Devon and Cornwall remain some of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK, offering some of the best coastline, countryside and varied towns and cities in the country.
Here we highlight below some great and varied places to stay in the region, all of which also just happen to have benefited from the expert advice of our specialist hospitality finance advice team at Stewart Hindley and Partners to put them on the road to success.
- Torquay – famous for being the largest town on the “English Riviera” and a popular choice for thousands of visitors to Devon.
Blenheim House B&B in Torquay has everything proprietors Lee and Elaine Ratcliffe were looking for – a good location close to the seafront and train station and accommodation which had just been recently refurbished (so wouldn’t need a lot of money spending on it) and a manageable 5 guest rooms.
From the start of their search they were in touch with us at Stewart Hindley & Partners and we were able to provide them with a judgement on whether their B&B finance application would be successful or not. It was a pleasure to work with Lee & Elaine and to see their hopes and dreams come to fruition, they are now welcoming guests and starting to build the trade to its max. https://www.blenheimhousetorquay.co.uk/
- Exeter – The Exeter Townhouse is a lovely boutique B&B is set in a quiet corner of Exeter city centre yet just a few minutes stroll from the Cathedral, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, the Quayside, shopping centres, restaurants, university and train stations.
The Grade II Listed property has been brought up to date with period and contemporary features offering 9 stylishly decorated rooms. They were awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor in 2016 and 2017 and a 5 star rating from the Food Standards Agency – the highest possible food hygiene rating in the UK.
- Bude – Wyvern House Bed and Breakfast is located in the popular Cornish town of Bude and
is just a few minutes walk from the beach and town centre. The property has 6 en-suite bedrooms and spread over 3 floors and has proved an ideal location for our clients, Paula & James, to set up their new bed and breakfast.
Paula & James had owned and operated a bed and breakfast business so had plenty of experience on which to build their new venture in Bude. Having found their perfect property they soon realised the benefits of using a specialist finance broker to source the necessary funds to purchase it. Having contacted us at Stewart Hindley & Partners we worked with them to secure the best B&B finance deal available to them and took them step by step through each stage.
Paula and James are now welcoming guests to Wyvern House and enjoying life in Cornwall. More info at https://www.wyvernhouse.co.uk/
Penvith Barns has a 4 star rating on Trip Advisor, offering beautiful accommodation just outside Looe with access to lovely walks including the South West Coastal Path to Looe and Seaton Beach. Guests can come and as they please and relax in the tranquil surroundings with views over superb countryside. It’s also close to some of Cornwall’s best beaches and makes a great base for exploring Cornwall’s Attractions.
We are proud to have offered the B&B finance to put Penvith Barns on the map.
