A wonderful business opportunity to own a successful Guest House with excellent turnover in the Lake District National Park.

Meadowcroft is located on the A591 with beautiful views of open countryside and Ings church. The attractive detached property, which has been well maintained by the current owners, both inside and outside, occupies a prominent position and is convenient for access to the the wide range of activities and sights offered within the Lakes and surrounding areas, public transport services and road links to the M6. The well renowned Watermill public house and restaurant is just a short stroll from the front door, Ings filling station offers an extensive Londis convenience store and there are many excellent local walks in the vicinity. There are gardens, seating areas and ample parking.

The business is currently operating with nine beautifully presented letting rooms, each having it's own en suite bathroom or shower room. The additional three rooms are being utilised as a guest lounge, staff bedroom and en suite bedroom for a family member and offer great potential to increase the letting rooms to 12 if required. There is also private owners accommodation comprising sitting/dining room, bedroom and shower room.

The accommodation is laid to three floors with the ground floor offering a porch, entrance hall, two double bedrooms with Bedroom 1 having an en suite shower room and Bedroom 2, which is currently being used for a disabled relative, having an en suite wet room. The impressive L-shaped dining room, which offers 24 covers and retains the original feature windows dating back to c.1930 offers access to the fully equipped commercial kitchen, utility room and boiler room with storage.

The private owners accommodation, which also has independent external access via a covered porch, comprises a private entrance hall with storage, sitting room, bedroom and shower room.

The first floor is accessed via an attractive split level landing with storage and offers four letting bedrooms with en suite shower rooms, two letting bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and further Bedroom 6 and private Bathroom 6, which are currently being used as a guest lounge and staff bathroom.

The second floor, also accessed via a split level landing with storage, has Bedroom 10 which sleeps up to a family of five and has an en suite bathroom, Bedroom 11 which is currently being used as staff room accommodation and has a separate W.C. on the landing, and Bedroom 12 which can accommodate a family of three and has a en suite bathroom. Bedroom 12 also has access to a store which could potentially create an en suite for bedroom 11.

The property benefits from double glazing to the most part, has gas central heating and is offered for sale with no upper chain.

Outside has beautifully presented gardens and ample driveway parking for guests. There is also private driveway parking, enclosed outdoor space, paved patio and storage for the owners use. Additionally there is a quality construction previously used as a cattery.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see: https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/en-gb/about-checker#Answer_0_2

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
