The Farmers Arms is a traditional Dales pub in a honeypot village location in Upper Swaledale.

The village is one of the most sought after villages in Swaledale, being full of character and history. It is located on the Coast to Coast route and the Pennine Way, with a good community spirit. It has a village shop & tearoom, the famous Swaledale Wool Shop and is a tourist hotspot throughout the year. The village has a popular campsite, several holiday cottages and B&B's which all open throughout the year.

The pub is being run as a lifestyle business by a husband and wife team, along with one part time staff member and weekend help. Since owning the property the sellers have modernised and refurbished to create a perfect, characterful pub with a great reputation both locally and with returning visitors taking bookings well in advance.

The ground floor of the pub is spacious and welcoming. There are three dining areas and a spacious bar area with feature stone fireplace with large multi fuel stove. At the rear are two beer cellars and customer WC's.

Upstairs is a large, well equipped catering kitchen with prep areas and walk-in refrigerators and freezer. All commercial appliances will be included in the sale.

The owners accommodation comprises a beautiful master bedroom suite with en shower bathroom, lovely sitting room and a second bedroom/ dining room and a separate shower room.

Opposite the pub is a detached barn. The barn has been converted to provide studio style, first floor accommodation. This is currently used a staff accommodation but would be an ideal opportunity to expand the business and offer holiday let stays. The ground is dry storage with good, roadside access.

To the front of the property is a south facing beer garden, space for 7 tables and benches, this is very popular and a great spot to enjoy food and drink.

At the rear of the property is an enclosed yard area and a stone built store.

The Farmers Arms is a great opportunity to take on a well established business in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
