Odcombe is a charming hamstone village located in South Somerset, approximately 3 miles west of the town of Yeovil. The upper part of the village, Higher Odcombe, sits on the crest of a hill while the lower part, Lower Odcombe is built on its northern slopes. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book and retains all of its English village charm. The area is bursting with tourist attractions and stately homes to visit including the National Trust’s Montacute House, only a mile away and other attractions including Tintinhull Gardens, Ham Hill Country Park, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Barrington Court and Haynes International Motor Museum, amongst many others. The Masons Arms is less than a ten minutes’ drive from the A303, making this a very central location to both stay and visit.
The Masons Arms is not just a pub! The business has many strings to it and its success lies in the fact that it offers so much, to such a wide audience, including locals and regulars, tourists, campers and motor homers. The main pub oozes character with low beamed ceilings in the trade areas, which lead through to the converted skittle alley - now six beautifully presented letting rooms with state of the art en-suite bathrooms. In between is the Odcombe Brewery, a one Brewers Barrel, plant which certainly adds another angle to the business. Outside is a magnificent trade garden adorned in hollyhocks, with a thatched Rondavel. To the rear of the building is the newly created shower block for the camping and motorhome site. There are two car parks that lead down to an enclosed paddock, with the camping site beyond. The Shepherds Hut was introduced two years ago and has proved incredibly popular, with potential to add further units. Above the pub is a two bedroom owners/manager's flat. Vendor is also offering an option to buy the Freehold interest in Poppy Cottage a 1 bed holiday home which is three houses down the road.
The Masons Arms is a truly unique business, which is presented to an extremely high standard throughout and showing a particularly strong net profit.
An early viewing of the business is recommended.
