Full description

Kings offers both an amazing family home and a substantial income from a successful, long established business. Located in the middle of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, the hostel is surrounded by spectacular mountains, lakes, rivers and wildlife. Set in its own wooded ravine on the foothills of Cader Idris, the location of this property is magnificent. Within the grounds there is a camping field, ancient woodland, river, bridge and island. The scenic mountain stream has pools large enough for a bracing dip and a wild stock of salmon and sea trout. The property is currently arranged to offer 7 letting bedrooms (with 42 beds), a one bedroom self contained unit, which is under renovation, and 5 bedroom family / staff accommodation. Kings is well maintained with double glazing and central heating throughout. The heating system incorporates an economical and eco-friendly thermal heat store.

There are approximately 7 acres with a camping field, fire pit, bike shed, tool shed, river, bridge, island, and ancient woodland. Subject to the relevant permissions, the site could be developed very simply to generate its own green energy by utilising pico hydro, wind turbines and ground source heat pumps. FURTHER INFORMATION Kings offers great flexibility and freedom of choice. As an existing mixed use property (composite hereditament), the new owners could choose to rearrange how the site is divided and allocate more or less of the accommodation to either the family / staff residence or business - without having to obtain further permissions. At the moment, Kings is family owned and the business is operated by a separate company, Sea Snowdonia Ltd. Sea Snowdonia Ltd. has over 12 months of confirmed advance reservations on it's books. The company and all income / balances from outstanding bookings will be made available to the new owners for a nominal cost in addition to the purchase price of the property. Kings is currently affiliated to YHA and has several other booking partners. An excellent business relationship is enjoyed with these partners and the new owners could either continue or discontinue these relationships, as is their preference. (Subject to acceptance). Subject to planning permission, the new owners could also choose to fully develop the whole site, perhaps creating three substantial, separate residential dwellings or many more holiday lets, such as glamping chalets, for example.
