The area is extremely popular with tourists and Lodgehill provides an excellent base from which to explore the West country, being centrally placed between the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks and the North and South Devon coastlines.

Lodgehill Hotel has been owned and run by our clients for over 13 years. Through personal choice, and with impending retirement in mind, our clients have taken a more relaxed approach to running the business over recent years and consequently they have deliberately restricted trade levels in order to suit their lifestyle requirements. Undoubted potential exists to exploit the business, especially as there is a lack of available letting bedrooms in Tiverton meaning that letting accommodation is always in demand. The hotel has a website www.lodgehillhotel.co.uk and advertising is currenty limited to this, together with associated accommodation booking portals.
The freehold business is on the market for £575,000. Full property details are available from the website www.stonesmith.co.uk and viewings arranged by calling 01392 201262.
