WICKEPIN HOTEL - BUSINESS AND LEASEHOLD
Have you ever harboured the desire to own a country pub? Does the thought of being the central hub of a close knit rural community appeal to you? This is your opportunity to fulfil that dream.
The Wickepin Hotel is located in the heart of Albert Facey Country, home of the renowned author of "A Fortunate Life". The area has a strong rural based community. The local environmental attractions include colourful wildflower displays during the season. Wickepin is in an easy drive from lakes Toolibin and Yearling.
The hotel is currently owned by a well-respected Wickepin farming family that has breathed life back into the old iconic pub. They have entered into a renovating program that has seen the premises revitalized and the business turnover tripled in the last couple of years. The accommodation units have all been upgraded. The dining room has been re-configured to encompass a cos country cafe. The main bar area still maintains the country charm that one expects in an Australian rural community.
The hotel is the central social hub of the local town and farming community. The business actively supports all sporting clubs: football, netball, hockey and tennis. These community groups hold regular meetings on the premises in the evenings and take full advantage of the facilities after home games. Located on the main street of Wickepin the business is well positioned to cater for passing travellers that are looking for refreshments and good old down to earth country hospitality.
The courtyard and sandpit area make it a popular place for mothers to meet or families to share a coffee and cake or a meal at the Harvest Cafe. The authentic bar area with pool table caters for visitors as well as the locals who enjoy the relaxed atmosphere to share a quiet drink and chat. The cafe area serves meals and has a seating area for 30 people. In addition they provide a venue and meals for bus tours and also provide food and accommodation for work crews that work in and around the Wiping area.
The current owners have decided that running a busy business and an even busier farming operation something has to give. With this in mind they have decided to put the hotel on the market. This is an ideal business for a hand's on couple to take on this business and immerse themselves into this close knit rural community.
