The picturesque village of Lerryn lies along the River Lerryn in South East Cornwall where author Kenneth Grahame reputedly based the famous children's book 'The Wind in the Willows' or 'Tales of the Riverbank'. The place has a magical, tranquil quality and it is not hard to imagine Grahame sitting beneath the willows on the banks of the river Lerryn penning the stories.
We have just been instructed to market a portfolio of four business propositions (owned by Mr Nigel O'Brien) all in the heart of the village.
The package comprises of the Village Shop/Post office; two holiday apartments; a separate cottage and an old boat store (ripe for conversion, subject to Planning) with Village Green.
Head of our Business Transfer, Graham Timmins explains why this is such a rare instruction, not just because of Lerryn's scenic location, but also the nature of the businesses for sale. He says "this is a diverse business portfolio which could potentially provide three income streams. The cottage and holiday apartments have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard. The village shop, is the only one in Lerryn. Whilst The Old Boat House, which sits on the village green, has historic Planning Consent to be converted into a café or tearooms. I would expect a buyer to have a connection with the village perhaps, like the present owner, someone who has made their money in another industry and is looking to return to the area for quality of life".
