Luxury 5-star Bed and Breakfast with Chalets, Dunnet Bay


Advert ref: 1134SAF

Dunnet Bay Escapes is an outstanding example of a 5-star bed and breakfast business. The property sits in a truly breath-taking trading location which benefits from picturesque views of the Dunnet Bay coastline.

This superb opportunity has been trading since 2017, with the addition of two luxury garden suites in 2018, there is planning permission to add a third.

The business trades to a high level, with a busy summer season in 2023 and strong forward bookings going forward.It is a genuine wish to retire from the hospitality trade that has resulted in the property being reluctantly presented to the market.

The property is finished to an extremely high standard throughout and is a true turnkey boutique style accommodation business, which lives up to its 5-star grading in every possible way.

Sitting a stone's throw away from the Dunnet Bay coastline and on the hugely popular North Coast 500 route the business offers flexible trading options with 2 (potentially 3) letting bedrooms, 2 garden suites and a further owner’s bedroom.

The accommodation is of an extremely high standard. Internally, highlights include the Mansefield Suite which is generously sized with an incredible balcony and the Bay Suite with sea views and a free-standing bath.

Breakfast is served in a beautiful dining area, which comfortably seats groups of 8. Externally, two stylish garden suites can be found which are built to a very high standard and come well equipped with coffee machines, SMEG appliances, ample storage and large shower rooms. Each benefit from spectacular sea vistas and designated car parking. 

Stretching for over 2 miles, Dunnet Bay is a spectacular white sandy beach which offers great opportunities to sunbathe, paddle, swim and indulge in other beach sports. The beach is a surfer’s haven. The bay also offers excellent opportunities for wildlife spotting including many types of seabirds.
