Glasgow publicans buy the Carts Bog Inn near near the Tyne Valley

The country inn sits alongside the A686 in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the Tyne Valley centres of Hexham and Corbridge.

The inn was added to a working farm in 1775 to serve the carters hauling lead from the Alston mines to Langley when their carts became bogged down in marshy ground.

The bar features a traditional open stone fireplace, ceiling beams, and bay windows

The dining room, located in a former cow byre, has two connecting areas that can seat around 50 diners, along with a games room.

The property also boasts a car park, two gardens (including a beer garden with quoits pitches) and a two-bedroom owners' accommodation on the first floor.

The Leeds office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold for a little less than the £525,000 sought by the retiring owners Richard and Anne Bainbridge.
