Northampton buyers for Lake District B&B

Beechwood Guest House, which lies in the heart of the Lake District National Park, has changed hands.

The award-winning property is on Beresford Road on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, a village founded by the Vikings in the 11th-century. It is just a five-minute stroll from Lake Windermere (which was originally called Vinand's Mere after a local Viking chief).

Facilities include six bedrooms (with two four-poster rooms) to sleep 12 guests; a three-bedroom owners' flat on the ground floor; a 12-seat dining room with a corner bay window; and a residents' lounge with a bay window and carved fireplace.

Outdoors, there is a car park to the front, two private seating areas to the rear, and outside seating and a garden area for guests.

Castle Inn, which trades on a B&B basis, achieved trading profits of £65,245 on a £94,465 net turnover. Accolades include a four-star Gold Award guest accommodation rating from VisitBritain and entry in the Best B&B Guide and the LHA Where to Stay Guide.

The Manchester office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £875,000 on behalf of Tony and Marion Ewing.

New owners Owen and Rita Parker move to Cumbria with their son and daughter-in-law from Northampton.
