Cornerstone also said: “The owners’ accommodation is on the garden level and can be accessed via the entrance hallway on the ground floor as well as a private entrance at the rear.

“The business has been in our clients’ hands since 2004. Our clients have run the business for nearly 20 years and have placed Dalmore Lodge on the market in order that they can consider their retirement.”

The agent added: “The bed and breakfast is run to suit our clients’ individual requirements. They choose to trade the business for 5 to 6 months of the year during the season and close during the autumn and winter months. Our clients are able to trade the business successfully and very profitably in this manner.

“Our clients only offer bed and breakfast but there is obvious scope for an evening meal offering for guests. It is strongly felt that any new owners wishing to trade the business all year round will benefit from an instant uplift in turnover with a corresponding attractive rise in profitability.”

The property is on the market at a guide price of £775,000.
