SUPERB LOCAL FREEHOLD PROPERTY FOR SALE - Guide Price 789,950 - 825,000. Turnover in excess of 200,000, 80+ covers. Substantial detached mixed residential & commercial property with stunning views out to sea, spacious 3 bedroom accommodation, large private rear garden & great potential.

THE BUSINESS (GROUND FLOOR)
AN EVER SO SPACIOUS TEA ROOM / GIFT SHOP / FUNCTIONS VENUE
Coastguards Tearoom is ideally located along Coastguard Lane in Fairlight, right near to Hastings Country Park and providing stunning views of the coast and countryside. The business occupies the entire ground floor and residential accommodation is located on the first floor with a separate entrance outside.

Established in 2008, this business has a fantastic reputation with local residents and regular daily visitors resulting in high levels of repeat customers and strong word-of-mouth, this can be seen online among the many full-star reviews on Google and other websites. There are over 80 covers located in the tea room, split between 4 specific areas including the large open tea room area, the modern sea view sun lounge overlooking the rear garden, the smaller quiet area to the front of the property and the generous outdoor seating area to the front of the property. We have personally viewed the business accounts and can see that turnover has been increasing strongly year-on-year and is circa 200,000 with a very healthy profit margin.

GROWTH
There are numerous ideas to grow this business to an even higher level of turnover, the obvious and easy choice being to extend the outside seating into the beautiful rear garden, which is at-least 80ft in length and would provide a huge amount of extra seating and outdoor opportunities such as a kids play area. Other ideas could include later opening hours, the current owner operates the business daily between 9am and approximately 6pm, there is an alcohol licence, which allows for later opening hours and this is something that could do very well in the local area. This detail also makes the premises ideal for functions including weddings, birthday parties and wakes.

The menu on offer includes breakfasts, lunches, hot and cold snacks, homemade cakes, beverages, ice creams, speciality teas, coffees and gluten free options. There is no direct competition in the area and a regular flow of new customers including tourists, walkers, dog-walkers and local residents. The Tearoom also offers a small and profitable sales line with a choice of gifts and souvenirs, knitting wools, craft supplies, accessories and paintings from local artists. This is an area that could also be increased, a proportion of the property could be dedicated to retail sales as there is plenty of overall space and local demand for retail products. Fairlight is a village close to Hastings and is 5 miles away from Rye and the ever so popular Camber Sands. The business is operated by the current owner with the assistance of 1 full time member of staff and additional part time staff as and when required.
