DESCRIPTION
DESCRIPTION

The Gift Shop is a profitable lifestyle business situated in the heart of the popular village of Reeth in Swaledale.

Reeth is a historic village with a protected village green, a good range of shops and pubs, a primary school, church, village hall & medical centre. There is a weekly market and a thriving, active community. It is only 8 miles to the market town of Leyburn and is less than 30 minutes from the A1 at Richmond. The village is on a range of walks including Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk, the Inn Way and close to other well known walks such as The Pennine Way and The Herriot Way.

On the ground floor there is a good-sized shop fronting onto the cobbles looking over the village green. Steps lead up to a side entrance to the property, excellent sized catering/storage area and single bedroom or study. On the lower ground floor there is a cool and dry cellar ideal for storage.

The first floor consists of a dining kitchen, double bedroom, house bathroom and sitting room. The sitting room was formerly used as both a cafe area and gallery space. It is light and spacious and benefits from panoramic views across the village green towards Fremington Edge and Lower Swaledale. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms, both with glorious views. Outside, at the front of the property, there is space on the cobbles for several picnic tables.

The business has been actively developed by the current owners and shows very healthy accounts to support business lending. In addition to a gift shop the business functions as a village shop selling an array of products from newspapers, alcohol and sweets to ice creams and freshly made sandwiches. Whilst the accounts are consistently profitable there is ample scope to expand the business, if desired. For instance, the catering/food side of the business could be further developed by utilising the ice-cream making equipment in the catering area or using the first floor sitting room as a tearoom (subject to planning).

Viewing is recommended for those wishing to have a business in the Dales and to become an integral part of a thriving community.
