The pretty North Oxfordshire village pub situated on a popular route between Banbury and Shipston on Stour is being offered for £250,000 plus VAT Freehold and represents particularly good value.

Hotels director Peter Brunt, who has recently sold around a dozen small hotels and pubs across the region despite the downturn, is confident the Chandlers Arms won’t be on the market long.

He said: “The Chandlers Arms is on the Warwickshire border in this popular walking country. It is a very pretty property, charm oozing from its mellow stone walls and attractive mullioned windows. The area continues to draw buyers and with so many people searching for a good business opportunity in the Cotswolds I am not anticipating this one will be hanging around long.”

The pub had been part of the renowned Hook Norton estate for many years but is now considered too small within their current portfolio.

The Grade II listed property a two-storey extension. The bar has seating for around 12 people and the dining room is normally laid for another 12. There is also a grassed beer garden in the rear of the property.

The spacious owners’ accommodation comprises a living room, double bedroom with en suite bathroom and a further double bedroom.
