The Artichoke Inn is a delightful, thatched Grade II listed building comprising a charming Public House, three / four bedroom accommodation, a beer garden, courtyard, garage and an adjacent car park. It is reputed to have Twelfth century origins and lies in the heart of the very desirable Dartmoor National Park village of Christow, approximately 10 miles South West of Exeter. The current landlord intends to provide business as usual until the sale and it is hoped that the new licensee can take over at that time. The Public House includes all business fixtures, fittings and furnishings with the exception of some personal effects. There will be the opportunity to buy stock at valuation in the lead up to completion. The adjacent car park may have some future planning potential subject to Dartmoor National Park planning regulations.
