Local operator buys Cambridge guesthouse

A local operator has snapped up the Dykelands Guest House in the university town of Cambridge.

The detached, 1930s building is sited in Mowbray Road between the town centre and the Addenbrooke's Hospital.

A highly-profitable business that has traded as a B&B for 25 years, Dykelands offers nine bedrooms (seven en-suite), a 16-seat breakfast room, a residents' lounge, and a rear garden.

Owners' accommodation on the ground floor includes three bedrooms, a living room and a conservatory.

It has a three-star rating from national tourist body VisitBritain.

The Norwich office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £675,000 on behalf of Paul and Alison Tweddell, who have emigrated to Australia after running the B&B for 14 years.
