What’s on the market: The Blacksmiths Country Inn, Rosedale Abbey, Pickering

The Blacksmiths Country Inn, Rosedale Abbey, Pickering – Leasehold: Guide Rent – £45,000 pa

Set close to the delightful village of Rosedale Abbey and nestled within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, this former 16th century inn could be the perfect acquisition.

The Blacksmiths Country Inn is an iconic property within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, and with tourists flooding to the area regularly, this inn offers amazing potential to become a leading venue as well as the added bonus of potential function and wedding trade, should the new owners wish to take that route.

Andrew Spencer from Fleurets told us: ‘The Blacksmiths Country Inn is a long-established site that has the potential and space to do marquee-based weddings in the gardens in addition to the three obvious income streams.’

With nineteen en-suite rooms on offer, there’s plenty of business to be gained. Not only this, but with four superior rooms sitting separately from the rest, each one with French windows that open out on to private gardens, the potential of The Blacksmiths Country Inn is hard to ignore.

Surrounded by extensive gardens, the property comprises of a detached stone built, two storey building with additional single storey buildings to the rear, all of which are topped by pitch slate roofs. Walking through the front doors, you’ll be lead to the front bar, with a combination of fixed and loose seating, wooden benches and an open fire to top off that cosy, country feel.

The servery then extends towards another larger public bar to the rear, serving food. It doesn’t stop there though, this property really does have a lot to offer. Additional rooms connected to these public areas include residents’ lounges, which are currently used for meeting, reading and relaxation.

On top of all this, is the separate 60 cover restaurant which has been fitted to an exceptionally high standard, alongside a fully fitted commercial kitchen, meaning you’ll be good to go almost as soon as you’ve got the keys. Other rooms include a separate hotel reception and office, storage, ladies and gents WCs and access to an upland beer cellar.

Despite everything going for it, the real winner for us is The Blacksmiths Country Inn’s location. With four acres of gardens surrounding the property that offer breathtaking views of the moors, this truly is a North Yorkshire gem.
