LOCATION
The premises are located directly in the centre of this highly popular tourist destination in the heart of the Lake District national park. Ambleside is a highly popular town benefiting from all year round visitors trade. In particular these premises enjoy excellent footfall and the village itself is highly popular due to the superb local scenery and its local connection to Lakeland poets like William Wordsworth.

DESCRIPTION

The current business sells homemade luxury fudge, confectionary and general gifts with an excellent profit or approximately 60% on many elements.
