SWALLOWS NEST BED & BREAKFAST LIMITED commenced trading in November 2021 providing a high quality, boutique Bed and Breakfast.
Promoted through Booking.com, TripAdvisor, and other online websites and social media assets, the business enjoys excellent reviews and many returning customers, particularly hikers taking on the Yorkshire 3 peaks. The customer database is included in the sale.
Delivering positive operating profits, the property has been subject to a tasteful refurbishment to include: new central heating boiler; underfloor heating to the breakfast and sitting rooms; stylish redecoration; new contemporary kitchen; new bathroom for one of the rooms; quality furnishing, fixtures and fittings. Following the completion of these works - which has necessitated periods of closure - there is now an opportunity to further enhance profits with extended availability. The large garden to the rear also has potential for shepherd's hut style accommodation subject to the appropriate consents.
The directors of Swallows Nest Bed and Breakfast currently let all 4 bedrooms, but there is the option to live-in, if preferred.
Subject to application, a new 5 year full repairing and insuring lease is available at a rent of £18,000 per annum with a rent review provision after year 2. Small Business Rates with a ratable value of £4,750 - currently subject to 100% relief.
The company is available for a consideration of £114,000 (100% share purchase agreement). To include: goodwill: furniture; fittings; kitchenware; free standing appliances; soft furnishings; linen; customer database; website and social media assets. Full inventory available.

Outside, there is a pleasant patio seating area to the front aspect - ideal for guests after a day spent exploring the fells - and a large garden to the rear, with potential for
further seating and/or a shepherd's hut. There are lovely views across open Dales country to the rear.
A gateway to the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, Clapham is a truly charming conservation village, famous for the incredibly scenic walk to Ingleborough Cave and beyond to Trow Gill and Gaping Gill. There's a great ascent of Ingleborough - one of the three peaks - from the doorstep of Swallows Nest B&B. The limestone karst scenery of the Dales is a draw for outdoor enthusiasts with superb opportunities for cycling, hiking and caving. The award-winning Clapham Village Store is just a short walk from Swallows Nest and caters for day-to-day needs.
Just outside the village, Clapham Train Station provides connections on the Leeds/Lancaster line. Bus services run from the village to Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale. These bustling market towns are a short drive away, both providing a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and bars. The A65 provides easy connections for Skipton, Kendal and the M6.
As well the Dales, the location is also perfect for day trips to the Lake District, Forest of Bowland and Morecambe Bay.
