Changing of the guard in Crieff

New owners at the helm of Perthshire guest house

Leven House
The hotel has nine en suite letting rooms as well as three-bedroom owner’s accommodation.

NEW owners are in place at Leven House in Crieff, bringing an end to eight decades of ownership by the same family.

Described as a beautiful guest house which provides “unrivalled” bed and breakfast service by selling agent Bruce & Co, the Victorian property had been run by previous owner, Mr Hoskins, who wished to retire, for the past 43 years and was in his family for more than 80 years.

Leven House is a beautiful guest house which provides unrivalled bed and breakfast.

During that time, the business is said to have built up a high turnover and currently holds a three-star rating from VisitScotland.

And Bruce & Co said that Leven House offers new owners, Nicola and Fraser Duncan, “unparalleled” potential to expand and increase turnover further.

Originally formed of two separate houses, the Perthshire guest house comprises nine en suite letting rooms, a large dining room with space for up to 36 covers, a residents’ lounge and a commercial kitchen.

Additionally, owner’s accommodation is provided via a sitting room on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the second floor, as well as a private bathroom.

Mike Firoozi, lead negotiator of the sale at Bruce & Co, said: “Mr Hoskins was fantastic to work with. He was very co-operative with us and was helping get paperwork together and moving the deal along. I hope he enjoys his retirement, as it is well deserved.”

Leven House was sold from a guide price of £379,995 for the freehold.
