Three ‘surf chic’ Bude boutiques on sale for £4.75m


Three boutique hotels in Cornwall owned by a local family in Bude have gone up for sale for an asking price of £4.75m.

The ‘surf chic’ hotels – Hebasca, An Mor and Tommy Jacks – are being marketed by Colliers International and collectively offer 70 bedrooms on North Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast.

Each property has recently seen significant investment and refurbishment since their launch onto the market, and all three are expected to generate a lot of interest given their popularity with the leisure sector in Cornwall.

Hebasca was the first hotel bought by the family in 2012. It offers 23 bedrooms a cocktail bar and restaurant. An Mor started life as an outdoor pool before being transformed into an outdoor bar and party venue plus 27 bedrooms.

Tommy Jacks, The Times Top UK Budget Hotel 2014 and 2015, is closest to the beach. With 20 bedrooms and a family-friendly restaurant called Sea Jacks, the hotel also features a sun terrace.

Colliers International hotels director Simon Wells said: “The hotels have been overhauled and refurbished for a whole new generation of fun-loving but demanding holidaymakers and offer a terrific year-round business and not to mention exciting growth potential.”

The local family owners, who have a passion for property development, now wish to retire.

Wells added: “Potential buyers shouldn’t be put off by the fun and funky approach – Tommy Jacks has already won the Times Budget hotel category two years in a row and An Mor was named as an up and coming hotel to watch for 2015. All three preserve their own distinct character and there is scope for joined-up management, staffing and marketing.”
