A couple who have been at the helm of a successful b&b in Stourport for the last 13 years have decided to put the property on the market as they look to retire.
The Victoria Villa Bed and Breakfast in Stourport-on-Severn has been owned by Jo and Matt Lamb since 2003 and is home to seven bedrooms, a lounge and dining rooms, plus owner’s accommodation and a gated private car park.
The business has seen an increase in turnover year-on-year and will be part of the new Marina Quays scheme, which was recently given the go ahead by Wyre Forst Council and will see £20m invested in the area.
The Victoria Villa enjoys strong trade from the nearby tourist hotspots including the Severn Valley Railway and West Midlands Safari Park.
Charles Jones, business agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale of the business and said, “Victoria Villa is located in a prominent town centre location and is an excellent lifestyle business opportunity.
“This is a very successful business which is ideally suited for both executive business clientele, site contractors and fishermen – after all, the River Severn is only a few minutes’ walk from the property and Larford Lakes fishing venue and many other fisheries just a short drive away.
“Post referendum, the hospitality sector has seen levels of activity improve with confidence coming back as things settle down.”
