A fantastic opportunity to acquire a beautiful Pub or development opportunity. This property currently operates as a gastro pub and is successfully owner operated with part time assistance. Because of its size and layout, it would also be ideal as a development opportunity for change of usage to 5 x holiday cottages or multiple apartments subject to planning. It is ideally situated in a lovely rural location just outside Lynton & Lynmouth and adjacent to a Manor hotel. The property comprises of a ground floor gents and ladies’ toilet, large bar / dining area for approx. 45 covers and to the front, a substantial garden with bench seating tables for an additional 50/60 covers.


The location of the Beggars Roost is in an elevated position above the village of Barbrook which is only a short walking distance away from Lynton and Lynmouth, a highly popular tourist area on the North Devon Coast and is on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Woolacombe Beach and Lee Bay Beaches are also nearby. All main arterial road links are nearby and Barnstable town centre is only a short drive away.


The business is owner operated successfully with part time assistance when required. However, because of overdue retirement, this has now been placed on the market for sale as a turn-key business, or because of the fantastic accommodation on offer, a development opportunity to potential 5 x holiday cottages. As a business there is plenty of redundant space on the 1st floor for owners’ accommodation or even for weddings, functions or simply for additional restaurant floor space. Full trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
