Thelbridge Cross Inn, an 18th century coaching inn situated in the Devon hamlet of Thelbridge, has come to market through Christie & Co with a £450k price tag.
The inn has benefitted from a number of extensions and offers a restaurant with 38 covers, the Dukes function suite (pictured), which can cater for up to 200 covers, and eight ensuite bedrooms, one of which is a large bridal suite. On the first floor, there's a four-bed owner’s accommodation is provided.
Outside, there's a beer garden, which can accommodate for approximately 30 covers, as well as a large car park for 65 vehicles.
Surrounded by farmland and open countryside, Thelbridge is well connected to nearby villages and towns, including Witheridge, Crediton and Tiverton. Benefitting from loyal local trade and maintaining an excellent reputation throughout Devon for its impressive menu and quality offering, the inn presents opportunities for further growth, such as creating a new menu, using fresh produce from the site’s vegetable garden, or introducing a caravan site.
Lloyd Colin, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, commented, “Thelbridge Cross Inn is ideally suited for a first time buyer or an owner operator, having been previously owned by the same family for three decades before the current owners purchased the business in 2017.
“We continue to see strong interest across the licensed sector, with both experienced operators and first time buyers actively seeking to acquire a lifestyle business in the South West region.”
