[L]eisure property specialist Fleurets is instructed by Colin and Jill Ramsay to sell the String of Horses Inn & Restaurant, near Heads Nook in Cumbria.
The historic country inn dates back to 1659, and has welcomed visitors for over 350 years. The inn gets its name from its original use, as travelling merchants would stop to rest as well as harness a new string of horses to the stagecoach.
Internally, the property retains its history throughout, featuring oak beams and panelling as well as open fires and brassware. Alongside a traditional bar and dining facilities, the premises also possesses 11 en suite letting rooms as well as 3 bedroom owner’s accommodation.
Lesley Watmough from Fleurets is marketing the premises and commented: “Colin Ramsay purchased the business 9 years ago and has since chosen to run the site as a lifestyle business, closing throughout January and every Monday. He also does not open at lunchtimes, and the business operates between 6pm–11pm Tuesday to Sunday. Despite this, our client has been growing the turnover steadily to show figures for the last 3 years of £244k, £243k & £255k.”
The String of Horses if offered on a freehold tenure and available off a guide price of £695,000.
