Christie & Co has brought to the market The Bay Horse Hotel, an Ulverston destination dining inn with nine bedrooms and views over the Cumbrian fells.
The former 17th century coaching inn features a conservatory restaurant that seats 50 diners and has cultivated a strong reputation for its food and beverage offering, with the current owner, Robert Lyons, having trained under John Tovey MBE.
Lyons has owned the hotel for the last 29 years and is now looking to sell the business and retire.
The Bay Horse Hotel is on the market for £750,000 for the freehold.
The nine bedrooms are housed within a single storey extension extending from the first floor.
Owner’s accommodation is included in the form of a detached converted barn comprising one double bedroom, a lounge with open grate fire, kitchen, bathroom and a private lawned garden.
Alistair Greenhalgh, director at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments: “The Bay Horse Hotel offers a fantastic opportunity to acquire a well established business with stunning views across the estuary, together with separate owner’s accommodation.”
“Due to its enviable location and reputation for high quality food, plus the high standard of the guest rooms, we anticipate high levels of interest from a range of potential buyers looking to acquire a profitable business with minimal starting capital required.”
