Looking to run this pub?

Situated on a main road in a small village in rural County Durham, the Black Bull is a community mainstream pub that also offers a suite of 4 letting rooms. It’s popular with locals and also benefits from tourist trade in the summer months, when people visit from the local caravan parks and walkers and cyclists choose to stay in the guest rooms.

With a traditional look and feel, the Black Bull has a small bar to one side and a larger lounge, used as a dining area, to the other side. These are both serviced by one long ‘walk-through’ bar. The small but well-equipped kitchen can provide for up to 25 covers at full capacity, and the pub has free WiFi provided throughout. Outside, there’s a paved area around the front entrance with benches and a larger paved beer garden to the rear, complete with a smoking solution.

About the local area

The Black Bull is located on a main road in the small village of Wolsingham, which sits on the River Wear and is surrounded by other villages and farming community. Durham city centre is about 25 minutes’ drive away. Wolsingham’s location on the Cleveland Way at the edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty means that the pub attracts plenty of walkers and cyclists.

Ideal Operator

Ideal for a local operator with knowledge of good quality pub food and experience in driving letting room sales.


The second-floor domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
