A lifestyle opportunity with great income potential, Gorslwyd Farm is an established business comprising a beautiful, detached 4 bed farmhouse with a 1 bedroom self contained annexe, offering B&B accommodation along with 6 holiday cottages sleeping 36 and with the potential for another one or two cottages in addition. The whole is set in approx. 4 acres of gardens and land. It is close to the beautiful Cardigan Bay, with the coastal resort of Aberporth being just over a mile away. Set off the main road, Gorslwyd Farm is in a quiet rural location but within easy reach of lots of great places for walking, riding and water sports.
The main residence features 4 bedrooms, three bedrooms having en suite facilities. The house has plenty of character with beamed ceilings and a large Inglenook fireplace in the living room. At the moment, the owners offer farmhouse B&B in addition to the holiday / leisure / wellness accommodation.
The business side is largely focused on environmentally friendly family self-catering holidays and a range of retreats, themed around various events and therapies. Gorslwyd Farm has a Green Tourism Gold award and has been awarded 4* rating by the Welsh Tourist Board. The property was originally set up for holidays back in the 1980s and since then has always been aimed at holidays for peace and tranquility, offering a chance to relax and unwind and rest or to rebalance. It is with this in mind that the owners have invested heavily in greener technologies and also provided those staying with a wealth of quiet corners in which to sit back and contemplate.
This is an ideal setting for those wanting to offer something more than just run of the mill holiday accommodation.
