Charming 16th century village inn comes to market

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed to sell the Gait Inn, a lovely 16th Century pub in the heart of the East Yorkshire village of Millington.

Millington is a pretty, quaint village located amid the Yorkshire Wolds Way, eighteen miles from York and on the Way of the Roses cycle route.  Set in a scene of picturesque beauty; the pub has spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and holds an extensive collection of local photographs, press cuttings and a famous ceiling map of Yorkshire on display for diners to marvel at.

The Gait Inn was acquired in 2005 by current owners, Helen and Stuart Stephenson, when Stuart decided to swap farming for pulling pints. The Gait Inn was Helen’s and Stuart’s local pub, and when they heard that the previous owner was ready to hang up his boots they did not hesitate; making an offer for the pub the very next day. The pub never made it to the market. Since then they have both worked tirelessly to make the pub a part of the village community life. The property oozes both character and warmth, with a friendly and informal atmosphere.

The pub comes with a well –tended beer garden and a four-bed owner’s accommodation, which has the potential to be turned in to further letting accommodation subject to obtaining relevant planning permission.

David Cash, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “Having owned and successfully run The Gait Inn for more than 12 years now, Helen and Stuart are ready for a new challenge and are looking to move on to pastures new, leaving an excellent opportunity for either a first time buyer or an experienced operator to follow on from where they will leave off.”

Christie & Co is seeking a freehold asking price of £699,950.
