Another freehold acquisition for Young's
The Huntsman of Brockenhurst brings Young’s rooms to 831.
Young & Co. has acquired a fourth freehold pub from Marston’s and its first in the New Forest, Hampshire.
The Huntsman of Brockenhurst joins the now 831 bedroom-strong Young’s Rooms collection, spread across 41 pubs.
The purchase follows the recent acquisitions of Marston’s pubs with rooms The White Lion in Tenterden and The White Hart in Ford, as well as The Libertine pub in Westbourne.
"Following our recent acquisitions of three freehold Marston’s pubs earlier this year, The Huntsman offers us a fantastic opportunity for growth in an area where Young’s is yet to have a geographical presence," says Simon Dodd, CEO of Young's. "The Huntsman is a traditional country inn steeped in history, which matches Young’s expansion strategy to celebrate British pubs with heritage, and we will be working closely with the excellent team to further develop their premium food, drink and rooms offering at the pub."
Located on Lyndhurst Road, The Huntsman of Brockenhurst dates back to the 18th century and features a bar, dining area, covered outdoor terrace and large garden, along with 13 boutique bedrooms, including nine in a converted former stable block.
Spanning across London and the south of England, Young’s now operates 231 pubs.
