LOCATION & DESCRIPTION
The original Craven Heifer was the largest cow ever shown in England (bred in the early 19th century on the nearby Duke of Devonshire’s Bolton Abbey Estate) now giving its name to this long established ‘farmhouse’ public house – and which comprises characterful bar and dining areas, all substantially developed in recent years to include letting bedrooms (part within the adjoining barn) plus staff and private accommodation.
Externally, the large site offers high capacity sitting out area/patio to the front (South – with potential for extension on the west elevation), extensive parking to two sides (capacity approx 40 vehicles) and further areas for development.
Situated immediately to the north of Skipton (‘Gateway to the Dales’) the property is just off the main A65/59 by-pass, fronting the busy B6265 Grassington Road. On the fringe of the National Park in superb open countryside the site is well situated to benefit from the significant passing and tourist/visitor trade in this area as well as convenient for a large local clientele.
Historically the property has been let on behalf of Charity Trustees, the property/business presently closed/not trading and available either freehold or by way of a new free of tie lease.
