Full description


A substantial property comprising of a restaurant and bistro on the ground floor with a spacious 3 bedroomed apartment on the first floor. This is a great place to live and work and the living accommodation is particularly impressive.

The property is situated in the picturesque old town just a few metres from the historic Town Mill complex - a project to reinstate the water mill and associated mill machinery (open to the public and attracting an increasing number of visitors each year). The remaining mill buildings were converted to a shop, galleries with regular and popular art exhibitions, 17th Century garden, pottery, microbrewery and cheese monger and craft studios.

Mill Lane is part of a charming riverside walk alongside the River Lym and Leper's Well Gardens. The main shopping street (Broad Street) and seafront are only a short level walk away.

In addition to the main holiday season there are an increasing number of visitors (especially at weekends) throughout the year and this is being enhanced by the designation of the coastline as a World Heritage Site (known as the "Jurassic Coast") and Lyme Regis a "Gateway Town".

The Millside Restaurant is long established with the present owners building up an excellent reputation for great food and wines. It is to be sold fully equipped as a going concern (inventory to be supplied). Accounts can be made available to seriously interested applicants having viewed the property. There is also a successful website and an excellent Twitter and Facebook following ,

The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away.
