Farmers Arms, Muker - For Sale

When you come to visit Swaledale, do you wish you didn't have to leave?

 

We have decided after much deliberation to put this successful and very profitable lifestyle business on the market for sale, and are looking for the right people to hand it over to.

                                    Never done it before? Neither had we! 

 

You just need to be hard working, concientious, and passionate about the area and we'd be happy to show you the rest......

 

Most of our customers love this pub and Swaledale as much as we do, and because we care so much, unusually, we’d like your help to find us the right people to hand over the baton of ownership of this successful and profitable lifestyle business to.

 

We think it would ideally suit a couple or family*:

  • who are hard working, conscientious and passionate about the area.

  • maybe fed up with their current job/s and wish they could work for themselves with a good work/life balance with great financial rewards.

  • maybe a cook/chef out there and their partner who find they don’t see each other as much as they’d like and would love to work together as a team, maybe one managing the kitchen and the other the bar?

  • more importantly – you don’t necessarily need to have done this before – we hadn’t! And we’d be happy to show any inexperienced owners what we’ve learnt and how we currently run it.

 

* The accommodation above the pub would suit a couple, as does the flat opposite which is currently used as a holiday let; however the income from the holiday flat would cover the rental of a local family property should larger accomodation be required. Or it could be developed further, maybe as a micro brewery... just ideas.

 

So please share this page and tag friends or family you think it might be of interest to.

The property is being marketed by local Estate agent, Marcus Alderson, should you have any questions or would like further information about the business, please contact them 01748 822711 or email info@marcusalderson.co.uk and ask for a catalogue.

Don't know us? Here's some more information about us, the pub and the area:

The Farmers Arms at Muker in Swaledale of the Yorkshire Dales is now up for sale. A very successful and profitable lifestyle business for anyone wanting to live and work in the most beautiful part of the world.

Darren and Emily have been at the helm of this business since 2010 and have continued its long running success with as much enthusiasm and passion for the pub and Swaledale as the visitors to the area.

 "So don't worry - it's business as usual, we still love the place and are proud of what we do!"

Now in their seventh season, and still young enough to want to do other things with their lives, they have decided to put the pub on the market in order to achieve other ambitions.

"This pub is just as successful and profitable than ever, but we feel the time is right to hand the baton of ownership to someone else, someone hopefully as much in love with the pub and Swaledale as we are, who will continue with its success, and uphold the local traditions.” 

The Farmers Arms at Muker is a Freehouse, which means it is privately owned and has no ties to a brewery; this gives the owners a huge amount of flexibility as to how the pub is run, what to stock, and how to spend the profits.

With two darts teams, a dominoes league, and being a central part of the local community; the pub is well supported by locals and boasts an incredible trade throughout the year. The tourist season in Swaledale is longer than some other tourist hot spots, with high volumes of visitors from early April until late October, and the winter trade is incredibly buoyant. 

“The pub has always been a firm favourite with locals and visitors, and it’s grown more successful with each set of new owners over the years, as we all strive to improve it and make it better than ever; offering a great choice of good home cooked food, well-kept real ales including the much loved Theakstons’ Old Peculier, and creating a lovely welcoming atmosphere. These have all been key to its continuing growth in trade, even during the recession, and there is no reason why it should not continue to do so well.”
