AJF Commercial are pleased to welcome to the market this highly popular, well established and extremely busy freehold restaurant and country pub with 5 bedroom living accommodation, located in the stunning Cumbrian Lake District.
This delightful property surrounded by beautiful countryside is perfectly located in the heart of the village of Newton in Furness, in the southern quarters of the Cumbrian Lake District.
The business is surrounded by residential housing and is just a short drive away from the beautiful village of Dalton, a historic market town hosting a range of complimentary shops, businesses and residential housing.
Just a few minutes’ drive north is the ever popular town of Ulverston, the birth place of the legendary Stan Laurel and the busy town of Barrow in Furness is just a short drive south, attracting visitors and tourists throughout the year.
The main A590 road which links the southern lake district towns from the M6 motorway, is also just a short drive away.
The Village Inn has been in the careful hands of our owners for the past 33 years with a history dating back to the mid 1800’s when established.
The business thrives off much regular and passing trade and is well known in the area and far afield for the reputation for their outstanding quality of home cooked food and draught beers.
There are excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and our client also has a good online presence via social media and a fully working website in place with a range of menus, photographs, opening times and information for visiting customers.
The business currently opens during the evenings providing an excellent turnover. However, there is further potential for the new owner to open at lunchtimes which would certainly increase takings.
Our client also caters for Weddings, Funerals, Birthdays and Christening parties.
