Rare chance to run ancient pub.

ONE of the oldest pubs in Wales is being offered for letting by real estate advisers Colliers International.

Tye Mawr, located in the village of Gwyddelwern near Corwen, dates back to 1081 and features a host of medieval and other historic features The Grade II-listed building was originally a priest house where pilgrims and other travellers were offered refuge and lodging by local priests.

Over the centuries, the building was extended and the main structure standing today dates from between 1386 and 1572 After being modernised in 1870, Tye Mawr resembled a large Victorian inn with pebble-dash and mortar concealing its original and historic features and character.

Current owner Gavin Morgan acquired the property in 1999 when it was known as the Rose & Crown and undertook extensive renovation to return it to its former glory.

Mr Morgan is looking to let the pub to concentrate on other business ventures.

Colin Siebert, director, licensed and leisure at the Manchester office of Colliers International, has been instructed to let Tye Mawr and said the Royal Commission for Ancient Buildings had described it as one of the most important early storied buildings He said: "We feel truly privileged to be instructed to find a suitable tenant for this magnificent building. Whilst the ground floor bar/dining area and first floor restaurant displays all its medieval grandeur and character to provide a memorable dining and drinking experience it has a modern catering kitchen and quality facilities, ideal for licensed use."
