Rowson Street, New Brighton,
What a fantastic opportunity! Have you ever dreamt of running your own successful bed and breakfast? Or are you on the look-out for that substantial family home? Dunsandles Guest House sits proud on a corner plot, approx. 200 metres from the promenade, close to the Floral Pavilion and other amenities; in the words of a prior guest “an ideal location near the water in Wallasey”. This property oozes a real family feel with lots of original features complimented by modern upgrades, and boasting stunning views from the majority of the rooms. Welcoming visitors all year round, this well-known and respected Victorian Guest House has many repeat bookings, great reviews and top ratings. Having 7 en-suite letting rooms, a self-contained attic apartment, kitchen and extension incorporating dining area and crafts/storage room. Such a superb location with a courtyard garden. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
A personal message from the current owner:
In 2003, I bought Dunsandles from a lady who had opened her house to guests in New Brighton; I was a paying visitor and intrigued by the prospect of running my own business. The lady had 3 letting rooms, none of which were en-suite, and the potential to own a successful Guest House was evidently inviting. Since then, Helen & I have developed the business which now has 7 en-suite rooms, which are all individually designed with boutique features, soft furnishings and tailored décor. It also has a large attic which houses the owner’s accommodation including kitchenette and en-suite. Over the years we have continually improved the property and in 2012 we built an extension to provide a large dining room; part of the extension is a wooden insulated beach hut, which Helen uses as her workshop. We have now entered our 60’s and have bought a property in France, which is the reason for selling Dunsandles. We now want to retire from being hosts to the many wonderful people who have walked through our door and stayed with us.
Between 3-5 years ago, we pushed the business hard and had an impressive turnover of around £100k making a profit between £36-48k. Since then we have developed the house further with new windows and roofing, and the addition of a further letting room. The building comes with all the regulatory requirements which have been maintained over the years. I strongly believe the success of the business benefits from its location and many repeat visits from guests. We have slowed down since then as unavoidably our energy levels have dropped, but we still manage to run the business successfully.
The house sits proud on a corner elevation and is only 200 metres from the promenade and the beach. There are so many potentials to owning this Guest House in its favoured location, with New Brighton itself offering sea fishing, crazy golf and the Marine Point development; just to name a few – plus the Floral Pavilion from which we have had many famous guests stay with us. This attracts many visitors all year round, some of whom need accommodation close by. This new and exciting development of New Brighton and investment into the local High Street gives a new owner even more fantastic prospects. You could open a café/restaurant on site or host as a small wedding venue; the opportunities are endless!
As well as the amenities available on the doorstep, our picturesque Wirral offers an abundance of reasons for people to come visit; whether they fancy a round of golf at a nearby course, a spot of shopping in Cheshire Oaks or the many walking/cycling tours; we welcome them all. The Guest House will always be at full occupancy during events like The Open Golf Championship in Hoylake and the visiting Giants. Being only 20 minutes from Liverpool by bus, car or train this attracts many people who want to visit the city but not stay in the hustle and bustle. A room at Dunsandles is a prime choice for those fancying a bet on the Grand National, concerts at the Liverpool Arena and cheering on their favourite football team; whether they’re a red or a blue – we don’t judge!
Dunsandles location and reputation appeal to a large amount of visitors who are in need of quality accommodation; one night stopovers, weekend retreats or short stays – each of which can be catered for. The diary has a lot of future bookings even into next year already!
From when you pick up the keys you are earning money! There is no capital outlay on this business; it has all been done to a high standard. Please check out our reviews on booking.com and TripAdvisor. We are the highest rating of 9.6 out of 10; and very proud of that. For us at this time in our lives France awaits, but this exciting and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is a must for an enterprising and outgoing individual, couple or family!

Happy viewing! King regards, Alan.
