Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, renowned Warwickshire watering hole the Fox & Hounds in Great Wolford is on the market with go-to sector specialists Colliers International.
Described as the quintessential unspoiled English country inn, the Fox & Hounds is within easy reach of the tourist hotspots of Chipping Campden, Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh.
The inn, a true foodie haven, has been at the heart of the village since 1540 and lies at the centre of a network of ancient footpaths and bridleways which makes it particularly attractive for walkers.
Colliers International hotels director Peter Brunt commented: “This delightful pub is everything you would hope to find in a pretty Cotswold village. The trading areas simply ooze character and atmosphere and there is considerable scope to develop trade.”
With three lovely lettings bedrooms, flagged floors, low beams and huge open fireplace, the Fox & Hounds makes a great base to explore the surrounding market towns and countryside.
Peter said: “The inn has a set of very stylish letting bedrooms allowing guests to extend their stay in this wonderful part of the world.
“As a location to trade, the Cotswolds is second to none, drawing tourists from around the world and day visitors from a very wide area. In addition it is one of the most desirable places to live in the country.”
On the market at £675,000 freehold, the Grade II listed property has two main restaurant/bar areas either side of the beautiful open fireplace. There is a low-beamed ceiling and a charming brass top bar servery.
Peter Brunt concluded: “Our clients bought the property in 2006 and have really enjoyed their time living in and operating the Fox & Hounds but will now move on to a well-deserved full retirement following the sale.”
The three letting bedrooms will sleep six (two double and one twin); two have en suite bathrooms and the third an en suite shower room.
Arranged over first and attic floors the spacious owner’s accommodation includes a large lounge, kitchen and office as well as two en suite double bedrooms and a further single bedroom.
