Luxury ‘easy-to-run’ BnB with impressive turnover seeks new owner


Luxury BnB, Copper Beech House near Gatwick is calling for new ownership to exploit the massive potential of the business.

The six-bed property, situated close to the town centre of Crawley, has held a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for three consecutive years and currently turns over between £2,500 and £3,000 per week, even though the business shuts most (school) holidays and many weekends.

The Victorian property is home to many of its original features, including stained glass windows, fire places, wooden flooring and high period ceilings.

Its current owner had occupied the property for approximately 14 years, first establishing the BnB in 2012.

Since then the business has grown exponentially, and is highly rated on all booking websites.

Within the acquisition, there is the potential to grow the business with planning permission already accepted for extra accommodation.

Brenda, the current owner commented: “I have fine-tuned the running of this luxury B&B over a number of years and run all aspects of the business single-handedly. Working circa seven hours a day, I generally turnover between £2500 and £3000 per week. It is an ideal business for one off-site member of staff, however there is also planning permission for manager’s accommodation at a cost of around £35k. I choose to shut during the lucrative holiday periods as a lifestyle choice, and therefore the business will offer instant growth potential to the new owner. Crawley/Gatwick property values continue to grow above the national average so the property itself is an exceptionally good bricks and mortar investment.”

Fleurets are inviting offers for the freehold off a guide price of £795,000.
