REF 7027 – Leasehold Pub & Accommodation

Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold pub and accommodation located in Burley in Wharfedale, West Yorkshire.


Our client took ownership of this stunning, 400 year old pub in 2013. It is steeped in local history and is an integral part of the community in Ilkley. The pub has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefiting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent tourist rich trading position. There is an owners accommodation on the first floor as well as an additional flat which is currently used as a holiday let via Air BnB online. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on Google, Trip Advisor and Facebook. The Hermit Inn has a website in place, but this could be developed further by a new owner.


The Hermit Inn occupies a stunning countryside position close to Burley in Wharfdale and Ilkley. The area is popular with tourists such as walkers and cyclists and is known for it’s beautiful scenery. The area is well linked by the A65 and parking is available immediately outside.


The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to the demands of our client's other business commitments being higher than anticipated, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.


The current lease is a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI) and is a twenty year lease which began in 2018 at a cost of £1,000 per week. The Brewery have requested a bond and 3 months rent upfront equating to approx £30,000.


The business operates with six part time and one full time member of staff in employment supporting our client working on a part time basis. There is also one self employed chef.


The Hermit Inn has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base.We are advised that the business has annual turnover of £300,000. Full financial information is available upon request.


The business has a rateable value of £3,640. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.


This is a long established and well known pub which occupies a superb trading position and has a strong base of regular customers in place already. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of longer opening hours and a strong marketing drive. A new online and social media presence could be beneficial to boost events such as quiz nights and other themed evenings. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
