Pub With Rooms in Ribblesdale for Sale.
The Crown Hotel is situated in the beautiful Ribble Valley, on a riverbank, at the foot of Pen-y-ghent, one of the Three Peaks. One of the only hotels in the Yorkshire Dales National Park which actually sits on The Pennine Way. The famous tourist market town of Settle is a 12-minute drive away and Horton-in-Ribblesdale has its own railway station on the famous, scenic Settle to Carlisle line. Popular with hikers, bikers and cyclists and surrounded by the finest walking and mountain biking trails anywhere in England, The Crown Hotel offers affordable hotel accommodation and has everything a tired traveller needs; comfy beds, friendly hosts, traditional food and award winning cask ales. The Business: Operated by our clients for the last 14 years and only being sold now due to ill health, this country pub and hotel is offered leasehold and has a tie on beer sales alone, leaving good margins of profitability on food, wine and liquor. Pre-pandemic turnover was consistently in the £290,000 (excluding VAT) per annum and would easily surpass these levels again were it not for our clients’ health issues, preventing the owner from operating the hotel to its full potential. Wonderful lawned gardens and a large, flat riverside car park would make for wonderful marquee events or functions, or even offer additional accommodation by way of camping pods or caravan pitches. The space and potential here are unlimited for ambitious new owners wishing to add profitable facets to the existing business. The Property: A traditional, mid-village country inn property. Parking for 10 cars to the front, with additional riverside overflow car park to the side for a further 20+ cars. Entrance to lounge bar and separate snug surrounding a central two-sided bar.
