Wallsend Guest House and Glamping Pods boast three acres of stunning grounds and are located on the Solway Coast at the beginning of the iconic Hadrian's Wall Trail.

Now available for £1.3 million, interest in the established business is expected to be strong, with early interest being urged by the appointed agents, David Britton Estates. 

Head of Estate Agency, Donna Vogt, said: “This really is a unique and quite rare opportunity. It is not often that such an established business, which sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and also a stone’s throw from a UNESCO World Heritage Site, reaches the market.

“There has been significant investment in the site in recent years, with the addition of the glamping pods and an extensive, sympathetic renovation programme carried out on the main guest house.

“This is a ready-to-go proposition for somebody seeking a lifestyle business with significant revenue potential. We anticipate a healthy level of interest in this estate and urge early contact from anyone who would like to further explore this opportunity.”

Dating back to around 1921, the beautiful six-bedroom guest house has been sympathetically renovated, retaining charm and character and has a wealth of original features.

Offering spacious accommodation, the home is beautifully presented and has a number of flexible use reception rooms on the ground floor and caters for a number of guests wanting to enjoy the local area or as a stopover at the start/end of the iconic Hadrian's Wall National Trail.

Accessed both independently or through the garden of the guest house, the glamping pod site is currently trading with five established glamping pods.

They are all unique with open-plan living/bedroom spaces, bathrooms, and individual decked terraces with Kirami wood-fired hot tubs.

There is also a communal shower block/housekeeping unit, a large parking area, and a central lawned area, making this an idyllic holiday site for those looking for a peaceful retreat.

To the side of the glamping field is a paddock which was acquired in 2022 and is currently licensed for 16 seasonal tent pitches, aimed at seasonal hadrians wall trail backpackers and licenced from April to October.

Wallsend Guest House and Glamping Pods are located in Bowness-on-Solway which sits within the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
