The West Country Inn is strategically located on the North Devon/Cornwall border fronting the popular A39 “Atlantic Highway” holiday route. Bude is 10 miles distant and Bideford 13 miles (north east). The destination is ideal for tourists from which to explore this fabulous stretch of coastline and there is an extensive supporting hinterland as far as local trade is concerned. Set in approximately 2.5 acres, it is also a delightful place in which to live ! Take a look at this businesses website ....

GENERALLY
The building is thought to date in parts to 1570 and has traded as a Coaching Inn since these times. Fair to say, therefore, the business is very well established. The current owner has run the business since November 2003 and is selling now to pursue other business interests.
This is a substantial building in its own right though set in acreage we consider there may be further development opportunities (subject to obtaining planning permission if required) indeed the Camping and Caravanning Club have recently granted permission for its use as a certified site for 10 x tents and 5 x touring caravans – this being subject only to the installation of a chemical disposal point and associated water supply. Capital costs to achieve this are low and will most certainly introduce the potential of another income stream throughout the year. There are 9 en-suite letting bedrooms, main Bar with a wealth of character, Games Room and Snug Area, Conservatory, Carvery Restaurant for 100, Functions Suite, enclosed Beer Garden (80 plus), Beer Terrace, 2 paddock areas, car parking for 100 vehicles and owners accommodation with 3 double bedrooms. Other recent additions include a Gymnasium and Spa facility.
INTERNAL DETAILS
The Main Bar area has tremendous character with exposed ceiling timbers, open fireplace having fitted log burner, exposed brickwork etc. Leading off - a Games Room and Snug Area with leather sofas whilst there is also a lovely Conservatory to the rear. An overflow Dining Area provides an additional 12 covers and there is a second Conservatory at the roadside frontage of the property. Gymnasium and Spa facility.
A Carvery Restaurant provides facilities for 100 covers and there is an additional Functions Room.
The Commercial Kitchen is very well equipped and there is a Chef’s Office leading off. Dry Store and Laundry Room.
LETTING ACCOMMODATION
All letting accommodation is located at first floor level. There are 9 letting bedrooms (5 x standard double; 1 x twin; 1 x family; 1 x King size double and 1 x Super King double) all with en-suite facilities and each having its own individual character features.
OWNERS ACCOMMODATION
Takes the form of an apartment at the rear of the building and providing 3 double bedrooms, lounge and family bathroom.
EXTERNAL DETAILS
Externally there is a large open surface car park for 100 vehicles, enclosed Beer Garden (80 plus), Beer Terrace, a single Garage and 2 x paddock areas. Caravan and Camping site area. The overall property/land extends to approximately 2.5 acres (estimated)
THE BUSINESS
The business has been owned and run by the current owner for the past 12 years, during which time the business has generally gone from strength to strength with an ever improving reputation as a friendly, well run family business.
It is seen very much as a destination pub and with the influx of tourism during the summer months and with passing trade during the winter. The West Country Inn caters for all sectors of the trade.
Within the area there are multiple holiday lets, caravan parks, B & B’s and letting chalets, all of which interact with the pub itself. The business also is well known by walkers, sports pursuit guests and year round business trade.
Over the past 3 years The West Country Inn has achieved a 3AA Inn Star Rating and currently holds a 5 Star Hygiene Certificate and Tribute Master Certification awarded by St Austell Brewery and recognition from other recommending bodies.
