Full Details

An exciting opportunity to purchase this delightful and extensively refurbished village pub with four modern guest rooms in a honey-pot location just 50m from Hadrians Wall National Trail. The thriving business provides bar and dining facilities, an open lounge and separate restaurant and snug. Externally is a large stone built shed, private car park and an enclosed beer garden. The bed and breakfast accommodation includes 4 bedrooms each with en-suite facilities, with permission to convert 2 more rooms on the second floor. Before the pandemic the business had a net annual turnover in excess of £300k and is now open again and trading profitably.

The sale also includes a 2 bedroom flat that would make ideal owner / manager accommodation, or could provide an additional income in rent.

There is undoubted scope to further develop and may ideally suit those seeking an involved role within an established and well reputed business.

The Samson Inn has been owned and operated by the current owners since 2013.. During this time they have undertaken an extensive refurbishment and re-fit project to the public house and restaurant areas, as well as the B&B accommodation and manager’s flat. The sale includes all fixtures, fittings and goodwill and the business produces a healthy turnover which enjoys a balanced split between income streams. The business is fully staffed and has undoubted potential for further development and diversification.

Gilsland is a small, friendly village of about 400 people that straddles the Cumbria-Northumberland border just off the A69, 20 miles east of Carlisle.. It is an important hub and gateway to Hadrian’s Wall, which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors a year from all over the world. The Hadrians Wall National Trail at Gilsland, which passes just 50m from the pub, has an annual footfall of approximately 50,000. All the important Roman sites are within easy reach of the village, including Vindolanda, Housesteads, Birdoswald and the Sill centre. In addition, there is an on-going, optimistic campaign to reopen the railway station a stone’s throw from the Samson, which would further boost both tourism and local job prospects for the village.
