Swanson House is a beautiful 18th century former coaching inn providing a lovely lifestyle business with potential to develop further, suiting anyone wishing to escape to the country of the northern Pennines. Formerly the property was the village post office and was renovated in 2009 to provide an exquixite two-bedroom bed and breakfast with the former shop being used as a restaurant. The owner no longer opens the restaurant to the public but it could be opened again or used as a tea room, coffee shop or other shop use. The bed and breakfast rates highly on review websites. Trading information can be supplied on request. The website is www.swansonhouse.co.uk.
