MUCH LOVED YORKSHIRE DALES NATIONAL PARK HOSTELRY TO GET NEW LEASE OF LIFE
The Marton Arms Hotel, Thornton in Lonsdale represents the quintessential Yorkshire Dales farmhouse country inn dating from 1670, the property situated just off the main A65 Skipton-Lakes road, one mile from Ingleton and six miles from Kirkby Lonsdale in an area with many surrounding attractions (not least including the Yorkshire Three Peaks, White Scar Caves, Ingleton Water Falls etc.)
Comprising extensive bars and dining accommodation with letting bedrooms (a popular function venue not least for the picturesque church opposite - and the distant views of Ingleborough beyond as a glorious backdrop for the wedding photos). The property attracted a good deal of interest for selling to new operators off an asking price of £465,000 (offers) - presently undergoing refurbishment and shortly to reopen as a quality inn with rooms.
CONFIDENTIAL INSTRUCTION LEADS TO SUCCESSFUL SALE
Sold by us in 2012, when the property was closed, the Fountain (former Barlick Hotel) Barnoldswick underwent a program of careful refurbishment to create the much loved business that it is today - a cornerstone of the local leisure circuit with traditional bars and dining plus superb letting bedrooms.
Mindful of the potential disruption that such a successful business can encounter through an open offer for sale the site was offered on a confidential basis, a targeted marketing program quickly securing a deal at the full asking price, and selling inside six weeks.
This property as much as any other usefully illustrates the continued demand for well presented and professionally operated businesses.
