Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Mere Cottage.

This attractive 19th century, spacious cottage is a well-established guest house with a fantastic reputation. Our clients have worked tirelessly to establish the business since inception in 2015, and boast a regular clientele all year round, with a good mix of business, social and tourist trade.

As per the 2016 accounts the business reports a healthy turnover of £52,000 with a gross profit around 86%.

In 2015, our clients spent a considerable amount of money lovingly restoring the cottage, whilst retaining beautiful original features such as the oak flooring. The bed and breakfast now offers four luxury, individually designed en-suite rooms. Guest lounge and breakfast room and a beautifully maintained private garden. The business offers a homely feel but with all the amenities for today's modern-day living.

In addition, there is a further converted living space in the attic, with the potential to either be used as further guest accommodation or owners living quarters.

The business has an informative website www.merecottage.co.uk, giving further information about the business, on-line -booking facilities and photo gallery. Bookings are also available via other well-known booking sites including Booking.com, Expedia, Airbnb and Trip Adviser - with excellent reviews from each site and comments such as "Fantastic little B&B and "Tremendous Value". They are the no.1 bed and breakfast in Alsager on Trip Advisor.

There are 8 restaurants and two pubs within a five minute walk from Mere Cottage and our clients have negotiated discounts with local restaurants for guests.

This is an ideal business for anyone wishing to start in the hospitality industry or run a business that is easy to manage, with the business reluctantly coming to the market due to our clients impending retirement.
