AN ICONIC COACHING INN DATING FROM THE 17th CENTURY STANDING IN GROUNDS AND PADDOCK OF ABOUT 4.8 ACRES IN A VERY PROMINENT POSITION ON THE DENBIGH MOORS BETWEEN DENBIGH AND THE A5 AT PENTREFOELAS.

The Sportsmans Arms is a very well known Inn to many, standing on a well known tourist route into the heart of North Wales towards Betws-y-Coed some 13 miles distant in Snowdonia, and also the nearby Brenig and Alwen Reservoirs noted for numerous country walks, cycle tracks and renowned fishing in the Brenig.

The building is vacant and offered for sale freehold and free of any tie, being a large and versatile Inn with five bedrooms and bathroom self-contained to the first floor, a large three bedroom self-contained Annexe ideal as a holiday let or owner accommodation, extensive parking with rear yard, outbuildings and a large paddock to the rear and one side, an ideal venue for a range of activities such as glamping pods, subject to consent.

LOCATION

The inn has extensive frontage on to the A543 Denbigh to Pentrefoelas Road some 8 miles from Denbigh, three miles from the Brenig Reservoir and about eight miles from the A5 at Cerrigydrudion. It is a busy thoroughfare for many in The Vale and the Gateway into Snowdonia, but it is also an area to make full use of the range of outdoor activities on offer at The Brenig, the many country walks, bridleways and cycle paths the area is noted for.
