New owner for Oxfordshire country inn

The Inn at Emmington, a traditional country inn with rooms overlooking the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire, has been sold on a brand new lease.

Once called the Plough and Harrow and since named after the nearby hamlet of Emmington, the inn was originally an 18th century alehouse serving the local farming community.

It sits on Sydenham Road, the main route between the village of Chinnor and the historic market town of Thame, and is near the Buckinghamshire border with easy access to the M40.

It comprises two main buildings that retain a host of period features such as exposed beams, open fireplaces solid wood flooring.

The buyer, David McLelland, has a strong food and beverage background.

Facilities include seven double en-suite bedrooms (with planning permission to add four more), a lounge bar and restaurant with seating for 45 customers, four-bedroom owners' accommodation, a trade patio and garden, a private owners' garden, and a large car park.

The Milton Keynes office of Christie + Co sold the new, free-of-tie lease off a guide price of £70,000, with annual rent starting at £39,000. The vendor was David de Kretser, trading as Deekay Developments.
