Property Description

Full description

A rare opportunity in this sought after Coastal Village. Peppercorn Cage (built 2010) is a well presented daytime coastal licensed cafe extensive outside seating. The business has a secure renewable lease and consistent turnover and profits. Viewing recommended.


Location - Peppercorn Cafe is situated in a small former Farm Yard, known as Lynfield Yard, which houses a collection of small businesses, including, gift, art and of course Licensed catering. The yard is a short stroll from the beautiful beach at Perranuthnoe, which is also on the SW Coast Path and is bounded by fields. Perranuthnoe is situated in West Cornwall, to the east of Penzance and is an area which is widely regarded as a beautiful place to live and work. Business opportunities in this attractive coastal village are rare.

The Property - We understand the Cafe was purpose built in 2010, is single storey and has the design benefit of a vaulted ceiling, giving a feeling of space and light. It is considered the business may benefit from a side Conservatory extension, to make the most of the Countryside and far-reaching coast path and sea views. As a relatively modern property, the building is presented in very good order both internally and externally.

The Business - The Peppercorn Cafe has been trading since 2010 and has been in our clients tenure since February 2016, who are now selling due to other commitments away from this sector. The business trades all year (with some closure over Christmas and New Year) and is principally run by our two clients with some part time seasonal assistance. The business trades as a Licensed daytime cafe and operates 6 days per week (closed mondays), extending to 7 days in the peak summer season. The Alcohol licence is from 10 am to 11 pm (advised) and therefore there is scope for evening opening / events.

We are advised the turnover is in the region of £72,000 pa (no VAT applicable), which has an operating Gross Profit level as a percentage of 71% and which after all overheads produces an adjusted net profit attributable to our clients in the region of £30,000. Further accounting information will be made available to interested parties following a viewing. Further information regarding our clients business can be seen via their website
