Business History

The Stafford Court Hotel/ Public house dates back to 1611. It closed as a hotel a few years ago and is currently being used as a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO). The building has 14 rooms and our client has also applied for planning permission for a further 10 rooms on the lower floor which would give an increased yield. The building does require refurbishment and does suit a builder / developer more favourably. The building would be ideal for conversion into apartments or flats (planning permitting). With a car park for up to ten vehicles to the rear this building (rare for the town centre).
