Location From our office in Ambleside head north on the A591 to Grasmere passing Rydal Water and Grasmere Lake along the way. Upon reaching the roundabout take the first exit into the village. Continue through the village, passing on your right St Oswald's Church and The Gingerbread Shop. The Old Bakery can be found a little further towards the centre of the village on your right hand side just after Trespass, the outdoor clothing store.  

Description Locations simply do not come much better than this. The Lake District attracts an estimated 15 million visitors each year, and there will be relatively few of them who do not pass through or visit the pretty Lakeland village of Grasmere, famed the world over for its literary connections with William Wordsworth and the romantic poets. The Lake District National Park is now a Unesco World Heritage Site which will surely attract even further tourist visitors each year.

The Old Bakery is very prominently placed on the main thoroughfare through the centre of the village and yet it also makes a wonderful place to live for those perhaps considering a lifestyle change.

The recently refurbished double fronted café enjoys an almost 9 meter frontage, with potential to provide seating outside too, subject to any necessary consents being obtained, and already provides 30 covers inside, although we believe that this could actually be increased. The commercial kitchen is well equipped with a whole host of modern stainless steel fittings and equipment and there are modern ladies and gents wc facilities all on the ground floor.

The self contained apartment is located on the first floor with separate access at the rear and has been a successful holiday let in the past but would equally suit as a wonderful permanent home with bright and spacious accommodation. The living room is dual aspect with lovely views, there is an excellent kitchen, two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom. A ladder from the living room leads up via a hatch to two further attic rooms, which appear to have been utilised as occasional bedrooms in the past, and may offer the potential to further extend the living space here if desired and subject to any necessary consents being obtained.

Freehold opportunities such as this are very rare in this part of the world, and this attractive proposition will appeal to both investors and owner occupiers alike - so don't miss out - book a viewing and come and see for yourself.
