Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Sands At Bleak House is a substantial detached property occupying a predominant roadside location surrounded by attractive woodland. The property retains many of its original character features and has been extended sympathetically over time to provide 88 internal covers, 8 letting rooms, and 50 external covers with parking for 45 vehicles.

The site is approximately 0.405 Hectares (0.55 acres). Gross Internal Area: 492.5 sq m.

The business has been under the same ownership since 2005 during which time it had built up a strong reputation for good food and drink. The private dining/ function room has always been popular with weddings and local businesses booking meetings as it can be separated off from the main bar area. The business closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and has since not reopened as the current owners have chosen not to do so.
