Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to market Colman’s of Aysgarth, a boutique bed & breakfast, camping and caravan park in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, presenting a unique opportunity to acquire a quality lifestyle business in the heart of the Dales.
Nestled on a 1.7-acre site within the Wensleydale idyll of Aysgarth, Colman’s of Aysgarth provides modern guesthouse accommodation alongside a touring caravan park and campsite. The family-run business is ideally located within walking distance of the village, Aysgarth Falls and numerous walking and cycling routes nearby, making it an ideal base to explore the region.
The current owners, Matt and Clare Colman have meticulously refurbished the site since acquiring it in 2016, transforming it into one of the highest rated hospitality and leisure businesses in the region, with a 9.9 Booking.com rating and a 5-star (Excellent) rating on Tripadvisor. Their efforts have been recognised with several awards, including Best Certificated Site, Warmest Club Welcome and Family Friendly Site in 2019 and Warmest Club Welcome 2022 by the Camping & Caravanning Club.
Over recent times, Matt and Clare have operated the business on more of a lifestyle basis, choosing to let only three of the guest house bedrooms and trade six days per week. A new hands-on operator could help it realise its full potential.
Matt comments, “We have built the dream lifestyle and welcomed so many wonderful guests over the last seven years, who have made Colman’s into a ‘must stay’ campsite and bed & breakfast. We are excited to be able to give another family the opportunity to take Colman’s to the next level, building on our successes.”
David Lee, Regional Director – Hotels North is handling the sale and comments, “We are delighted to offer this superb lifestyle business for sale in an idyllic part of North Yorkshire. Colman’s is immaculately presented throughout and offers real opportunity for growth and significant development of the operation, We encourage interested parties to get in touch.”
