The Old Bull, London Street, Faringdon, Oxfordshire

Dating from at least the 18th Century, this Grade II listed property was formerly The Bull Inn and is situated just 2 minutes walk from the town centre. It has been lovingly restored by the present owners to create a real potential for B&B use.

The 6 bedroom accommodation is arranged over three floors. In addition there is a cellar and adjoining one-bed roomed, self-contained flat with its own entrance. There is a beautifully tended and remarkably private garden to the rear, and a substantial gravel area providing parking for several vehicles.

Faringdon is a historic market town on the edge of the Cotswolds with easy access to Oxford, Swindon and the surrounding areas. With an expanding population of around 10,000 there is currently a lack of B&B accommodation.

A fantastic opportunity to buy a unique, canal-side 4 bedroom house, with Full Planning Permission to build a detached Self Catering Cottage (or "Granny Annex") in the large garden!

The characterful main house was run as a highly successful 2 double-bed 4* B&B for 8 years and, if re-opened, would be an excellent business proposition, as the owners of two of the other B&Bs in the village have moved away and the remaining one now only takes repeat visitors.

Guests at the B&B came to stay all year round, as they not only included local businesses, but also a large number of people walking or cycling the canal towpaths, buying or selling boats or simply needing a spare room or two for their boat "crews" - and a large percentage of all the guests over the years were repeat visitors.

In addition to the main house and large garden, there is a field on which Full Planning Permission has been granted for a separate dwelling, which could be used as a 2 or 3 bed self-catering cottage and/or simply an extension to the B&B.

To get a good idea of the B&B and its surroundings, see the video that used to advertise it by clicking here.

The village of Braunston is the "centre" of the canal world, lying at the junction of the Grand Union and Oxford Canals. It is a beautiful area with 4 pubs, 2 cafes, 2 shops, a Post Office, a church and nursery and primary schools, all within 10 minutes walking distance. The small town of Daventry is 10 minutes drive away, Rugby and Coventry are 20 minutes and Birmingham is around 45 minutes. The train commute to London now takes less than an hour.

With an asking price of offers over 500,000, the property's Agents are Campbells, in Daventry, and the link to the property is here.
