Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This unique opportunity was established by the current owner in 2007. The property was designed and built from the ground up to offer a generous retail space as well as storage.

The business is located in Snettisham, a village in the county of Norfolk. It is located near the west coast of Norfolk, some 5 miles (8.0 km) south of the seaside resort of Hunstanton, 9 miles (14 km) north of the town of King's Lynn and 45 miles (72 km) north-west of the city of Norwich.

Snettisham RSPB reserve, on the coast of The Wash some 2 miles (3.2 km) to the west of Snettisham village, is a nature reserve in the care of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. It consists of bird lagoons and bird observation hides. The River Ingol runs to the south of the village, upon which stands the now unused Snettisham watermill. The area attracts many visitors to the area whether on a short or longer term basis, that the business enjoys the benefit from. There are many caravan sites within the area.

The business offers its customers a wide range of traditional garden lines including plants, trees, tools, accessories and machinery, as well as a thriving aquatic centre, offering both warm and cold water fish and all the required items including tanks, filters and foods. There are also a wide range of other pet accessories, gifts and books give customers a wide variety of choice.

The business also has a 50 cover café that is very popular with local customers, as well as passing trade. The café offers a traditional menu with breakfasts, lunches, sandwiches, cakes and hot and cold drinks. Customers can eat in or use the decked patio area.

The business also enjoys scope for potential growth including increasing the current retail area with planning permission that has previously been granted.

The business would also benefit from a full time owner operator within the business and a review of current lines stock to increase the turnover further.

This is a great opportu

Planning permission has previously been granted for the development of the outside retail space to be covered, increasing the internal space considerably.

Its location enjoys easy access next to the A149 that enjoys a high level of passing trade and local custom.

Within the outdoor area there is a self-contained wood constructed staff room/office space. The property also has a first floor that is currently used as storage, but could easily be an office space or an additional retail area with the correct plans and permission in place.

The substantial retail area is an ?L? shape with a 50 cover café, along with additional decked out-side seating and its own kitchen and preparation area which then leads through to the fancy goods and gifts area.

The main retail space as you enter the building has a sales counter and a wide range of garden tools, seeds, lawn mowers, fertilisers and other garden essentials. There is also an offering of selected food and soft drinks.

The pet food and accessories then leads on to the aquatic area, with a wide range of tropical and cold water fish and all accessories.
