The sale includes fixtures and fittings, stock, bookings and deposits.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this fantastic 150 year old Victorian country house, currently run as a weekend family holiday let, having many original features, from the magnificent 40 foot entrance hall with huge old radiators, the stunning drawing room with open fire, dining room with table large enough to seat all together, through to the spacious bedrooms sleeping up to 24 Adults or 20 Adults plus children with ease.

Presently, the house lets out for between £700 per night to £998 per night and has many forward bookings, some as far away as Christmas/new year 2019/20.

The property is set within approaching 2 acres of mature gardens and grounds having a private enclosed leisure area with large heated pool, hot tub, outside kitchen with fridge/freezer and range cooker. This area is rented out separately for £700 per stay and is a great addition to anyone’s stay.

Within the beautifully manicured gardens we also have three 1 bedroom lettable cottages generating a further income of £575 pcm each.

At present, we believe from the owners that the turnover is around £100,000 per year, however they only let out the main house at weekends, so there is great potential for further revenue and development.

For more information, please see the property as advertised on Trip Advisor:

Hilton Smythe highly recommends viewing of this stunning business opportunity, offering a superb lifestyle change in this most desirable location.



We are advised that the house and business are being sold as a Freehold opportunity.




The business is run by the current owners.

Financial Profile

We believe from the owners that the property presently turns over circa £100,000.


Penkelly nestles within its own grounds, circa 2 acres, in a lovely rural village location in Bartestree, however it is only 3/4 miles from the centre of the city of Hereford, which offers a host of amenities including shops, schools, eateries, pubs, churches of various denominations and good access to all surrounding areas.

A comfortable, relaxing, unpretentious base from which to explore the Welsh borders, Malvern Hills and Wye Valley. Books galore in Hay on Wye, antiques in Leominster and Monmouth, shopping in Cheltenham & Gloucester, microbreweries and the Cider Route.

The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners for many years as their family home and more recently as a business and now they are looking towards a well-earned retirement.
