Fox Lodge in Blackpool is owned by winners of Channel 4’s Four In A Bed and has history linking back to the town’s famous rock sweets
A Blackpool guest house owned by winners of Channel 4’s Four In A Bed has hit the open market.
Fox Lodge down Hornby Road, close to the resort’s town centre, is up for sale for just less than £300,000 after being completely revamped by owners Robert and Kevin.
The duo became local celebrities after winning the Channel 4 show that puts four pairs of bed and breakfast owners against each other, with their reputations on the line by staying at each other’s establishments.
Since winning the show, the duo took on Fox Lodge and revamped it in the last two years, with the former 12 bedroom property now home to seven on-point rooms.
“With their exquisite eye for detail and their own personal beliefs in exceeding customer expectations they have delivered seven quite outstanding bedrooms which incorporate comfort levels for all customers needs,” says estate agent Kenricks Commercial.
“Including family suites, with sufficient space to accommodate full lounge style couches, the inclusion of double sized showers with heated towel rails along with vanity desks and many more special touches.
“Not surprisingly customers continue to offer their on-line reviews with scores at the very top of the expected range. Special references are continually made to the importance of parking near the Town Centre.”
The property comes with a gated car park to the rear.
Fox Lodge was built in 1895 with three original bedrooms and servant quarters in the attic.
It still boasts some original features including the stained glass entrance door; a feature wall and stained glass door outside what would have been the master bedroom; and original stained glass in the front bay windows.
