Property description

Tenure: Leasehold


The Squirrel Inn is a substantial detached property with eight letting rooms set in approximately two acres. The property comprises 85 internal covers, five-bedroom owner's/manager's accommodation and parking for 30 cars.

The business has a strong reputation for locally sourced food and a diverse selection of real ales from across the country. The letting rooms have been created from refurbished 16th-century cottages with which boast beautiful character features. The outside dining areas include a covered veranda, bandstand and tiered gardens with children's play area.

Having owned the pub since 2011 the current owners are looking to semi-retire and look after elderly parents.
