Blue Rose Tea Rooms is found in Penrith, Cumbria.

The café is located in the historic town centre on the main street with the town centre square in view. There is excellent free car parking to the front of the business which is perfect for regular customers and tourists if they want to take the food away. The town is known for its repeat trade and high footfall due to thriving businesses in the area.

The main bus route to the business is 2 minute walk from the business and Penrith also has a railway station is a short walk and drive away from the property.

Hilton Smythe is proud to present to the market Blue Rose Tea Rooms.

The well-loved local café is known for its homemade cakes, pastries and traditional cream teas. The business has been established from this year has quickly become a popular eatery but now he has reluctantly decided to sell due to other interests he would like to pursue. The business has a good reputation in the area and serves breakfast and lunch to eat in or takeaway. The business also has a Facebook page which is posted onto regularly with daily deals, new additions to the menu and pictures of newly baked cakes.

The café also sells locally produced ice cream which has been a hit with the residents and tourists in summer. The business is currently generating a projected turnover of £78,000 per annum and we feel that the business could improve this turnover by possibly extending opening hours to a Sunday, perhaps getting a website set up so customers that don't use social media can also keep updated and a delivery service to local residents and businesses.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business premise is a single - fronted terraced property on a busy retail parade.

The premise has excellent artistic signage that makes the business stand out on the high street with 8 covers that are placed directly outside, as you walk into the beautifully decorated café and tea room which has been decorated by our client in a traditional blue and while décor with ultra-modern counter and serving counter. The 30 tables and chairs are placed on wooden laminate flooring. The premise itself is large and is home to shelving and chillers that hold biscuits, crisps, drinks, pies and homemade cakes.
