Cubert is an extremely attractive village on the North Cornish coast, which has an historic 14th Century church, a bakery, Village Post Office and Stores and is within easy commuting distance of Newquay, Truro and is close to several very popular surfing beaches.

The Property/business

Formerly the village blacksmith’s, The Anvil is centrally located within the heart of Cubert, is an attractive cottage style property arranged over two floors, which has been extended to the rear to provide the kitchen and cellar etc and its modest exterior belies the internal size. The Anvil has many period features including exposed ceiling beams, stone walls and has much character.

As one enters the property, there are tables and chairs and a welcoming entrance, providing circa 40 covers, leading to a built-in bar servery, leading to a darts area, ladies and gents wc’s and to the rear a well-equipped commercial kitchen and cellar. With internal access and also with separate access from the side is the sizable 3 bedroomed owners flat, with bath/shower and large lounge, kitchen and dining area with sunroom off which provides far reaching views over the immediate village and towards the sea.

In terms of the business we are advised the Anvil has changed hands once in 50 years and has always enjoyed a very wide local following. We understand the turnover for the year end April 2014 was in the region of £165,000 (gross). The Anvil achieved circa 70% wet sales and 30% dry sales.
