Business description

Established over 30 years, Skirfare Barn Bunkbarn has an enviable reputation for providing the larger group with a private, exclusive location to enjoy the Yorkshire Dales. This business is located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales between the beautiful villages of Grassington and Kettlewell yet it is just 1 hours drive from Leeds, Bradford, Ripon, Harrogate, Burnley and 20 minutes from the town of Skipton.

Sat underneath the stunning backdrop of the famous Kilnsey Crag the barn provides the owner with a £55-£60k gross income, and with low operating costs leaves a 75-80% net profit of £42k+.
Current sales are based on a current occupancy rate of 50% thus providing a considerable potential to grow to £80-100k with the right owner.

The barn facilities have been improved upon considerably in the last three years by the current owners to now provide a high-quality business that is operated entirely remotely with no requirement for management to be on site for guests. The current owners spend no more than 6 hours a week on site, providing the perfect lifestyle business that is unrivalled in the accommodation industry.

The bunk barn accommodation consists of a spacious stone-flagged entrance hall, a cosy, oak beamed sitting/dining room with exposed stone walls, a new fully fitted kitchen area with modern appliances, separate Ladies and Mens washrooms with toilets (5 total) and 3 individual showers, and a Drying/Cloakroom.

The common room contains a huge 15+ seater sofa with large cushions to relax in, additional individual chairs provide total seating for 20. A custom built specifically for us large oak dining table to comfortably seat all 20 guests without having to worry about table legs getting in the way!

The 5 bedrooms sleep a total of 20 people consisting of 2 twin bedded rooms, plus 2 rooms sleeping 4 people and a room sleeping 8. All bedrooms provide a bed with a clean pillow, pillowcase and fitted sheet. Please bring your own sleeping bag or quilts and covers (spare blankets are provided).

A brand new website was launched recently (, complete with card payment facilities, extensive google integration and a virtual tour provides a great platform for finding bookings that add to other selective, targeted advertising solutions.
Sitting on a one-acre site, the barn consists of 5 bedrooms, large lounge/diner, fully equipped kitchen. Three bathrooms, drying room and boiler-room.
Outside is a large patio and garden, complete with fully installed BBQ area. Car parking for 12 and external storage container.

The business is also listed on Airbnb with outstanding customer reviews.

Skirfare Barn is truly a unique opportunity to purchase a business offering an existing 10%+ return, whilst offering considerable opportunities for growth, all for less than one days work a week! There are no staff with the business with all operations done by the current owners, however even this small amount of work could be removed by utilising a cleaning company.
