Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Brookside Café & Restaurant is a substantial detached property, built just 16 years ago in the style of a Victorian Villa.

The property benefits from a spacious open plan trade area, modern catering facilities with further external trade space for alfresco dining. There is a plentiful private car park. In addition, the property includes a light and airy apartment.


Bovey Tracey is an attractive town nestling in the foothills of South East Dartmoor, six miles from Newton Abbot. The town is known as the gateway to Dartmoor, and is ideally located for exploring the southern edge of the national park. The town itself enjoys continuous year round trade with the added influx of tourism during the summer months, with the business itself enjoying a prominent location on the town’s main street.

Bovey Tracey can be easily accessed by the A38 from Exeter and the M5. The town is attractively placed in the River Bovey Valley which lies within 20 minutes of the South Devon coast with Exeter approximately 11 miles north west.

Internal Details

Open plan restaurant, seating for circa 85 with central counter servery.

Fully fitted commercial kitchen, walk in cold room, large store room and a boiler room.

Letting Accommodation

Accessed via a private stairway from the rear of the property, the apartment includes a master en suite bedroom, two further double bedrooms, an open plan lounge diner, separate kitchen/ diner and family bathroom.

The apartment has been previously let out on an assured shorthold tenancy for £795 per calendar month.

External Details

Lawned and patioed gardens located to the front and side of the property, seating for 80 + covers.

Tarmacked car park with space for c.18 cars.

Private lawned garden, incorporating a large storage shed.

Owner's Accommodation

The owners do not live on site and therefore the self contained apartment has been let out to generate additional income. Alternatively the apartment would make excellent living accommodation for new owners.

The Opportunity

Brookside cafe and restaurant represents a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to take over a day time only business in this much sought after market town with a thriving all year round trade with a boost from visitors during the summer months. The business has established itself with an excellent reputation, which is highlighted by its 4.5 star rating on TripAdvisor.

The business offers potential to further develop the income, this could be done by extending the opening hours into the evening. Also, the current owners do not both work full time within the business, so there may be an opportunity to further increase profits with a more hands on owner operator partnership.

Since re-opening in early July 2020, our client's trade has increased by a gross of 26% and this is partly due to the increased visitors to the West Country, as well as being considered to be the most covid secure restaurant in the area with plenty of space both internally and externally.

Further information can be found on the business website:


The business operates with a manager and assistant manager in place, plus a team of full and part time kitchen and front of house staff.
