Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Prominently situated on the bustling main street of Hawes, Cockett's has a marvellous trading location and offers an excellent variety of good class letting bedroom accommodation, attractive public rooms including a delightful lounge with open fire, a front flagged courtyard trading area and top quality accommodation for owners. The property is a lovely blend of the old and the new, the main building dating back centuries and now with modern extensions providing some superior new bedrooms, excellent modern kitchen facilities and a two storey house for owners which provides an exceptionally good private home.

Located in the tremendously popular Yorkshire Dales National Park midway between the M6 Motorway to the west and the A1 to the east, Hawes is a busy tourist town. The Pennine Way, Dales Cycle Way and Herriot's Way all pass through the town which is a first class base for tourers, walkers and cyclists and those who just want to spend a little time browsing the shops and visiting the Dales Museum and Wensleydale Cheese Factory.

The owners acquired Cockett's in 2002 and have enjoyed operating the business in a manner to suit their own lifestyle requirements running up to this retirement sale, trading at a comfortable level and without exploiting fully the potential of this very well located hotel and restaurant. At the same time, they have not stood still, continually reinvesting income and embarking on capital projects such that the hotel now ticks all the boxes for buyers looking for good facilities and a nice home and strong sales with scope to increase.

THE PROPERTY

Cockett's is a stone built Grade II Listed property dating back to the 17th century with accommodation arranged on ground and first floors.

PUBLIC AREAS

Entrance from the front via a lobby leading into a cosy reception lounge bar with ornate solid fuel stove, bar counter and servery behind. On the left is the restaurant, usually laid for 26 diners and with direct access from the kitchen area. To the right is a delightful spacious front lounge with open fire. Through to the rear are modern ladies and gents cloakroom facilities.

LETTING BEDROOMS

11 letting bedrooms to sleep 22 (9 double or twin, 1 family and 1 single). All bedrooms have en suite facilities, 5 with bathroom/wc and shower over the bath and 6 with shower room/wc. All bedrooms have central heating, radio alarm, hospitality tray, and television.
