  • Highly Regarded Public House
  • Parking & Gardens
  • Further Detached Cottage
  • Further Barn
  • Exciting Opportunity for Growth
  • Fixtures & Fittings Included
  • 12 Years' Trading Accounts

Situated within the PICTURESQUE area of EXMOOR is this WELL-ESTABLISHED public house, along with FIVE BEDROOMS and owners' living room to the first floor. There is also a further TWO BEDROOM COTTAGE which is currently utilised for additional BED AND BREAKFAST and HOLIDAY LETS, and a further detached stone barn which currently has planning permission to create additional ancillary accommodation to the first floor subject to the necessary consents. The pub has its own car parking area, large gardens and the current owners have a good size vegetable garden for growing their own produce as well as additional flower gardens and patio area. There is also a further beer garden. The property has been in the ownership of the current landlords for approximately twelve years and they are currently reducing their hours as they draw towards their retirement. There is an established and proven track record and the turnover could easily be improved upon with the potential of undertaking more bed and breakfast/holiday let units. The public house is well-supported by the local village and the neighbouring shoot and is situated within a convenient location just off the A396. The nearby campsite also offers additional access to further trade and the property currently has a 5 star rating with 'Trip Advisor' and is recorded as being a country pub serving excellent choice of home cooked meals and good local ales to wash them down with. The business is to be sold with primary fixtures and fittings included, although stock will be independently assessed and valued at the point of sale. The current owners believe that it would be very easy to expand and develop the business further. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a freehold pub within Exmoor National Park and much of the character and charm expected in a village pub has been retained including open fireplaces and exposed beams. There is a former skittle alley within a detached barn which is currently un-utilised, although needing some refurbishment.
