Aspire ( Business and Company Sales Specialists ) are delighted to offer for sale this stunning freehold, licensed, bed and breakfast, potential restaurant / tea room business for sale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. The business occupies substantial 4 storey, stone-built premises located in a highly desirable trading position within the main Market Place in the centre of Hawes in Wensleydale. The building has an attractive, wide frontage with prominent signage and ample car parking facilities in the vicinity. It is surrounded by a wide variety of other independent shops and quality businesses which create a high daily footfall and much passing trade. Hawes is within the middle of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is a haven for visitors and tourists all year round -being easily accessible to Kirkby Stephen, Sedbergh, the Settle / Carlisle railway line as well as Leyburn and Ripon. The village is home to the famous Wensleydale Cheese / Creamery and is surrounded by outstanding scenery and breath-taking views. It is easily accessible to numerous award winning visitor attractions and areas of outstanding natural beauty. The town hosts an exceptionally busy and popular weekly market and is regarded as one of the ‘honeypot’ tourist attractions within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Hawes is easily approachable from both Junction 37 of the M6 Motorway in the west as well as junction 51 of the A1(M) in the east.

The Bulls Head Hotel dates back to the 1800’s and has been under the same careful ownership since 1999. During that time the property has been meticulously maintained and benefits from an exceptionally high standard of fixtures and fittings throughout. The property has 6 letting rooms and spacious, self-contained 2 - 3 bedroom private owners’ accommodation. The configuration of the building would make an ideal ground floor bar, bistro or tearoom, whilst the lower ground floor would make an ideal restaurant with the benefit of existing additional front entrances for both floors. The business is currently operated at a pace to suit the owners and trades on a bed and breakfast only basis. There remains infinite scope to increase trade further through the introduction of food and alcohol sales if desired – for many years previously it had operated as a successful restaurant and tearoom. Being in the centre of Hawes there would certainly be demand for lunches, afternoon teas and evening food. The position of the building is regarded as one of the most desirable trading locations within the town. The upper two floors benefit from stunning views of both the picturesque market place to the front and the outstanding scenery of Stags Fell to the rear. The building is full of individual character and has retained numerous unique architectural features throughout the premises.
