Dating back to the 1700s, the former coaching inn is full of character and charm and has become a popular dining venue over the years. Decorated traditionally, the business boasts a bar and lounge area with seating for circa 30 customers, a separate dining and conservatory area for circa 50 customers and an extensive outdoor area comprising a beer garden, children’s play area, extensive gardens and large car park.
The Farmers Arms benefits from a third income stream by way of four en suite letting bedrooms, which have recently undergone refurbishment. The property also includes a two bedroom owner’s accommodation on the first floor with a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
David Cash, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Newcastle office who is handling the sale comments, “The current owners have enjoyed their time at The Farmers Arms but now wish to move on to pastures new. The business has already seen an upturn following the recent reopening of the road leading in to Catterick and forward bookings are beginning to mount up. This is an excellent opportunity for an owner-operator to live on site and really drive the business forward, and we expect interest from first time buyers and new entrants, as well as experienced operators in to the market.”
Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £75,000 for the leasehold interest.
