 The current owners have decided to place the Castle Arms Hotel on the market for sale as a going concern at offers over £395,000 freehold. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with the skills and experience to further develop the potential of the hotel and to create further letting rooms, either as Hotel bedrooms or as self catering accommodation, and with the increasing popularity of the North Coast 500 there is great scope for expansion.

The Hotel currently has a total of 9 letting bedrooms, one of which is a two bedroom suite and can easily be used as owners or managers accommodation, with some interior rooms ready for renovation and some exterior space available for redevelopment and creation of additional letting rooms. The suite and a further three bedrooms are on the first floor of the main building which was originally a coaching inn in the mid 1800's, with a further five bedrooms outside around the courtyard, and these were previously stables for the horses. There is a lounge bar with a separate quiet lounge for guests, a restaurant with capacity for 30 - 40 covers, and a commercial kitchen. There is a separate owners lounge and a commercial laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer.

The Hotel is situated on a  plot of around 6 acres in total, much of which is light woodland with a garden area suitable for growing vegatables and space for chickens to run around in and provide fresh eggs for breakfasts.

The property has bulk Calor Gas for the heating systems and cooker, and mains electricity, and comes supplied with all fixtures, fittings and equipment to enable a buyer to walk in and operate immediately.

The business would suit a younger couple and would be ideal for someone trained as a chef to increase the turnover in the dining room as the area is in real need of extra dining capacity to cater for all the bed and breakfast and guest houses which have recently boomed. The local area is pollution free as there is no air traffic and road traffic is minimal, other than the tourist traffic. There are two doctor's surgeries locally and getting appointments is easy compared to other parts of the country with same day appointments available.
