This village pub was once the site of a rest stop for druids on their pilgrimage - and now it could be yours.

St Michael’s Mount Inn, in Barripper, dates back to the 18th century, and originally had an outbuilding on the site that was a resting place for druids and saints on their way to St Michael’s Mount, which in medieval times would have been a monastery.

The outbuilding no longer exists, but there are period features throughout the pub such as exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings.

In a Facebook post in February, the former owners of the inn announced that they were closing, due to “super high energy costs”. 

Entering the property, the entrance includes parquet flooring and leads to the main bar area, which is made up of a feature fireplace, upholstered bench seating, a 50-inch television and a marble top bar servery. 

Further into the inn is the lounge and pool table area, featuring open stone walls, and a dining area, which is capable of seating more than 50 people.

Completing the ground floor is a commercial kitchen, customer toilets and a beer cellar. 

Upstairs is the owners’ accommodation, comprising a sitting room, a kitchenette, a smoking room, four bedrooms and a bathroom. 

Outside, there is a small area with picnic benches, as well as a lawned garden area with shrubs.

The property is being sold by SBC Property for a leasehold price of £25,000.

The agent said: “The St Michael’s Mount Inn comprises a 19th century detached granite and stone construction under a pitched slate roof, with later additions to the side and rear. 

“There is also an enclosed beer garden and adjacent car parking.”
