A rare opportunity to own and operate the Mt Somers Tavern. My clients are selling the land, buildings and business after 7 years. The property is ideally located in an area that attracts hikers, mountain bikers, fisherman, hunters and tourist to the breathtaking landscape of middle earth.

Private owners residence offering 4 bedrooms, living area, large kitchen & laundry facilities. There is also an option to convert 2 rooms into B&B accommodation including a sleepout attached to the back the garage.

The Tavern has a bottle store off the main bar at the front of the property for takeaways.
