LOCATION
The premises are located in the medieval village of Dunster within Exmoor National Park famous for the National Trust 11th Century Dunster Castle and the Old Yarn Market in the centre of the High Street.
Throughout the year Dunster is a magnet for day-trippers and there are a number of events that occur including Dunster by Candlelight at Christmas time and Days Gone By celebrations.
The village has a host of boutique shops, local artisans and craft shops, as well as restaurants and public houses. There are believed to be over 200 listed buildings in Dunster and Hathaways Restaurant is indeed a Grade II Listed building.

THE PROPERTY
Hathaways Restaurant is a mid-terraced character 16th Century cottage that has been tastefully converted and used as a busy licensed restaurant in recent years. The property offers on the ground floor the main restaurant and overflow restaurant - the second area could easily be used as an additional retail outlet or as present as a private owner's dining room. Also on the ground floor is a customer cloakroom, stockroom and fully fitted newly installed bespoke commercial kitchen. There are two staircases to the first floor where further accommodation provides 3 bedrooms (one now being used as a lounge) and a bathroom with WC. In addition the owner has converted a store into a private kitchen with a spiral staircase upstairs to an en-suite bedroom. This cottage can be used as a relative's small home or even let as a holiday cottage providing additional income.
The property fronts on to the main street and to the rear is a 3-tier garden one lower lawn interspersed by a central patio and decking to the upper two thirds of gently sloping lawned garden for ease of maintenance and the very valuable benefit of a double car port plus space for additional parking.

THE BUSINESS
Our clients have been operating the business for the last 14 years as a very successful evening only licensed restaurant opening during the busy summer months 6 evenings a week and providing an income which is just under the VAT level (£75,000 per annum). In the past the turnover has been £240,000 per annum. This business could be continued or alternatively a discerning purchaser may wish to utilise the property for another commercial operation such as a retail shop or craft shop or any other purpose, subject to any relevant planning permission that may be required.
For those seeking to buy the business as a going concern, it would be offered subject to a trade inventory and accounts will be available to those seriously interested parties who have inspected the premises. It should be noted that any stock must be purchased for an additional sum at valuation.
