Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Ganton Greyhound is a very well located country hotel with attractive traditional inn and restaurant facilities and surprisingly spacious and flexible letting bedroom accommodation. Guests have the best of all worlds with a combination of character, space, ease of parking and large garden in which to relax in addition to easy access and proximity to North Yorkshire's beautiful market towns, and resorts, coastline, glorious walking country and great golf courses.

As a base for business people working in the region the Ganton Greyhound is very well located but it comes into its own as a leisure base and a really attractive and accessible dining venue. The hotel is an easy drive from Driffield, Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough, Malton and Pickering and there are so many places to visit including the North York Moors, the steam railway, Flamingoland, Eden Camp and famous Castle Howard. Oh and let's not forget, the outstanding Ganton Golf Club is right on the doorstop.

The current owners have had a long association with the Ganton Greyhound and it has provided them with many years of profitable trade. Now, with one of the partners retiring, the sale gives buyers who are looking for something where they can make a real difference a marvellous opportunity to acquire a large country hotel with great trading potential.
