A GREAT BUSINESS, IN AN AFFLUENT VILLAGE
The Swan is an attractive opportunity to operate in an affluent Village in Bedfordshire. Cranfield is a well respected Village with a world famous University. The site was refurbished in 2015 and is a dog friendly, community focused Pub. Cranfield is surrounded by large towns, so by nailing the food offer and driving it forward, you could make the Swan a true ‘destination’ venue. There are also three en suite letting rooms which could be utilised further and sport on TV is a key attraction for local residents. With these revenue streams, the opportunity to grow this business is vast and offers a truly exciting opportunity, which Greene King will support you and your team along the way, to achieve new heights
Cranfield is located in the North West of Bedfordshire, between Bedford and Milton Keynes. The Swan has a great catchment area to draw customers from; Newport Pagnell, Milton Keynes & Bedford are all less than a fifteen minute drive. The area is known for its world respected University, Technology Centre and Aerospace Centre. The village also has its own private airfield which used to be a working RAF training airfield. The Nature Park and walking/cycling trails are only a couple of minutes walk from the Swan which is situated in the centre of the village next to the church and the village hall. The village also has several other businesses including a supermarket, an estate agent, accountancy firm, a second wet led pub, an Indian restaurant and a hairdresser
