The site was previously operated as a public house with adjoining camping and caravan site. The current owners have recently gained a Certificate of Lawful Use or Development enabling it to be redeveloped to provide permanent residential park homes on the site.
The new development has been attractively landscaped and currently benefits from a development of 31 bases. There are currently six units sited to include one privately owned, one utilised as the site office and four are for sale.
The property also includes:
The Dog Inn Public House, a family country pub located at the north west corner of the property. The original building is of stone construction under a pitched tiled roof and has been extended in recent times and benefits from a car park, beer garden and children’s play area. At the time of writing there was a tenant operating the public house under an informal agreement paying an agreed monthly rent, all utilities and rates.
The building extends to approximately 460sqm (4,957 sq ft).
