The Grant Arms is a substantial and imposing property that has been trading as a hotel. The current vendors have owned and operated the business since 2005, operating the business on a wet sales and bed & breakfast basis to suit their lifestyle for a number of years.
The property has now been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire from the tourist trade. The property offers an excellent opportunity to expand the business back to a small hotel, and also offering lunch and dinner service to both locals and tourists alike.
