17th century North Wales inn brought to the market through Christie & Co
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market the Hawk & Buckle Inn, an impressive 17th century semi-rural inn, situated in the village of Llannefydd on the north coast of Wales.
The distinctive two storey former coaching inn has been extended over recent years to incorporate additional guest accommodation and now comprises eight well-appointed en suite letting bedrooms across the ground and first floors. The public areas are set across the ground floor with a large open-plan lounge bar accommodating 60 covers, accessed through the entrance porch. The lounge benefits from period features including traditional beamed ceilings and a characterful inglenook fireplace complete with newly-fitted log burner. The adjoining restaurant and breakfast room seats an additional 30 covers within a contemporary space featuring slate tiled floors and a unique wall mosaic.
Externally, there is a well-positioned beer garden for 30 guests, providing far reaching panoramic views across the North Wales coastline and the Clwydian Range mountains. Additionally, there is private parking for eight vehicles and the property also includes three bedroom owner’s accommodation, ideal for an owner-operator or potential purchasers wishing to provide lodging for an on-site manager.
The current owners, Gareth and Siwan White have run the business for just over five years and have decided to sell in order to concentrate on their other business interests. They comment, “We have enjoyed running the Hawk for the last five years but have recently taken on full managerial responsibility for the family farm and feel that we cannot possibly do justice to both businesses.”
Keith Stringer, Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “The Hawk & Buckle Inn is an incredibly characterful public house that provides potential purchasers seeking a more laid-back pace of life with a turnkey lifestyle business. There is a significant opportunity to grow turnover through increasing the opening hours, which are currently limited. With this in mind, we expect significant interest from both local buyers as well as those wishing to relocate.”
The Hawk & Buckle Inn has been brought to the market through Christie & Co at an asking price of £350,000 for the freehold interest.
