The Maypole Inn in Skipton has been brought to the market through Christie & Co, with an asking price of £675k.
Located in Skipton, the pub is situated in an area ideal for visitors to both the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Maypole Inn is owned by John and Angela Davis, who ran the popular Craven Heifer for 15 years prior to taking over. They have a reputation for high quality food throughout the Yorkshire Dales and pride themselves on having great ales, wines and a great value food offering, whilst working hard to provide an excellent level of service.
The couple said, “Having spent decades in the licensed and hospitality industry, we have thoroughly enjoyed working in such a beautiful environment.
'Now we’re approaching retirement, we feel it an appropriate time to sell the inn and allow the next owner to focus properly on driving business further for the bar, restaurant and popular letting rooms, as well as developing the barn to take advantage of wedding receptions, functions and events potential.”
The open plan pub separate dining restaurant and a breakfast room which can be used for functions. Three wood burning fires throughout the space create a cosy atmosphere. On the first floor are five en suite letting rooms, all decorated to a high standard following significant investment from the owners.
The sale of The Maypole Inn provides a great opportunity for an independent chef, expanding regional operator or corporate pub company looking to acquire a well established and reputable 16th Century coaching inn, which has the potential to increase trade in all areas.
Sam Ashton, Business Agent at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and said, “Having seen a real demand for coaching inns around North Yorkshire throughout 2019, I am excited to introduce this great opportunity to the market.
'The business benefits from the popular three-way income stream of free of tie drinks, a strong food offering and quality letting rooms. I look forward to engaging with prospective buyers as the vendors.”
