Run a Stonegate Pub - Coach & Horses Bourton Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

About the Pub

This is an excellent opportunity to operate a business at one of the busiest tourist destinations in the country. Bourton on the Water, said to be one of the prettiest villages in England, is known as the Little Venice of the Cotswolds and attracts visitors in huge numbers throughout the year. It offers many shops and other attractions such as Birdland, the Motor Museum, and the Model Village. The entrance from the car park opens into a charming main bar that can accommodate 20 customers. Traditionally decorated with wooden and flagstone flooring throughout, and an original inglenook fireplace, guests will feel at home in its warm and cosy environment. Its subtle, contemporary décor comprises exposed brick wall and discreet features without compromising its relaxed environment. A separate barn situated twenty yards from the main building houses the pristine letting accommodation, which comprises two large family rooms, two double rooms and a twin room, all of which are ensuite and in perfect condition. To the left of the pub is a large, grassed beer garden with a substantial patio that is in fitting with this incredible proposition. Tall trees surrounding the perimeter provide a countryside landscape that encapsulates the exquisite beauty of this area. Emphasis must be placed on the rear trading space potential as a multi-purpose area, and if paired with a clear marketing strategy could boost business growth. The business also benefits from five letting rooms and a large garden area.
