Cumbrian inn changes hands

The Manchester office of Colliers International has advised on the sale of the Black Bull Inn in the east Cumbrian village of Nateby near Kirkby Stephen.

Vendor Paul Bonsall sold the pub to Nick and Gaynor Walker, who move from North Shields to Nateby.

Haydn Spedding of Colliers International said: "Despite the continuing difficult market conditions, the sale of the Black Bull Inn at Nateby underlines the continuing confidence in the Cumbria market.

The oldest parts of the Black Bull date back to the 17th Century and it has been substantially extended over the years to form a lovely traditional village inn which not only has a very comfortable bar and dining room but also five individually-styled en suite bedrooms and separate and self-contained two bedroom owners' accommodation.

"The Black Bull Inn is an ideal purchase for Nick and Gaynor as they also have self-catering holiday accommodation which they own and manage locally."

The Black Bull Inn was sold from an asking price of £295,000.
