These substantial freehold premises would make a fantastic bar with spacious and versatile accommodation on the upper floors offering an ideal opportunity to be used for AirBNB or B&B purposes. It is situated in a good trading position close to the Old Stone Quay, in one of the oldest parts of the town.
Thought to have been built during the early part of the 20th Century, the property is of traditional cavity brick construction with attractive front elevations of natural Purbeck stone under a slate roof.
The business has recently closed due to the retirement of the current owners, having been successfully run as a licensed bistro for over 30years and generating a good income.
Swanage lies at the Eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck delightfully situated between the Purbeck Hills. It has a fine, safe, sandy beach, and is an attractive mixture of old stone cottages and more modern properties, all of which blend in well with the peaceful surroundings.
