Grange-over-Sands, LA11 6NN
The Hare & Hounds Grange-Over-Sands is an absolute gem of a pub, located in the popular town of Grange-over-Sands which is civil parish located on the north side of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria. Grange is a pretty and popular resort with an Edwardian flavour and a mild climate. It is on the shores of Morecambe Bay, and from the 13th Century until the 1850’s, the major route from Lancaster was across the sands. In 1887, the coming of the Furness Railway encouraged the growth of Grange from a small hamlet to the town we see today. Travelling by road, Grange Over Sands is ideally located 13.1 miles to the south of Kendal, 25 miles to the east of Barrow-in-Furness and 28.1 miles to the west of Lancaster.

About the Pub
On entering this charming pub, to the left you are welcomed with a comfy snug with cosy fixtures and fittings, complete with an open fire place which is exceptionally popular on the cooler days and this area is serviced by the delightful bar slightly to the right. To the right of the pub you will find the dining areas which are split into four sections which could easily accommodate a large number of diners at a time. Directly in front of you when entering the pub is access to the wonderful letting rooms located on the first floor. Outside the pub, the beer garden embraces the building in a horseshoe manner, with picnic benches to the front and side and a dramatic garden to the rear with phenomenal and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.
The Hare & Hounds Grange-Over-Sands is the definition of a Country Inn, with it’s exceptional location, beautiful letting rooms, traditional drinking area and fantastic food offer. The trade here is currently a 70/30 split towards the food side of the business, so someone with cheffing experience would be ideal. There is also a huge opportunity here to increase the income and popularity of the letting rooms, as these have recently been modified and not advertised to their fullest potential. The pub is extremely popular, not just with locals who support it all year round, but also with hikers and holiday makers in the warmer months.
There is no private accommodation at the Hare & Hounds Grange-Over-Sands.
Located on the first floor of the Hare & Hounds Grange-Over-Sands and accessed through the main entrance are the beautiful letting rooms. There are five double rooms in total, all with en suite bathrooms. These rooms have been made up to a great standard.

I am looking for an experienced operator with experience and knowledge of running a successful pub, having high standard letting rooms along with a great food offer. This individual or couple must be willing to embed themselves within the community and support locals, as well as championing marketing and social media to attract tourists. This is a rare opportunity for someone to take on a pub with this level of untouched revenue and must be able to produce a flawless business plan to unlock the potential of this gem. A higher level of funding will be required, given the amount of income streams the Hare & Hounds has to offer. There is also a free of tie option.
