Blacksmiths Clayworth has been brought to the market with a guide price of £950,000.
The property comprises an open-plan public house and restaurant with space for 100 covers, which opens onto a large outdoor beer and dining garden terrace.
The first-floor features a bar and external balcony space used for private dining functions, weddings, and other special occasions.
It also features four AA five-star Gold awarded rooms that are housed in the separate Kings Farm Cottage, one being a large suite with kitchen facilities, together with a two-bedroom cottage.
According to Christie and Co, who is leading the sale, the site presents a “unique opportunity” for an independent, regional or corporate hospitality operator to acquire and re-open a substantial pub restaurant with diversified revenue streams.
It added there is further development potential for the commercial site, subject to obtaining the correct planning permission, while the business requires minimal internal and external investment if this is not of interest for the prospective buyer.
The current owners, Vicki and William Foers have made the decision to sell to focus on their other investment property and new business ventures outside of the sector.
Vicki said: “Blacksmiths was bought as an investment nine years ago and we are very proud of the fabulous reputation it has gained over the years.
“It will be very sad to sell, however my passion lies in design and I feel the time is now right to focus on running our other business and move onto new projects outside of the hospitality industry.”
Sam Ashton, senior business agent at Christie and Co, said: “I’m excited to bring the Blacksmiths Clayworth to the market. I’ve known the owners, Vicki and William through most of my time at Christie & Co. I know they have invested greatly into the venue over the years – no expense has been spared.
“They have created a fantastic business with multiple income streams, in a beautiful ‘destination venue’ setting, which will appeal to a range of buyers. With such huge potential, the business is crying out to be reopened and we welcome all enquiries and offers.”
