Full description

A well positioned and substantial retail premises with 5 bedroom owners accommodation in St Merryn, close to several beaches and Padstow. This property, with its extensive accommodation, could have its retail area extended or be converted into Bed and Breakfast accommodation.

Location - Baywest is situated in the popular North Cornish village of St Merryn, which is close to Padstow and Constantine Bay and carries the motto "Seven Bays for Seven Days", referring to its many bays and beaches in the immediate vicinity. As such, St Merryn is a very popular location for holiday makers, given the proliferation of beaches, campsites, hotels and holiday homes in the area. St Merryn is approximately 1.2 miles from the attractive and very popular beach at Harlyn Bay, which is approximately 1.2 miles distant.

St Merryn centres around the busy crossroads, which has several shops, restaurants, petrol station, Public House and of course Baywest, making this a very prominent and visible premises.

Property And Business - We understand the substantial premises date back to circa late 1920's/early 1930's and comprises an impressive substantial building arranged over three floors, with a large loft which may be suitable for conversion (subject to relevant permissions). Currently the premises comprise circa 420 sqft of retail space, with a separate store and has historically been concerned with the sale of surfing products (wetsuits, rash vests, gifts and confectionary etc), although, we are advised our clients would offer the business with vacant possession if so required, in terms of stock etc.

We understand a business has traded on this site for the past circa 70 to 80 years, has been in our client's tenure for the past 12 years, who are now selling to to other commitments.

As mentioned, the business has historically been concerned on a seasonal business with the sale of beach related products, however it is considered the premises are adequately suitable for alternative retail products and our clients would consider an offer based on the non-transfer of the business.

Given the size of the property and its location it is considered the premises could be converted into bed and breakfast accommodation, or the ground floor to be enlarged to provide a greater retail space.
