B&B and pub for sale near Castleford Tiger's Rugby Club

​Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell The Wheldale Hotel, a cosy Bed and Breakfast and pub located on the edge of Castleford in West Yorkshire.

Also known as The Boot Room, the 180 year old building sits directly adjacent to Castleford Tiger’s Rugby League Stadium. Over recent years, the property has undergone extensive refurbishments by the current owners, Paul and Donna Taylor, who pride themselves on providing outstanding quality and value for their visitors. 

The ten spacious and airy en suite guest rooms have been decorated in neutral tones and the Bed and Breakfast has won a number of awards, including Best Budget Accommodation and 3 stars with Late Rooms in 2017.

Located deep in the heart of Yorkshire, the property is ideally located close by to Xscape Yorkshire, a popular leisure complex and Fairburn Nature Reserve with its wonderful scenic walks and nature trails. The B&B also provides a cheaper accommodation alternative for visitors to the costly area of York.

Sam Ashton, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “The business receives strong local support and benefits from numerous trading platforms by way of the pub, restaurant and letting rooms. Being located opposite Castleford Tiger’s ground, the pub benefits from increased trade on match days, pulling in many sporting drinkers, whilst the ten guest rooms provide recently refurbished, quality accommodation in the area. There is also genuine scope for further growth by developing the catering side of the business, which a new operator could take full advantage off.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers off the asking price of £75,000.
