LANDMARK COUNTRY INN in a prominent location with SPECTACULAR OPEN VIEWS, on a MAIN 'A' ROAD, with substantial four section lounge bar and dining room, large L-shaped FUNCTION ROOM with planning permission to convert to seven en-suite bedrooms. Currently with EIGHT EN-SUITE LETTING BEDROOMS at first and second floor level. Former stables converted into FOUR SEPARATE APARTMENTS, large trade gardens and EXTENSIVE PARKING. An ESTABLISHED BUSINESS with excellent potential and scope for growth and currently run under management.

Location - The Snake Pass Inn is a renowned Country Inn that resides in the glorious Derbyshire Peak District National Park alongside the Snake Pass Road (A57) to which gave its name. The building was constructed in the 1800's by the Duke of Devonshire at the time that Thomas Telford engineered the pass to carry the A57 to link the cities of Manchester and Sheffield. Both the Inn and the road take their name from the Dukes Family Coat of Arms which project a snake in the form of a knot. Unfortunately, the emblem was removed from the property in the 1920's but the name remains strong.

The property holds a strategic location at the side of the main A57 within the busy National Park that attracts a huge amount of visitors throughout the year, especially popular with daytrippers. Also, outdoor sports enthusiasts, being the mecca for walkers, motor cyclists and cyclists and within 30 minutes drive from the major residential populations of both Manchester and Sheffield.

The Snake Pass Inn is a substantial property that appears to be constructed in the main of stone with part rendered and colour washed elevations under pitched slate tiled roofs to the main with later extensions to the rear. It sits within a large site which provides ample parking and gardens and also has the benefit of a former stable block that has been converted to offer extra letting accommodation. The property currently offers eight letting bedrooms within the main property and a further four apartments within the stable block, but there is also planning passed to convert half of the function suite in to seven en-suite letting bedrooms which would undoubtedly prove a better use of the space than its current guise.

Our clients have owned the business for several years however, it is not their primary income and therefore it is operated under management. It has become apparent to the them that the business would benefit hugely from more experienced owners within the hotel and licensed trade whether it being an operator couple/family or small corporate outfit.

The Business - The business trades as a country inn to the large number of visitors to the Peak District National Park throughout the year along with an element of local trade. It is especially popular with people taking a drive out from the nearby major urban areas of Greater Manchester and Sheffield, both of which can be reached within 30 minutes drive. Our clients are not from a licensed specialist background and therefore the business is run under management and the accounts for the ending July 2016 are expected to show net sales of some £335,000 working on a gross profit of approximately 65%. The trade is split approximately 26% wet, 42% food and 32% accommodation. This achieved under management.
