This impressive landmark detached building with origins reputed to date back to 1644 is an attractive and traditional coaching inn and is well presented throughout having been the subject of much sympathetic upgrade, improvement and development by our clients during their 19 years of ownership. The property has been sympathetically extended and improved throughout by our clients and the property benefits from 7 letting bedrooms all with private facilities, a 3 bedroom family letting unit and a most impressive 4 double bedroom owners house with its own private garden. This deceptively spacious character property briefly comprises:- Main Bar and Dining Area (48), Restaurant/Breakfast Room (30), well equipped Commercial Catering Kitchen with ancillary facilities, 7 Letting Bedrooms all with private facilities (5 En-Suite), a 3 Bedroom Family Letting Suite with Bathroom, Separate 4 Double Bedroom Family Sized Owners House with Sitting Room, Dining Room and its own Private Garden Area. Externally, the property benefits from a Private Customer Car Park Area to the front and rear for approximately 30 vehicles, 5 Caravan/Motorhome Hardstandings with electrical hookups, Covered Patio Terrace (20), Beer Garden with views over The Blackdown Hills (20 plus), and Garage and useful outbuildings.
The business is located in a prominent landmark trading position on the A38, which is a busy tourist and commuter route into and out of the Westcountry, approximately 3 miles north of Junction 27 of the M5 motorway. The business is therefore conveniently placed to access the surrounding unspoilt Devonshire countryside with Exmoor National Park, the Brendon Hills, Quantocks Hills and Blackdown Hills which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all being close by.
A major retail and leisure development is planned for Junction 27 of the M5 and it is anticipated that this will be beneficial to the business.
