The well-known inn is an ideal base for exploring all that the stunning Yorkshire Coast and countryside has to offer, attracting guests year round visiting sites, such as the National Park the nearby historic city of York and seaside town of Whitby.

Built in 1776, the stunning Georgian inn comprises a restaurant, private dining room, bar and snug alongside five well-appointed en suite letting rooms with the potential to introduce a sixth. Following recent refurbishments and restorations by current owners, Ian and Carol Rae, each room is now individually designed to reflect the remarkable history of this Grade II Listed Inn. The property also benefits from an enclosed beer garden and large customer car park in addition to a two bedroom flat at first floor level, which is currently utilised as owner’s accommodation.

David Cash, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale comments, “The Coachman Inn provides an opportunity for the new owner to take over a business which has developed significantly under the management of the existing owners, whilst still having great potential for further growth, given its enviable location. Mr and Mrs Rae are seeking to retire after a long and enjoyable career in the licensed and hospitality industry.

“We expect The Coachman Inn will attract interest from lifestyle operators looking to live and work in this fantastic location, or existing operators who have another business or businesses nearby and see The Coachman as a great addition to their existing portfolio.”

The Coachman Inn is available through Christie & Co at an asking price of £580,000.
