A Lake District hotel and brewery has seen its asking price reduced by £300,000.

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought down the asking price of the Strands Hotel and Screes Inn and brewery in Nether Wasdale to £1,700,000.

Current owners, husband and wife team, Mark and Lesley Corr purchased the Strands Hotel after falling in love with the 18th century inn during their very first trip to the village.

In 2006, Mark opened an on-site microbrewery and recently opened the brewery shop. The brewery currently produces over 40 different styles of beer.

In 2017, Mark and Lesley purchased the Screes Inn pub with a further eight en-suite letting rooms. The Strands has remained at the centre of local life in the village, winning Pub of the Year 2016 for Western Cumbria by CAMRA – Campaign for Real Ale.

Mr. Corr said: “This is a very profitable business, which we have developed over the past 13 years, someone just needs to keep it up. If they want to build on the existing business there is room for lots more growth across all areas, especially within the Brewery. We feel that this is a very special place and we are sure the next owners will feel that too.”

Positioned in the heart of the valley, the properties command stunning views of the surrounding fells and are perfectly positioned to explore the natural beauty of the Lake District including Wastwater and Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.

Originally built as a hotel and post house, many of the original features remain with log fires and wooden beams throughout both buildings.

The Strands Hotel benefits from 14 individually designed en suite bedrooms, lounge bar, and restaurant, in addition to a three bedroom owner’s accommodation.
