Cornwall’s second highest inn up for sale

With breathtaking views of Bodmin Moor, The Old Inn at St Breward attracts customers from all over Cornwall and beyond for its lovely location, age-old charm and high quality food. 
Current owner Darren Wills bought the pub in 1999 and since then no expense has been spared on refurbishing and extending the property – resulting in an award-winning business that enjoys an excellent turnover.
St Breward is one of Cornwall’s highest villages at about 700 feet and two of the county’s best known landmarks, Rough Tor and Brown Willy, are both within its parish.  The Old Inn, which dates back to the 11th century, has been a pub for nearly 200 years.  It is steeped in character and history – making it an attractive draw to the many visitors who use its facilities as a starting point for exploring the very popular Camel Trail to Wadebridge and Padstow.
The good-sized restaurant, which is regularly used as a function room for wedding receptions and parties, has up to 94 covers inside, 60 covers outside in the beer garden, 25 covers on the decking and a further 70 covers throughout the bar areas.  On the first floor, the two bedroom owners’ accommodation, which could be extended, includes a living room, kitchen, bathroom and a master bedroom en suite.  Subject to planning, a new build house could also be built on the footprint of the garage that is situated in the car park.
“The inn is in a lovely spot and the business does very well,” said owner Darren Wills who has scooped Best Community Pub in the Westcountry and Pub of the Year awards during his tenure.  “I’ve been running it for nearly 13 years and feel that the time is now right for me to move on and pursue other career interests.
“It would make an ideal opportunity for anyone looking for a lifestyle change.  Everything is up and running very successfully so there is no need to spend extra money on renovation or refurbishment – it’s all been done.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here and can thoroughly recommend the pub ownership experience.”
The Old Inn is being offered for sale by Miller & Son for £1.1million freehold.
