Wheal Tor, boasting ‘best views in county’ on market with Colliers international
Boasting some of the best views in all Cornwall and a range of accommodation to suit every budget, Wheal Tor Hotel near Liskeard is on the market with global real estate advisor Colliers International.
The highest inn in Cornwall sits in a secluded pine copse 996 ft above sea level on Caradon Hill and overlooks Bodmin Moor. The stunning hilltop inn is on the market at £790,000 for the freehold.
There are eight letting rooms some of which have king size or four poster beds. There is one room available for dog owners – alongside eight glamping pods, two lodges, function room, bar and restaurant.
There is a large first floor flat with two double bedrooms, living area and kitchenette for the owners alongside extensive grounds amounting to 2.5 acres.
Ed Jefferson from Colliers International’s hotels agency team said the inn offered diverse revenue streams from letting rooms to glamping in ‘Hobbit Houses’.
“Wheal Tor draws year-round trade for holidaymakers, walkers and locals. The glamping pods – called Hobbit Houses – offer a double bed, single bed and a camp bed and are ideal for family adventure holidays without all the inconveniences of a tent.”
Wheal Tor was home to a Captain Seccombe who managed the prosperous East Caradon copper and tin mine and guests can look out of the original window from which the miners were paid.
“Our clients report the hotel’s sales average £210,000 net of VAT pa.”
A fantastic holiday cottage which is yet to come online is available under separate negotiation with an asking price of £600,000. Net revenue from the cottage is forecast to be £55,000 pa.
“Hotels catering for such a wide range of family holidays are rare indeed. Wheal Tor is a well-established business offering a unique range of experiences.”
The property is situated in the heart of Cornwall close to Bodmin Moor and the main A30, A38 and A388. Launceston is 11 miles away, Plymouth 21 and Exeter 52 miles.
