Description Beck Steps Gift Shop could hardly be better positioned than in very heart of Grasmere, the epitome of the beautiful Lake District National Park.
Grasmere is a popular all year round tourist destination whether those visitors are arriving individually to enjoy the beautiful scenery, fells and lake shore walks or by the coach load to sample the delights of this traditional Lakeland village or as an educational party. There is plenty of footfall at Beck Steps particularly as there is short stay car parking available immediately in front of the building, beyond which is the pretty village green. There are more substantial public car parks to either side in this bustling centre of tourist activity.

There is superb potential here in such a prominent position which presents a perfect opportunity for an enthusiastic couple in an ideal setting. The lease does not permit the sale of articles of outdoor clothing or equipment but there is plenty of scope to expand or extend the business.

All in all this is a superb opportunity not to be missed.

Continue through the village, passing St Oswald's Church and following the road round to the village green. College Street is the first street on the right just after the bus stop and Beck Steps Gift Shop can be found on the left hand side facing the village green with short stay parking immediately in front.
