Family moves from Cyprus to take on Devon village inn

Pete and Chris Sandbach and their son David have moved from Cyprus to run the Royal Oak inn and B&B in the Devon village of Dolton.

The traditional-style village inn is a Grade-II listed property dating back to the 17th century that has built up a reputation for quality food and drink.

The first floor of the inn has three double/twin letting bedrooms, one en-suite, along with a separate shower and bathroom.

The principal bar will seat 30 customers and an adjoining snug bar will take another eight. There is additional seating for 25 diners or more in the separate dining room.

A rear bar/function room doubles as a sports area with a pool table and skittle alley. The property also has a small beer garden and parking facilities for up to five vehicles.

The generous owners' accommodation comprises five bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

Property agent Stonesmith of Exeter achieved a sale for close to the asking price of £75,000 for the free-of-tie leasehold.
