The Swan Inn - Merriot, Somerset - FOR SALE

The Swan Inn - Merriot, Somerset - FOR SALE - 14th December 2016

Grade II Listed Character Village Inn, near Crewkerne, Somerset

The Swan Inn is a deceptively spacious and extremely well presented Grade II listed character village freehouse which has been sympathetically refurbished and modernised over the past 5 years to an exceptionally high standard throughout. The Inn is situated in the heart of the attractive Somerset village of Merriott close to the Somerset/Dorset border. Merriott is a relatively large village with a good range of local amenities situated about two miles north of the larger town of Crewkerne. Communication and transport links to the area are excellent, the A303 main London to South West road lies around 4 miles to the north and Junction 25 of the M5 is within easy reach at Taunton. This part of South Somerset is rightly regarded as some of the finest countryside in the South West, and the undulating hills and valleys give way to the wilder and more dramatic scenery of West Dorset and the coast to the south.

The extremely well appointed property comprises of a main bar area, dining room, skittle alley, and commercial catering kitchen. Additionally there are three high quality en-suite letting bedrooms, superior and most impressive family sized three bedroom owners accommodation with sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and raised decked roof terrace area. Externally, the property benefits from a large lawned trade garden seating 50+, further terrace seating, and several outbuildings.

The Swan Inn is traded as a village pub with letting bedrooms. Having been the subject of fastidious renovation and improvement by our clients during their 5 years of ownership, unfortunately, the inn closed in September 2016 due to ill health. Our clients advise that there is potential to develop all aspects of the trade still further, by developing the food and beverage offering and increasing the trading hours. There are also opportunities for further promotion of the letting rooms, particularly by making use of established web based accommodation booking agencies. The business has its own website www.theswaninnmerriott.co.uk which provides further background

The Swan Inn is for sale on Free of Tie Leasehold basis with a guide price of 50,000. Full property details are available from the website www.stonesmith.co.uk and viewings arranged by calling 01392 201262.
