A PUB and petrol station in Powys have been put on the market for a combined price of just under £1 million.

The Trout Inn, in Beulah, and adjacent petrol filling station, are available for a combined cost of £985,000.

Advertised on Right Move, the sale is being handled by Christie & Co and is described as a “unique opportunity” to acquire a freehold site that includes a petrol filling station, convenience store and public house.

The Trout Inn and filling station is ideally located on the side of the busy A483 which benefits from constant traffic, with Beulah situated 8 miles from the market town of Builth Wells and 4 miles from Llanwrtyd Wells.

Nestled in the heart of Mid Wales, Beulah lies in the shadow of the little explored Cambrian Mountains, whose hidden delights include the Devil’s Staircase and the Llyn Brianne Reservoir, with scenery rivalling that of the nearby Elan Valley.

In the property description, the pub is described as having been run by the current owners since 2014, with the petrol station acquired in 2019.
