The freehold for the The Star Inn, a village pub, restaurant and B&B in the Yorkshire Wolds village of Weaverthorpe near Malton in North Yorkshire, has been brought to the property market for £550,000.
The pub was originally built in the early 1800s and the whole building has been extensively refurbished with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
As well as the five en-suite letting rooms, there is a bar and restaurant and two bedroom owner’s accommodation. Externally there is a car park, beer garden and a double garage which has planning consent for conversion into further letting accommodation.
The village of Weaverthorpe is close to many Yorkshire tourist attractions as well as the east coast seaside resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey.
Current owners, Julien and Rachel Martel have decided to sell the business in order to pursue other business interests, and said: “We were attracted to Weaverthorpe for its beauty and the great clientele from the surrounding area. We believe we have renovated the pub and business to a high standard and its appreciated by all that visit. We are sorry to be leaving but believe we are handing over a superb business.”
Matthew Hendry, business agent at Christie and Co, who is handling the sale, added: “I can honestly say that The Star Inn is one of the most attractive pubs with rooms that I have seen. Mr and Mrs Martel have invested heavily to make the pub stand out from the rest, and it does. Anyone who visits the business is likely to fall in love with it straight away and there is scope to increase trade by extending the current opening hours.”
