Property Brochure PDF Location Map


Marchant is situated in the arcade, which is home to a small collection of independent shops enjoying a prominent trading location as one enters St Mawes, adjacent to the main car park. St Mawes itself requires little introduction as one of the County’s most beautiful coastal villages, situated on The Roseland Peninsula. The St Mawes ferry carries passengers to and from the nearby town of Falmouth which is renowned for its Castle, beautiful beaches and Maritime Museum.


With a retail sales area extending to approximately 335Sq.Ft., Marchant benefits from glazed frontage onto the arcade and use of the space immediately to the front of the shop for additional display purposes.
The business offers a beautiful range of luxury gifts and homewares and designer childrens’ clothing from brands such as ‘Frugi’, ‘Kite’, Spanish designers ‘Batella’ and ‘little Cotton Clothes’, (whose ‘quintessentially English’ designs have been a recent choice for Princess Charlotte).

Due to our clients family commitments, Marchant is only open from 11am – 3pm and alternate Saturdays between February Half Term and October Half term, with sporadic weekend opening during the winter months.

The business is run with the assistance of one member of additional staff for one day a week during the summer months.

It is considered that the business sales could be significantly increased by extending the current opening hours and by further expanding the products range.

Trading accounts for the year ending 31st March 2018 show sales of £60,070 with an adjusted net profit of £13,211, (after making the usual adjustments for non essential wages, motor expenses and amortisation).

The Accommodation Comprises
