9 bedroom pub for saleThe Inn for All Seasons, Little Barrington, Burford OX18 4TN
- Business for sale
- Use class orders: A4 Drinking Establishments
The Inn for All Seasons has a long history of catering to travellers, and now caters not only for them but to the many visitors to this hugely popular region. It has all the character you would expect - lots of beams, flagstone floors, exposed stone walls, and large fireplaces. Nine good letting bedrooms help drive the profitable residential trade with the Cotswolds being a fantastic draw.
The Inn has a long frontage to the busy Oxford/Cheltenham road just a few miles to the west of Burford. It is thus well placed in the middle of the Cotswolds, where it attracts visitors virtually year round. As well as Burford, such gems as Stow on the Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Cirencester are only a short drive away, while Cheltenham is just a quick drive down the A40. All in all, then, a great location for this style of business.
The present owners' family acquired the Inn for All Seasons in 1986 with the present generation taking over in 1997. That is a fair innings, and they have now decided that it is time for a change (the owner has a growing involvement and interest in international catering not related to the Inn) and that it should be offered for sale. They are retaining the adjoining residential wing which they intend to refurbish and then sell. This is a great opportunity for new owners to bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the business which has considerable potential and already has a steadily growing turnover.
