A guest house in North Yorkshire has been sold off a guide price of £795k to a couple taking their first steps into the hotel market.
Fairhaven Country Guest House in Goathland has been sold by owners Liz and Keith Pritchard and daughter and son-in-law Kelly and Richard Batley who acquired the 9-bedroom property in 2009.
The new owners are Peter and Sarah Garnett, who have made the move into the hospitality trade in the North York Moors National Park after selling their house in Harrogate.
The Fairhaven is an Edwardian property which has recently been refurbished and alongside its nine bedrooms, it also boasts family-size accommodation for owners, a large car park plus expansive garden.
Peter Bean, director in Colliers International’s hotel agency team, who advised the vendors on the sale, said: “I have known The Fairhaven for many years. It’s a very attractive property with excellent facilities and it has always been a very good business. Many people dream of upping sticks and moving to the country to run a hospitality business and Peter and Sarah have succeeded in their ambition. It is the perfect country guest house from which to enjoy the delights of the North York Moors National Park and other surrounding locations.”
