The Malthouse is an imposing 17th Century detached property, located in an elevated position within the heart of Alton village occupying approximately one acre of gardens and grounds, ideally situated within close proximity to many local tourist attractions such as Alton Towers Theme Park and The Peak District National Park.

This well established guest house generates a sound turnover just under the VAT threshold generating a high level of adjusted profitability along with an attractive lifestyle and five star Trip Advisor rating. Income is currently generated from nine well-presented guest rooms, supported by spacious and functional facilities, which include three resident reception rooms full of character and charm with use of a private car park and manicured gardens which boast views out over the surrounding countryside.

This unique opportunity consists of three primary buildings which in total comprise eleven bedrooms and eleven bathrooms offering a tremendous amount of versatility and scope to incorporate more bedrooms and even a shop if so required.

The vendors have brought this most desirable business and family home to the market due to their desire to retire and represents an all too rare opportunity in many respects.

The Malthouse - Dating back to the late 17th Century the Malthouse with attached granary forms the main building, providing a wealth of internal accommodation not immediately apparent from the humble exterior. The current owners have chosen to utilise this building to accommodate four of the nine guest bedrooms in addition to their own accommodation which is arranged in the granary rising up to the top floor of the main house providing more than ample space for an extended family. Hidden beneath the front garden, a fascinating labyrinth of barrel vaulted cellars with the remains of the original furnace, stone tanks and grain chutes which once produced malt for many local estates and public houses. The malting business ceased trading in 1888 due to the Industrial Revolution and remained redundant until the 1940's when it became the village air raid shelter. In 2005 the English Heritage spent six months and in excess of £150,000 stabilising and restoring what we see here today – which is nothing short of breath-taking.
