Creagan House is an attractive 2 storey restaurant with rooms located to the north of Strathyre village on the A84 between Callander and Balquhidder. Dating from the 17th century, the original farmhouse has been sympathetically restored and modernised and is very well presented both internally and externally. The property has potential to be reverted back into a residential property; the charming country house would be ideally suited for those seeking a home in a rural area that is within easy reach of numerous key towns and cities.
There are a total of 6 bedrooms (all en suite), 5 of which are currently used as letting accommodation. The main entrance leads to a reception hallway giving access to the main residents lounge and the restaurant. In summary, the accommodation is as follows:
Restaurant Area: A baronial-style room with a stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling. There are covers for up to 30 people.
Residents Lounges: The main lounge is a characterful room with an exposed stone wall and beamed ceiling. It has leather sofas and an antique dresser that acts as the bar. Off from the main residents lounge is a smaller lounge in a similar style.
Service Areas: The service areas provide a high quality commercial kitchen and storage rooms all located on the first floor.
Ground Floor Accommodation: One twin-bedded en suite bedroom with wheelchair access. There is also owners accommodation situated at the rear of the property that comprises a large double bedroom (en suite) and an office area.
First Floor Accommodation: Four en suite bedrooms which are used for letting. These consists of two double-bedded rooms, a four-poster double bedroom and a king size room.
There are well maintained grounds with seating for guests. There is also a guest car park and various outbuildings including a garage and a kennel. The total site area extends to approximately 0.7 acres.
The business is trading profitably with great scope to increase turnover. Accounts are available to interested parties after viewing.
The current proprietors have owned the renowned business for over 28 years and have won numerous awards. These include 5 star gold awards from the AA and Visit Scotland as well as earning 2 AA rosettes each year since 1998. The restaurant with rooms has consistently received strong feedback from both reviewers and customers; the AA inspector has described it as the the epitome of a small Scottish hotel.�'�'
The business is currently run by a husband and wife team with the assistance of two part-time staff and operates five days a week, closing on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the year. Due to the owner�'s near-retirement, the business has reduced its trading days, particularly during winter months. There is significant potential for new owners to increase trade considerably.
