North Wales Commercial Property of the Month: Halcyon Quest Guest House, Prestatyn

If you’ve ever dreamed of giving up city life to run your own pub and guest house by the sea, award-winning Halcyon Quest could be the perfect opportunity, set in the prosperous and popular North Wales Victorian seaside resort of Prestatyn, currently for sale with North Wales Estate Agents Peter Large.

About Prestatyn

They say for a hospitality business, location is everything – and Prestatyn is perfect, attracting guests from all over the UK and beyond since the 19th century.

The resort has three beaches which join to create a five mile expanse of sand and is popular with tourists, but Prestatyn has plenty of history, too.  The town is at the northern end of the Offa’s Dyke Path, although not on Offa’s Dyke itself. It also marks the eastern end of the North Wales Path, a long-distance coastal route to Bangor, and the western end of the Clwydian Way. Other attractions include the remains of Roman baths and the nearby Neolithic mound, the Gop.


This substantial guest house and bar occupies a prominent location close to the Offa’s Dyke walk and is also only a short walk from Prestatyn’s high street and main shopping area.  The high street offers lots of individual local shops, a pretty church, pleasant coffee shops and a tucked-away retail park with a Tesco supermarket as well as popular retail shops.

The Guest House occupies a prominent frontage onto the well known Gronant Road and the pretty nine letting rooms have proved popular over the 50 years the business has been established.

As the name suggests Halcyon Quest is a resting place and has been the winner of numerous awards with the campaign for Real Ale and was the winner in 2014 for the best local pub of the year. It offers versatile accommodation with ample parking and is currently run as a bed and breakfast with the opportunity for the discerning buyer to take on further food sales as required.

The business is offered with fixtures and fittings throughout plus stock at valuation on the day of completion of sale. Audited trading accounts are available by appointment with the Selling Agents at Prestatyn Office. Viewing is strictly by appointment.

The agents are inviting offers around £550,000.  You can view full property details here:
