15th century coaching inn, the Bull Hotel on Burford High Street is now on the market with Colliers International at £1.25m.
The Grade II-listed hotel has a distinctive brick-built frontage, which stands out from the rest of the High Street as it slopes toward the River Windrush.
With 18 bedrooms, including three in the former stables and garage at the rear, the Bull also features plenty of staff accommodation.
In addition, the staff accommodation could be converted in to five letting rooms – to give 22 rooms in total – subject to the usual planning permissions.
Peter Brunt, a hotels director at Colliers International, said: “With a prominent position in the middle of the High Street, The Bull offers plenty of old world charm with huge stone fireplaces in the public areas and some of the bedrooms. If you are looking for comfortable and stylish, four poster accommodation, you will not be disappointed.”
And with sales of £603,000 in the year ending 2018 under management, Brunt believes there is great scope to increase trade under new ownership.
He adds: “Our clients bought the business from Greene King in 2009 and set about a major refurbishment transforming the business in to the guest-based business you see today. But after many years in the business have decided on retirement and let new owners take this stunning property forward.”
