Merriwa is a delightful Upper Hunter Valley town situated halfway between Newcastle and Dubbo. A town rich in many architectural gems, outdoor and cultural attractions including boutique wineries, markets and festivals. Easy access to the Goulburn River National Park, which is just 22kms south-west of Merriwa.
This successful business is currently run by husband and wife team operating to suit their lifestyle, there is huge potential to increase turnover if trading hours were increased as there is a heavy demand for quality accommodation in Merriwa. Regretful sale due to genuine health reason.
An absolute MUST-SEE property to appreciate this magnificent building and business.
