Key features


Full description

Well positioned ice cream and gifts business situated in the ever-popular Port Isaac. Subject to significant improvement and investment in recent years and being sold with the residue of a new 6 year Lease. Ideal seasonal lifestyle opportunity.

Location - The Ice Cream Parlour is situated in a prominent trading location opposite the Old School, on the principal vehicular and pedestrian thoroughfare into the ever popular harbour village of Port Isaac in North Cornwall. Port Isaac has experienced significant interest in recent years due to the popularity of the Doc Martin series, which is filmed on location and is a very popular destination.

Notwithstanding the success of the television series, Port Isaac is an extremely attractive harbour with a number of niche retailers, eating establishments and of course has the harbour, beach and the coastal footpath.

The Property/Business - Our client currently operates the Ice Cream Parlour and also the adjacent takeaway fish and chip shop business and is now selling the Ice Cream Parlour due to the other business commitments in the Takeaway.

We understand the business has traded on this site for the past circa 28 years and the Ice Cream Parlour has traded for the past circa 4 years, operates principally on a seasonal business, i.e. March through to October and is ideally suited for two persons working in the business with some part time assistance in the peak summer months.

During our client's tenure the property has been subject to considerable updating and improvement and is in our opinion extremely well presented with double frontage to two sides and, as principally mentioned, enjoys very high visibility either entering or leaving the village.

The retail areas comprise circa 380 sqft and have a shared staff wc (with the Takeaway via a connecting door) and will also have a shared connection in terms of services for water and sewage.

In terms of the equipment of particular note is the recent significant investment in the Flavor Burst soft serve ice cream machine.

In terms of the trade we are advised the Ice Cream Parlour has a turnover for the year end March 2016 in the region of circa £83,000 per annum. Further accounting information will be made available subject to a viewing appointment in the normal manner.
