Cotswold coaching inn on the market for £1.25m

A 15th century coaching inn is now on the market with real estate advisor Colliers International, priced at £1.25 million.

Burford's Grade II listed Bull Hotel has a distinctive brick-built frontage, which stands out from the rest of the High Street as it slopes toward the River Windrush.

Peter Brunt, a Hotels director at Colliers International, said: "With a prominent position in the middle of the High Street, The Bull offers plenty of old-world charm with huge stone fireplaces in the public areas and some of the bedrooms.

"If you are looking for comfortable and stylish, four poster accommodation, you will not be disappointed."

"The 18 rooms provide a solid base for the F&B element, which draws plenty of local as well as one-off visitor custom. Burford remains a mecca for thousands of tourists every year and is easily accessed from London via the M40 and A40 - ideal for the short break business that is becoming increasingly important to the industry.

"In addition, the staff accommodation could be converted in to five letting rooms - to give 22 rooms in total - subject to the usual planning permissions. The Bull would also readily convert to B&B use for a buyer just looking for a business without a food and beverage offering."

And with sales of £603,000 in the year ending 2018 under management, Peter Brunt believes there is great scope to increase trade under new ownership.

"Our clients bought the business from Greene King in 2009 and set about a major refurbishment transforming the business in to the guest-based business you see today. But after many years in the business have decided on retirement and let new owners take this stunning property forward."

The key attraction is the Bull's location in the heart of the Cotswolds. Bibury is nine miles away, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are both 10 miles away, while Cirencester, Oxford and Cheltenham are 16, 20 and 22 miles away respectively.
