Putt in a bid for golfers’ pub

Around four million adults in the UK play golf and in East Sussex a fair few of them are members of Sweetwoods Park or Holtye golf clubs – which are conveniently  next door to the White Horse Inn at Cowden.

The freehold of this listed property, including its 11 fully fitted, en-suite bedrooms, is for sale through licensed leisure specialists AG&G at a guide price of £650,000.

“It’s a fantastic location in the Sussex Weald, just a short way south of Edenbridge,” says James Grimes, of AG&G. “Given its listed status, guest bedrooms and a licence to 1.00am every day of the week, it is ideal for a restaurant operator who also wants to benefit from the hotel side of the business, or vice versa.

“Many of those rooms could be filled by golfers wanting to play on either of the two courses that neighbour the White Horse. The Hoyte golf club mentions it on its website.

“The main building sits on a site of more than an acre and contains seven en-suite rooms on the first floor and a further one in a loft extension. The other four guest rooms are in a cottage that adjoins the Hoyte golf course.”

The ground floor has interconnected trade areas, a trade kitchen, a restaurant and two sets of customer WCs. Also on the first floor is a manager’s flat with bedroom, sitting room, WC, kitchen and a linen store. The basement has standard cellarage and storage. There’s parking for up to 20 vehicles.
