Anyone who has dreamed about owning a country inn could see that wish come true as a traditional Northumberland inn has hit the market.

The White Swan in Warenford, located off the A1 south of Belford and west of Bamburgh and Seahouses, is described as a traditional country inn with a blend of character and modern touches. The pub serves local and seasonal food, to a restaurant with 72 covers and a bar area with space for a further 20.

There are three letting rooms on the first floor, and an external one-bedroom lodge with a private hot tub which was built in 2023. The current owners have secured planning permission for a double-storey extension with six additional letting rooms.

David Cash, regional director - pubs & restaurants at Christie & Co, who is managing the sales process, said: "The White Swan is a superb example of a pub-restaurant with rooms which has upheld an exceptional reputation for its food for many years.

"Its position just off the A1, north of Alnwick and in close proximity to the Northumberland Coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty means it is popular with tourists visiting the area but also has a strong, repeat local custom.

"We expect interest from owner-operators looking to take on a thriving business but given it's potential for further development, The White Swan may also suit a multi-site operator with other hospitality businesses in the area."

The White Swan Inn at Warenford is on the market for £640,000. For more information, visit the listing on Rightmove.
