Bath guesthouse put on the market for £1.3m | Item

A guesthouse on Bath’s Belvedere has hit the property market, with offers of around £1.3million for freehold.

Formerly a pub, Hill House was completely refurbished in 2011 to create a ‘high quality’ six-bedroom B&B in a ‘beautiful and elevated’ location in Bath, and has a breakfast room as well as a garden interior connected to the owner’s accommodation.

Co-owner Harry Tedstone said: “Douglas Yeates and I really enjoy our business. Hill House and Bath have been very good to us. Bath is a great place to live, work and of course visit. However, after running many different businesses for many years, we decided it was now time to move on – to our next adventure!

“Bath is known for its thriving, creative and supportive independent sector. The peer support we have received from organizations such as the Bath Independent Guest House Association has been invaluable to us when we started the business. Any new owner will be able to connect to these networks in order to maintain or further develop the business as they wish.

Ed Jefferson, of the hotels team at Colliers International, handling the sale, said: “Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been a tourist hotspot for centuries. With two universities, numerous museums, festivals and events not to mention Bath rugby, the city is a year-round destination with visitors from all over the world.
