The South West – Buying a Pub, Buying a Business By Stephen Taylor, MD - Guy Simmonds

Stephen Taylor – Managing Director Guy Simmonds

“The South West is one of the most important regions for Guy Simmonds. The region is highly desirable for our waiting purchasing clients, many of whom are seeking to leave their corporate jobs in commerce, banking or the City, and take a lifestyle business in this beautiful area. It is one of the 9th largest regions in the country, covering circa 9,200 square miles, an area of immense beauty and diversity. The region includes the affluent counties of Gloucester, City of Bristol, Wiltshire/Somerset, down to Devon and Cornwall. The plethora of tourist attractions include Stonehenge, Roman Baths, Dartmoor, Cotswolds, and arguably the most glorious coastline in the United Kingdom. Our record sale completions in this region over the past 12 months range from a low-cost entry circa £30,000 leasehold, up to a freehold business sold by us, for in excess of £3,000,000.

Both Nationally and in the South West, provided businesses are correctly valued, then we are finding the market buoyant for free-of-tie lease, freeholds and profitable Pubco leases. Already in January 2018, our national viewings from prospective purchasers are 20% up, when compared to the same period of last year. I predict that with the devaluation of sterling, the ‘staycation’ domestic holiday situation will further boom in 2018, impacting favourably on the turnovers/finances of many licensed business in popular UK tourist areas, thereby possibly increasing values and desirability even further.”
