SOLD: Pickwick Inn, St Anne’s Chapel, Bigbury


Stonesmith are delighted to have sold The Pickwick Inn, in St Anne’s Chapel, Bigbury. This attractive Grade II Listed, Free of Tie, character village inn has been the subject of complete renovation and refurbishment over the last 4 years. Originally built around the remains of a 15th Century chapel, the Inn is presented and furnished to a high standard throughout whilst retaining character features such as stripped wood flooring, exposed ceiling beams, stonework and open fireplaces.

Located in the hamlet of St Anns Chapel – approximately 1 mile from the renowned and hugely popular Bigbury beach and Burgh Island. The Pickwick Inn enjoys a popular local following from the surrounding villages and towns, and has a strong year-round regular trade, whilst also enjoying a major boost from tourists visiting the area during the peak summer months. The inn also has an excellent reputation for real ales, fine wines and quality freshly prepared food. The business has its own website which provides further background on the business.

The Inn has been purchased by Robert and Carrie-Ann Heasman, who have a background in the pub industry and are relocating from London.

Mike Phillips, of selling agents Stonesmith, commented: “We were delighted to announce the sale of the Pickwick Inn, and wish Robert and Carrie-Ann the very best for the future of this well supported village inn”.

The business was sold for an undisclosed figure, off a Free of Tie leasehold asking price of £79,950.
