INTRODUCTION

The White Swan is a lovely Yorkshire Dales town hotel with delightful facilities and a marvellous trading location. Two substantial adjoining properties were successfully combined in 2005 to create one large hotel, retaining the tremendously characterful bar and adding a modern brasserie and several new individually-designed bedrooms. Now, after 16 years of ownership, during which time the White Swan has been a managed operation, the owners have decided to take life a little easier and concentrate on their other business, giving buyers a rare opportunity to acquire this very well-known hotel with its enviable south-facing position on the ancient market square of this famous country town.

LOCATION

Middleham is famous for its castle and horse racing heritage. The castle was once the childhood home of Richard III and there is a thriving horse racing community with local gallops and several well-known yards. In addition, the surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and cycling, there are grouse moors for shooting, and the area is easily accessible from the A1 Motorway. As such, Middleham is popular with day visitors and tourists and The White Swan is an ideal base from which to enjoy the town and to explore the wonderful Yorkshire Dales.

THE PROPERTY

The White Swan is a handsome Grade 2 Listed property dominating one side of the lovely Middleham market square and comprises the original historic White Swan Inn and the adjacent former Post Office building. The two properties have combined beautifully to create one large and attractive country town hotel with accommodation arranged on 3 floors.

Through from the reception area to a lovely private dining room for up to 20 which also links with the brasserie.
