Description

The Duke of York is situated in the popular and picturesque Shepton Beauchamp, a thriving village with a 13th Century Church, Primary School, Post Office, other small businesses and sports clubs. The village is popular with families and retirees who enjoy living in this charming village with a great community atmosphere and its accessibility to the A303 and other towns and villages in the south Somerset area. The A303 links London to the Westcountry just beyond the town of Ilminster which is approximately 4 miles distant. The county town of Taunton and regional towns of Yeovil and Honiton are all within a short drive as is the beautiful Jurassic coast, situated between East Devon and Dorset. Rail links are found at Crewkerne connecting to Waterloo in London with airports at Exeter and Bristol. There is a wealth of places of interest, historic houses, gardens and other visitor attractions within easy reach of the Duke of York including Barrington Court, East Lambrook Manor Gardens, Montacute House, Muchelney Abbey, Hayes Motor Museum, the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Wells Cathedral and Clarkes Village in Street, to name a few.

This stunning Grade II Listed property is constructed of Ham stone under a pitched tiled roof. The deceptively large property fronts the heart of this picture postcard village and extends up a gentle incline behind. The property has been beautifully renovated and restored over the term of our client’s ownership with a significant single storey brick built letting accommodation annex situated to the rear, built approximately eight years ago. The outside areas have been extensively landscaped with a skittle alley to the side.

The Duke of York offers a warm welcome with a superb selection of real ales and ciders, complimented by an excellent range of wines. The Inn offers a traditional pub menu with a great selection of specials making the most of the best of local produce from the area, cooked fresh to order. The Sunday carvery is particularly popular as are the regular steak nights held at the Duke of York.

The property has 4 en suite letting rooms which compliment the Inn and provides a strong additional revenue with knock on trade in the bar and restaurant. There is also a separate self-contained flat, currently let, however this has previously been used as a fifth letting room/suite. The rooms are available through the Eviivo booking portal with tariffs ranging from £70 - £90 per night on a B&B basis.

Our clients have been at the Inn for 16 years and are now looking to retire. Whilst trade is well established, there is undoubtedly huge potential for new owners to energise the business further and to grow trade.
