The Braemou Inn sits centrally to this popular picturesque village, enjoying panoramic views across the Moray Firth and to the hills northwards. The Inn is ideally placed to take advantage of the popularity of the area to the tourism sector. With a population of circa 1750, Hopeman is a growing community within commuter distance of Elgin and Forres. The village benefits from its own retail units, an indoor / outdoor bowling club, hotel, primary school and various community clubs etc. Hopeman has its own harbour. A wider range of facilities and amenities are available in Elgin and Lossiemouth, which are both only a short drive away, including secondary schools, a varied selection of retail outlets, leisure facilities, medical centres, and the train station. There is a popular 18-hole golf course in Hopeman with a further championship course in Lossiemouth plus many others within a short drive. The broader area boasts a number of sandy beaches, quality golf courses and places of general interest. The area is renowned for its sea life and the coast is home to the ever-popular dolphins. Water sports and fishing are highly popular past times in the region, as are field sports.
A most attractive feature of this sale is the spacious owners house which extends to 3 bedrooms plus a further office / study. The house has a private access from the main footpath which leads into a spacious hallway which, in turn, provides access to the lounge (leading to the kitchen dining room), the master bedroom and the family bathroom. Two bedrooms are on the first floor, as is the office study. The house is presented in excellent order and to a high standard of décor. The kitchen is modern with both floor and wall mounted units. There is a large utility room.
The current owners purchased the Inn in 2012 and have developed the internal aspects of the property making it an attractive and popular venue. Having brought the business up to a strong trading level, the owners would now like to retire from the hospitality sector now presenting this superb opportunity to the market.
