Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Mossdale Service Station is ideally located in a desirable trading position on the busy A6, between the villages of Hale and Yealand Conyers in South Cumbria. The site has a particularly wide frontage and extends to approximately 1 acres. The business benefits from much passing trade as the A6 trunk road is the main link to the southern lakes. The property is surrounded by outstanding scenery and boasts stunning views. Mossdale Service Station lies approximately 3.5 miles south of Milnthorpe and 5 miles north of Carnforth.

Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this multi-faceted service station, which includes fuel filling station, convenience store and potential restaurant. The site was purpose built by Esso in 1945 and has been in our clients' careful hands since 1990. The Premier branded convenience store generates a very high turnover with an excellent gross profit, while the Esso branded fuel sales are approximately 3.5 million litres per annum. There is a 2-storey property on site, which has spacious 3 bedroom living accommodation and a 100-cover restaurant area. At present the restaurant is not trading but it could easily be reinstated and would suit a wide variety of cuisines. A new owner could operate the restaurant themselves or lease it out. There is a large forecourt parking area with potential for a wide variety of other commercial uses such as caravan sales or similar, should a new owner wish. The convenience store is fitted and equipped to a high standard and we are advised that there is the internal configuration to expand the sales area if desired. We feel this represents a unique opportunity to acquire a thriving business with immense scope for future growth. Only by viewing can the true potential of this business and property be fully understood. Early discussions with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
