Seven Stars Inn brought to the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market Seven Stars Inn, a traditional inn located within the heart of South Tawton, a quaint village on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Devon.

Dating back to the 17th century, the property maintains many of its original features, including wooden beams and exposed stone walls. The pub comprises a lounge bar and restaurant, accommodating for over 60 covers throughout, as well as a patio beer garden which provides seating for a further 20 covers. Above the pub, four bedroom owner’s accommodation is located across the entire first floor.

Currently closed, Seven Stars Inn presents new owners with the opportunity to reopen the only pub in the village and put their own stamp on the business. Situated on the Tarka Trail, popular with walkers and outdoor enthusiasts exploring the Devon countryside, the pub has historically benefitted from a loyal following and increased trade during the summer months.

Having previously operated the pub himself, current owner, William Whitbread has more recently leased the business to a number of tenants. Mr Whitbread comments, “The Seven Stars is a particularly handsome building in the centre of a picture-postcard village. With a bit of TLC, the pub could easily regain its place as the hub of this Dartmoor community.”

Lloyd Colin, Business Agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “I recently spoke to a local resident who said that it would be great to see the pub reopen so that the community will once again have a meeting place. Seven Stars Inn presents new owners with the perfect opportunity to reopen the village pub and return it to its former glory, and its location in the countryside near Dartmoor provides the perfect opportunity to capture passing trade. We expect to attract significant interest from a variety of buyers – this opportunity is not to be missed!”

The Seven Stars Inn is on the market at a guide price of £250,000 for the freehold interest.
