THE LOCATION Heather's Coffee Shop and the house are centrally located in the village of Pendeen. The village itself is in the heart of 'wild Cornwall' with moors and Carnes inland and stunning un-touched coastline on the other. The property sits on the B3306 which links St Ives to Sennen and Lands End; this road was once voted the most scenic in Europe and boasts dramatic twists and turns across some of Cornwall's finest and most inspirational landscapes. The village of Pendeen itself boasts an array of amenities including a well renowned Primary School, two excellent public houses, convenience store, fish & chip shop and other craft shops and cafes. Geevor Tin Mine is just down the road and has proven one of the most popular tourist destinations in the county in recent years through its detailed portrayal of mining life. As opposed to some Cornish villages there is a local feel to Pendeen in the sense that it is 'lived-in' all year round and the owner describes her integration into the community as one of the most uplifting experiences since she moved here in 2010. 

THE PROPERTY A substantial stone built detached residence which has been intelligently and carefully renovated to the highest standards to create a superb family home with business attached. The house is a five double bedroom, two reception room, three bathroom property which retains original character and mixes perfectly with modern high specification living. There is much to please here with panoramic sea views, tessellated tiled floors, wood burners with granite surrounds, exposed timber pitched ceilings and a stunning George Robinson kitchen which adds to the 'wow' of the open plan living space. Practicality is more than adequate here too; the house benefitting from recently fitted double glazed Anglian windows, under-floor heating and off road parking being available with the reconfiguration of the current café outdoor seating. There are two beautiful areas of garden which both face south/west and so enjoy afternoon and evening sun; added to that are several renovated outbuildings, one useful as a store for café items and two others complete with light and power. This is a very special home which has been cared for and loved by the current owner and comes very highly recommended for internal viewing. 

THE BUSINESS The current owner fulfilled her life-long dream to open a café in Cornwall and has run this successfully for a number of years. Described by the locals as a "hub of the community" and very highly rated on Trip Advisor as 5* the daytime café served breakfasts, light lunches, cakes, hot and cold drinks and managed to cater for both holidaymakers in season but remained busy through the winter months because of a loyal and strong local presence. As well as visiting tourists who returned year on year, local groups such as the 'Pendeen knitting club' used the café regularly, as well as parents on the school run, bird watchers, coastal path walkers, cyclists and the owner tells us that people as far as an hours drive away used to visit the area and always incorporate a visit to the café to re-fuel! The café opened six days a week and achieved a turnover in the region of £75,000 per year however there is a real opportunity for expansion here also. Possibly to apply for evening opening hours and offer a restaurant, to let rooms from the house (one of which has its own entrance) for B&B and to expand the café outdoor seating further into the garden and incorporate the outbuildings as lettable workshops, always in high demand in this area to one of the many people in the talented arts and crafts community. The owner has now retired so the café is no longer open but is being sold to any prospective buyer 'ready to open the door' with a fully fitted commercial kitchen, coffee machine, till, furniture, crockery and cutlery.
