The Ghost Train pub, Wiltshire

The Ghost Train pub, Wiltshire
This week's featured property is a spookily-named leasehold pub business in Wiltshire. The Ghost Train pub in Purton, four miles from Swindon, was previously known as the Railway hotel but was topically renamed after the station was closed following Dr Beeching's review of the railways in the 1960s. After a refurbishment last year, the ground floor of the property comprises a bar area with adjacent 30-cover restaurant and a skittle alley/games room that doubles as a dance floor. On the first floor there's a function room and three-bedroom owner's accommodation. Outside, there's a detached barn with a first-floor meeting room, a beer garden with picnic tables and car parking for about 30 cars, and a covered beer terrace directly accessible from the bar. The leasehold and contents are being marketed through the Bristol office of chartered surveyor Fleurets off a guide price of £49,950. For further information contact Bill Evans on 0117 923 8090, or e-mail
