Historic property dating back to c.1640. Excellent trading location in popular Dumfriesshire Village. On the market for first time since 2007. Charming property with many original features. 5 ensuite letting bedrooms. Characterful Public Bar with adjacent “Games Room” Bright and airy restaurant. 3 Bedroomed Chalet – ideal for owner/letting accommodation. Spacious Beer Garden. An excellent opportunity for couple or family team. Currently closed – capable of reopening quickly.

Moniaive is a tranquil and very well presented village located approximately 16 miles north west of Dumfries.

Dumfries is the largest town in South West Scotland and the administrative centre for the Dumfries & Galloway region. The village is located on the A702, close to the A76 (Ayr to Dumfries Road) and within a 30 minute drive of the M74 motorway, providing easy access to both Glasgow and Carlisle.

Moniaive is within easy access of the world-class 7stanes mountain biking centres, including the Galloway Forest Park – the first Dark Sky Park in the UK – which is also home to other outdoor pursuits, watersports and stunning scenery. Amenities in the village include: a village shop (with post office), primary school and garage. The premises enjoy a prominent trading position in the heart of the village, well placed to serve the local community and passing trade.

The village is also renowned on the live music circuit with an annual folk festival held in May and various other festivals throughout the year. Live musicians regularly play in the bar and the village’s established music links are definitely a draw to the area.

Thought to have originally been built as a Coaching Inn, circa 1640, the George Hotel is steeped in history and reputedly one of the oldest licensed premises in Scotland. The original property is stone built, lying under a pitch and slate roof, and over the years the property has been extended at the rear as well as the side.

The business has been in our clients families’ hands since 2007 and has traded successfully as a thriving village hotel acting as an important meeting point for village and countryside life in this superb part of Dumfriesshire.

The business closed late September 2020 due to a sudden family bereavement but provides an excellent opportunity for a hands on operator, couple or family team to take on an historic business with the potential to trade vigorously in wet, food, and coffee shop, letting room and function sales.

The business offers true potential for new owners to start trading immediately with a multi range of turnover strands and profit centres for the business. Historically the business has traded well from all these sectors and it will be up to new owner to harness the income streams going forward.
