A one-off opportunity to run your own Hostel!

An opportunity to run a new Hostel in Anstruther, Fife, an idyllic coastal village just 15 minutes from St Andrews.

We get frequent enquiries from people who are attracted by the lifestyle choice of running a Hostel, but buying a Hostel is a major financial commitment. However, for those who would like to learn the ropes, without the financial commitment of purchase, here is the chance to dip your toe in the water - by leasing a Hostel in one of the most attractive seaside villages in Scotland. The Murray Hostel has 30 bedspaces and is on offer at a rental of £1000 per month plus VAT.

The Murray Hostel is centrally located in the picturesque "East Neuk" seaside town of Anstruther in Fife. The three storey C-listed building, which was built in 1908, overlooks the harbour and is close to the Fife Coastal Path which attracts around 500,000 visitors a year. 

Anstruther is a very popular destination for visitors and the Hostel accommodation would be attractive to families, groups and individual travellers.

The building has been sensitively converted to a very high standard, keeping many of the original features, to provide 30 bedspaces in 7 bedrooms with adjacent toilets and shower rooms. 

Bedrooms are on the first and second floors with spectacular sea views, apart from a ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom for guests with disabilities.

On each of the first and second floors there are 2 bedrooms to sleep 4 guests, and 1 bedroom to sleep 6 guests with adjacent 2 toilets and 2 shower rooms. The second floor has an additional separate bathroom which could be private to one of the rooms

The ground floor kitchen and dining room look out over the harbour; this area is fully

accessible. The kitchen is well kitted out, including oven and hob.

The hostel is centrally heated, with Wifi.
Guests also have the use of a large common room with TV point and a laundry room. There is a separate managers office.

The Murray Library Trust is a registered charity and landlord of the Hostel. The Hostel is offered as a lease for a business opportunity at £12,000 + VAT per annum with proposals from interested parties to be received by the 30th November 2015. 

The Trust suggests that viewing is highly recommended with the opportunity for prospective operators to put their own stamp on the property and the business.
