New owner sought for South Devonshire inn

Sitting on the cusp on Dartmoor National Park near Ashburton, the Rising Sun Inn, a traditional countryside inn has come to market through Charles Darrow.

The currently closed inn comes with a freehold price tag of £350k, but there is also the option of a new commercial lease.

This destination inn dates back to around 1870. Set in extended grounds, the venue retains many period features, including wooden beams, large open fireplaces, and many original stone walls.

On the ground floor there's a 16-cover dining area. The open plan lounge bar/dining room features a bar servery, and seating for 80 covers.

The snug seats a further 12 and features a pool table, plus access to the service courtyard as well as customer toilets. The ground floor also has a large and well-equipped commercial kitchen.

Outside, the south-east facing, fully lawned beer garden contains 8 picnic tables together with feature water fountain. There’s also plenty of private parking with spaces for 25+ vehicles.

Well-suited to offering B&B accommodation to increase revenue, the property features a total of four, en-suite letting rooms. Situated on the ground floor with private entrance are a twin and a double, and on the first floor with side access are a double and family room - with double and bunk beds.

The first floor also contains the spacious owner’s accommodation - one or two of its three double bedrooms (two en-suite) could be used to create further letting rooms.

Jon Clyne, Director of agents, Charles Darrow, commentrd “Despite being closed, the property remains in good condition, with the previous tenant’s lease coming to an end.

'The property had previously traded at robust levels, with our clients happy to consider other business activities at the site, given the nature of the property.

'We are already experiencing excellent levels of interest, so prospective purchasers are asked to make themselves known”.
