There is an offering for the ambitious operator this week in the shape of a hotel and restaurant business in North Yorkshire.

The Bean Sheaf Country Hotel & Restaurant is a substantial property on the A169 between the market towns of Malton and Pickering. Passing trade is boosted by its proximity to attractions such as Castle Howard, Helmsley Castle and the Flamingoland Theme Park and Zoo.

The property, parts of which date from the 18th century, comprises 20 en suite letting bedrooms, two bars, a restaurant, and a function room for as many as 120 people, with extensive gardens and a car park.

The freehold interest and contents are being marketed by the Leeds office of chartered surveyor Fleurets off an asking price of £650,000. For more information contact Annie Brown on 0113 234 0304 or e-mail
