THE number one ranked bed and breakfast in Berwick on the Trip Advisor website has been put on the market.
Offers of £410,000 are being invited for the award-winning Granary Guest House at No.11 Bridge Street.
An open day offering prospective buyers the chance to have a look around is being held on Wednesday, February 20 from 11am to 6pm.
Owner Pam Waddell, who runs the business with her husband, Dave, said: “It is with some what reluctance this sale is taking place but we feel now is the time to move on to the next event and chapter of our lives so to speak.
“Retirement looms - and stained glass art work and many other hobbies as well as a long-awaited overdue holiday!”
The Grade II listed four bedroom Georgian townhouse boasts a 5-star gold rating and its position at the top of the Trip Advisor rankings in Berwick is unrivalled. Indeed, it is ranked second in the whole of Northumberland.
Out of 189 reviews, a staggering 187 have voted it ‘excellent’. Comments include: ‘The Granary is superb. The standard is so high it would shame some of the top London hotels’.
The property, built in the 1600s, has been beautifully re-furbished with a lot of tender loving care by the present owners.
With a sympathetic eye for detail this home has had many Georgian features re-instated along with modern/bespoke quality heritage fitments. It really is an inspiration to what can be achieved with a beautiful cantilever staircase that showcases the very centre of the property a particular highlight.
The sales particulars state: ‘The property is set out over three floors offering spacious and extremely comfortable luxurious living accommodation and offers many attractive period features such as the original safe, an imposing central cantilever staircase and Georgian sash windows with original working shutters. The property was recently refurbished (2007) to the highest standard with bespoke interior design and decor.
‘The property comprises of wonderful double arch entrance into the two large reception rooms, split level kitchen (with utility), spacious master bedroom with fantastic en suite with a free standing Donatello bath and separate Roman quadrant power shower, three further wonderful double bedrooms all with en suite.
‘Externally, the property is set in a Mediterranean style courtyard with elegant mature trees and shrubs and also offers ample private parking for three cars.’
