FOR SALE AS A GOING CONCERN
A highly successful pub with rooms in a picturesque village only 1.5 miles from the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis

The Talbot Arms is prominently situated in the pretty East Devon village of Uplyme and is very much at the heart of the community.

It is situated on one of the main approaches to Lyme Regis (from the A35 Coast Road) and so also benefits from an excellent passing trade. Lyme is only about 1.5 miles away and adjacent is a level footpath which leads to the town alongside the tiny River Lym - a very pleasant 20 minute walk.

The building (most of which dates back to around 1930 with earlier origins) has been well cared for by the present owners and it offers extensive accommodation including 2 bar/restaurant areas, a lower ground floor games/family room and a secluded beer garden. In about 2009 a barn in the rear courtyard was converted to 5 quality ensuite letting bedrooms which provides a significant additional income.

On the first floor is very extensive 5 Bedroomed owners' accommodation which could readily incorporate further Bed and Breakfast rooms.

Uplyme enjoys a thriving local community with facilities including a highly regarded primary school, post office and stores at the petrol station, village hall, cricket and football clubs, tennis courts, parish church and, of course, 'The Talbot Arms'.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset ‘Jurassic Coast’ awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.

The Business - The present owners took over The Talbot Arms about 15 years ago and very quickly established themselves (and the pub) as an integral part of village life. They have an excellent reputation for good food (including an ever popular Sunday carvery), wine and beers. It is a free house with no ties.

The creation of 5 letting rooms has also greatly boosted income. It is being offered for sale fully equipped (apart from personal items).
