Atlantic Forge is situated in the pretty and sizeable village of Mullion, on the Lizard Peninsula, the far South West of Cornwall. Mullion is a sought-after location which has a historic feel with some more modern houses and buildings. There is a secondary school, primary school, a range of shops and public house etc.

The Lizard Peninsula is well known for its dramatic landscape and beaches, several of which are close to Mullion, namely Polurrian and Poldhu, making this a wonderful location to holiday and live.


The detached two story property dates back to the 17th century, which had a later first floor extension, to form the owners accommodation in 2007.

The ground floor comprises 112 sq m (1250 sq f) of retail space/stores and with separate access is the sizeable two bedroom apartment on the first floor.

The flat is extremely well presented and provides comfortable living. The retail space is well laid out and large enough to house a very wide range of merchandise.


We understand a business has traded on this site since the 1930s and has been in our clients tenure since 2007. The business is concerned with the sale of seasonal gifts and beach wear/equipment, most notably wetsuits and through our clients choice typically trades Easter through to the end of October, with opening hours of 9 am to 6 pm, seven days per week in the peak season. There is of course scope to extend the season should an interested party wish to do so.

The business is run by our husband and wife clients, plus 2 part-time member of staff in the summer months.

The turnover for the year end March 2019 show net sales (after VAT) of £113,691, with a Gross Profit level of 43.4% and an adjusted net profit of £37,368.

Our clients do not have a website, but do have Social Media. This is a very appealing seasonal business with scope to expand and offers a comfortable lifestyle income.
