Nidderdale Bunkhouse Is a stunning former seven bedroom estate house sitting in the Nidderdale Valley overlooking the pretty Gouthwaite Reservoir, near to market towns such as Skipton, Harrogate, Ripon and Ilkley
Providing cost effective holiday let accommodation for the larger groups (upto 20) the bunkhouse is ideally situated in the Yorkshire Dales for all types of groups, eg walking clubs, family gathering, reunions, school activities and corporate events.
Converted by the current owners who had prior experience in the bunkhouse business in 2016 to provide a more comfortable and homelike alternative to basic bunkbarns traditionally used by larger groups and includes a large open kitchen diner, a huge guest lounge area to seat all 20 people, four large open bedrooms all with onsuite shower rooms and toilet, and large car parking for 10 vehicles and large lawn for guests. A fully fitted fire alarm is installed throughout.
In addition, a three bed owners family home accommodation is incorporated in the same building, providing a huge farmhouse style kitchen, large walk in pantry and a further utility/laundry room. A family living room and further sitting room/office both with wood burning stoves. Upstairs are three large bedrooms and a large bathroom with shower. Separate owners car parking for upto five vehicles and lawn ensure privacy. All gives the opportunity to live on site at zero cost whilst eanring a nice lifestle income from the bunkhouse.
This business is operated on roughly 3-4 hours a week maximum workload and has no requirements to be on site as it can be operated from afar. The business has its own fantastic website (www.nidderdalebunkhouse.com) that drives all business, with limited advertising needed. Currently being run as a low key easy lifestyle business that can be (and has been ) operated remotely with no need to be on site. unlike a time intensive B&B, there is no requirement to meet guests in any way. All bookings/payments and correspondence is done online. Further opportunities to increase business are considerable, firstly by increasing marketing activities then by increasing the bunkhouse footprint by incorporating the owners accommodation into it, or by converting to a high end B&B. Also worth noting that this is a fully residential property and therefore not restricted by any commercial planning.
Its very rare to find a simple easy to operate business such as this that gives consistent revenue for almost no workload.
