AN ESTABLISHED holiday cottage business close to the North York Moors and the east coast has been put on the market with a guide price of more than £900,000.

The business at Sands Farm Cottages, Wilton, near Pickering, has seven well-equipped holiday cottages and a three-bedroom family home as owners’ accommodation. Originally a working farm on the edge of the village, the cottages have been gradually converted from stone farm buildings, with a former Methodist chapel next to the farm having also been converted into a four-bedroom cottage. Tom Whitehead, of Savills York, said: “The property is available as going concern following the current owners’ decision to retire and provides a rare opportunity for someone to take on a fully established and successful business in a tourist hotspot.” The property is for sale guided at £925,000.
