Reinvigorated trade for traditional Dartmoor inn to drive a quick sale

Reinvigorated trade for traditional Dartmoor inn to drive a quick sale

Posted: Monday 20 August 2018

Surrounded by Devon countryside on the eastern edge on Dartmoor, the 12th century thatched village pub The Artichoke Inn is on the market and its location is fully expected to drive a quick sale.

The Artichoke Inn, in the heart of Christow, is a charming country pub in an equally charming village. Located in Devon’s stunning Teign Valley near the small town of Chudleigh and on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park, visitors can take full advantage of the glorious countryside that borders it.

Genuine historic village pubs come to market on occasions few and far between, but when they do, they attract heavy interest, and The Artichoke is no different. Being at the heart of village life for generations of loyal locals and regulars, the pub retains all its original appeal and character, despite the modernisation of many features.

However, the pub is still crammed with olde worlde charm including original slate floors, panelled wood walls, and low ceilings with exposed wooden beams. Comprising of lounge bar, games room, restaurant for 30+ covers, and full commercial kitchen, the pub also has a south-facing beer garden at the rear comfortably seating 30, while an adjacent car park has spaces for 15 vehicles.

Generous owner’s accommodation is accessed through the front ground floor entrance and extends over two storeys, comprising bathroom, lounge, private kitchen, office, and three double bedrooms, one with full en-suite facilities. 

Jon Clyne, Director at Charles Darrow Commented: “The Artichoke has a robust turnover and healthy net profits split between drink and food sales, with the current owner, Samuel Key looking to move on to other projects having reinvigorated the trade. The Artichoke represents a cracking opportunity to purchase a traditional freehouse in a lovely village location”.

The Artichoke is for sale off a guide price of £295,000 for the freehold interest.
