    Local information

    • The location of The Plough is ideal to enable it to benefit from the thriving tourism economy in the local area. The pub is situated in an area popular with walkers, holidaymakers and cyclists, with a large number of holiday cottages and caravan parks in the locality. This is a rare opportunity for the incoming tenant to develop and run a pub in a popular area for rural tourism, with limited local competition.
    • The Plough is part of the wider Hedgeley Estate; the Landlord is seeking a tenant with a business minded approach, who has the flexibility to work collaboratively with the Estate.
    • The Plough has the potential to be a thriving village pub. It is in an advantageous location, directly on the A697 which runs from Morpeth to Coldstream producing a large amount of passing trade. With local holiday parks, alongside the tourism generated by the National Park and regional heritage attractions, The Plough has the potential to draw in a wide range of customers.

    Additional information

    • The Plough currently requires significant internal renovation and there will be an opportunity for the successful applicant to engage with the process and influence the final design. Furthermore, there will be the opportunity for the Tenant to share financially in the project in order to extend the scope of the renovations.
    • Due to the size of the property there could be potential to develop a bed and breakfast or small hotel business alongside the pub. At present there are five bedrooms on the first floor which would make good sized guest accommodation, or could provide living space for a manager or staff.
    • Any renovations will need to take into consideration the listed nature of the property, particularly with reference to the external features.
