The beautiful, well-established historic coaching inn “Stanley Arms Hotel” is now up for sale.
- 14 letting rooms
- Popular restaurant
- CAMRA Member and in the Good Beer Guide for 6 consecutive years
This thriving hotel is situated in picturesque surroundings, along the A595 in Calderbridge, Seascale. The A595 is the main trunk route connecting Whitehaven with Barrow and to Kendal and the M6 beyond. The location really has the best of both worlds – benefiting from tranquil, glorious countryside whilst also being well-connected and easily accessible. The charming village is one of the most westerly areas of the Lake District National Park with Ennersdale Water and Wastwater close by, with excellent walks, beaches and scenery just minutes from the hotel, for guests (and owner!) to enjoy.
The property dates back to 1825 where it was used as a coaching inn and has been extensively refurbished and extended over the years, with Wi-Fi available throughout the premises. The 14 beautifully decorated, cosy letting rooms (11 double/twin, one single, two family rooms) are all en suite and fully equipped with shower/bath, TV/DVD players and hairdryers, alongside tea and coffee making facilities. The ground floor consists of a welcoming reception area, a main bar with feature-panelled chimney, another bar/lounge area, a games room and a snug. The popular restaurant accommodates 20 covers with a large, fully equipped commercial kitchen and WC facilities. There is also a dry goods store, a laundry and prep room and a large cellar, which is well kept with a bottle cellar, beer cellar and boiler room. The premises also include an 18-seater conference room with two 50" smart screens and a 6ft projection screen. Externally, there is a large beer garden extending down to the banks of the river Calder, which has been voted one of the best in Cumbria. There is forecourt parking and a large car park to the side, plus an owner’s private garden with a fully powered workshop.
The hotel boasts an unparalleled reputation and prides itself on its outstanding customer service and high-quality food and drink - including traditional home-cooked food and ales. This esteemed hotel has been a CAMRA member and listed in the Good Beer Guide for 6 consecutive years. The business sees a high level of loyal and repeat custom from both the local residents and tourists visiting the area. The hotel has been under the current ownership for the last eight years and has a strong reputation within the region, receiving fantastic reviews online with a Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor.
As well as letting rooms and the bar and restaurant, the business brings in additional revenue from the 18 seater conference room and popular takeaway service. This successful business boasts a turnover of £250,000, thus making it a sound and lucrative investment. Furthermore, there is great scope to expand this already thriving business, if the new owner so wishes. With the right sales and marketing drives, there is potential to expand the loyal, repeat customer base. Furthermore, the hotel is in close proximity to the Sellafield complex- which already provides the hotel with substantial trade. This complex is one of the largest industrial complexes in Europe, and is likely to extend, meaning further business for the hotel.
Not only will the buyer be gaining a thriving, well established business, they will also personally benefit from the beautiful beaches, picturesque countryside and idyllic way of life themselves. With a glowing reputation and a solid customer base, this is a great turnkey investment for anyone looking for a business in the hotel industry.
