Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This traditional tea room is located in an historic part of Barnstaple on the northern outskirts in the centre of Pilton Street which is about half a mile from Barnstaple Town Centre.

The community is extremely popular, it has approximately 2000 inhabitants and also near-by is Pilton Community College and Blue Coats Primary School. There is a pleasant village community and indeed is popular every year for staging the traditional 'Green Man' festival when the street is turned into a Country Fayre atmosphere.

Within the street there is a general store, in fact next door to this property, and a public house and other commercial operators as well as attractive cottages and private houses with, at the head of the street, is the parish Church.

The town of Barnstaple is a popular and expanding community being the main commercial of North Devon having a population of 27,500 inhabitants and attracts holiday makers throughout the year and therefore this business benefits from local customers as well as the influx of tourists during the busy summer months.

This is a delightful terraced cottage style property being deceptively spacious as the accommodation offers the main tea room and overflow tea room on the ground floor together with a kitchen to the rear and customer cloakroom and beyond this a delightful patio tea garden. To the first floor is the main accommodation approached either from the rear internal staircase in the kitchen or from the rear external staircase from the patio. There is an open plan hallway/dining room area, private bathroom/wc, open plan lounge and private bedroom and to the third floor 2 spacious attic bedrooms with Velux windows. The property benefits from gas fired radiator central heating and has been well cared for by the present owners and is worthy of your consideration and viewing to avoid disappointment.

This is traditional tea room and tea garden offering a full range of menu including breakfasts, freshly made sandwiches, freshly baked baguettes, homemade soups, homemade quiche, pate, salad, jacket potatoes with salads, cheese on toast, ploughmans, homemade cakes and scones, traditional cream teas and a full range of beverages (the property is not licensed). Therefore the business covers a full range of menu and is extremely popular with local customers.

This business is operated by the owners who have established the trade and built up a good customer base. The takings amount to between 300-350 per week on a very low key basis. Opening for day time lunches (never evening by choice). Accounts will be made available to those seriously interested parties who have inspected the property, there is a huge potential to develop the trade further.
