The Clock House Guest House and Licensed Cafe/Restaurant is located in the tourist "Honeypot" location of Marloes, in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park and only a few minutes from the departure point for Skomer and Skokholm Islands. The 4 Star graded property has recently been upgraded to a very high standard and now offers a Reception Area/Residents Lounge, Office, Gift Shop, Ladies and Gentleman's Toilets, Linen Room, Commercial Kitchen, Utility Room and a Café/Restaurant on the ground floor. The first floor has 5 en-suite Guest Bedrooms and a 3 Bedroom Owner's Apartment. Externally there are 3 garages and a car park providing ample parking for guests and customers, as well as a terrace to the front of the property and a private garden to the rear.
The islands of Skomer & Skokholm are famous for their wildlife and in particular their puffin colonies, which attract approximately 25,000 visitors each summer from all over the world. Marloes is also a popular overnight stop for the growing numbers of walkers tackling the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The Clock House benefits from exceptionally high occupancy rates and a long season which runs from March through to the end of October, not only due to its convenience for visitors to Skomer/Skokholm, but also as a preferred accommodation provider for several of the specialist walking holiday companies. The Guest House therefore does not rely on passing trade with almost all of its rooms pre-booked, usually several months in advance.

Currently run to suit current owners requirements, but prospective purchasers have the opportunity to run a flexible business with high occupancy rates and a long season, with scope to extend opening hours of the cafe/restaurant to suit their requirements. This is a highly sort after coastal location attracting visitors from early March through to end of October. Guest House and Café/Restaurant. are run as individual establishments and currently trade under VAT registration level to suit current owners.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a thriving profitable business benefiting from stable consistent revenues and attractive margins, but with further potential in an increasingly popular location.
The Clock House Licensed Cafe/Restaurant enjoys a prime location for visitors passing to and from Martins Haven (the departure point to the islands), the unspoilt beaches of Musselwick and Marloes Sands, the nature reserve of Marloes Mere and the Marloes Peninsular. The current owners operate the Cafe for limited hours during the summer months as a life style choice, but with little choice for food and beverage in the area and well in excess of 250 potential customers passing the cafe to visit the island of Skomer each day, there is significant scope to develop this side of the business.
Property is sold as a going concern with essential Fixtures, Fittings & Furniture for Guest Bedrooms and Kitchen/Café/Restaurant included.
