until 2033. The boiler supplies all the hot water on site. Other money saving investments have been made in recent years, including a 17kwh solar array, along with two Tesla powerwall batteries storing 14kwh each. Also, a borehole was installed and provides a private supply of water with the mains still connected for a back-up. All these improvements combine to generate not only considerable income, but also substantial cost saving on utilities.

The Land
The property lies within a whole of approximately 21 acres. This is made up of gardens, parkland style grounds with trees and open spaces and paddock land, currently rented to a local farmer. There is, therefore, plenty of space for most needs including, growing, livestock, equestrian and generous recreation/play space.

Electric, mains and private water supply, private drainage, Biomass boiler supplies hot water for all properties on site. Solar panels contribute towards electricity used on site.

The owners house is in Council Tax Band G whilst the 4 cottages have a rateable value of £10,250.
