Dalgarven House Hotel is situated in the small settlement of Dalgarven, on the outskirts of the town of Kilwinning in North Ayrshire. The subjects are also located off the A737 Dalry Road from Kilwinning to Paisley and connects Glasgow to Ayr. Kilwinning has a population of approximately 22,000 and the wider catchment area takes in the towns of Irvine, Stevenston, Saltcoats, Ardrossan and Dalry, in the North Ayrshire Council region. The largest town in the wider area is that of Kilmarnock, approximately 13 miles south east, the 15th most populated location in Scotland and the second largest town in Ayrshire, with a population of approximately 46,500. The hotel benefits from good road network links from Glasgow to Ayr and the west coast, including Ardrossan (Ferry Terminal).
Specifically, the subjects are located in an attractive country and riverside location, backing immediately onto the River Garnock. Dalgarven Mill Museum of Country Life and Costume is located opposite the subjects, a very short distance away and Kilwinning town is in the immediate vicinity.

The Dalgarven House Hotel provides a great opportunity for an owner operator to purchase a great hotel premises with bar, restaurant and function suite. Historically, the Dalgarven House Hotel was a popular function and wedding venue and, in our opinion, there is great opportunity for a new operator to develop a good level of sales from mixed income streams. Under new operation and with refurbishment, the subjects could be one of the best function and licensed businesses in the area.
The subjects are on a good-sized site with development potential. Historically, planning consent has been approved for alterations and an extension to form a further dining room, two additional bedrooms and the erection of a manager’s dwelling house.
The premises are placed on the market at offers over £425,000 for the benefit of the heritable interest, including fixtures and fittings. This is a substantial discount to the relatively recent price paid for the asset in 2016 of £625,000.
