Potential Development / Business Opportunity

On the market for the first time in almost 40 years and set in the most stunning location at the top of Buncombe Hill is the site of the renowned Pines Café which was sadly destroyed by fire in 2019. The Pines was a well known local landmark which had been popular as a café since the last war, but also incorporated what was originally a 4 bedroomed bungalow.

TENURE
The land is of freehold tenure with vacant possession upon completion of the purchase.

SITUATION
Situated in the heart of the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with stunning views over surrounding countryside yet within 5.7 miles of the centre of Taunton and 7.2 miles to Bridgwater.

HISTORY
When the army was stationed on the Quantocks during the Second World War, the then occupant started serving light snacks and from that the Café became a firm favourite with walkers and cyclists. Later, the site was used in addition for car repairs and in the late 70’s when the current owners took occupation, the café was further developed into a restaurant and there was a separate business trading in antiques.

VIEWING
The site may be viewed during daylight hours by appointment only. Due to the fact that the building itself has been severely damaged by fire, it is extremely unsafe and should not be entered UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Please be aware that Robert Cooney accepts no responsibility or liability for any non-compliance.
