Chartered surveyors and business valuation experts Graham and Sibbald are handling the sale of the historic inn.

They said that the business represents a “rare opportunity to acquire an established and well-known village inn”.

It offers seven letting bedrooms, a restaurant, a function room and an outdoor terrace.

Alistair Letham, a hotel consultant with Graham and Sibbald, commented: “The Border Hotel is undoubtedly one of these quintessential village inns that exudes its own particular character in a lovely village green setting.

“Add to that the hotel’s links with both the Pennine Way and the St Cuthbert’s Way walking routes, the hotel is a natural stopping off point for those walking by! The Border Hotel is super business for owner operators.”

Among other accolades, the Border Hotel was named the small events hotel of the year at the 2020 Scottish Hotel Awards.
