A RARE FREEHOLD OPPORTUNITY
EPC RATING: E103

Location

The Five Pilchards is situated at the seaward end of the village of Porthallow, an attractive coastal village on the Lizard Peninsula. The village has a number of traditional cottages and housing and has views towards Falmouth and St Mawes. Approximately 2 miles from St Keverne, which has a primary school, convenience store and Church.

The nearest town is Helston, which has a range of national and niche retailers, primary and secondary education.

The Property

We are advised The Five Pilchards can be traced back to at least the 1830’s and is steeped in history, which is abundant upon entering the premises, including the wonderful display of nautical artefacts. A full inventory of the loose chattels and equipment to be conveyed will be prepared by Miller Commercial prior to exchange of contracts.

The premises are of traditional stone construction under a natural slate roof. The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with the public areas on the ground floor, comprising the bar and dining area, through to a dining conservatory to the rear and a very well equipped commercial kitchen. The cellar, with storage over and two further single pitch storerooms are located in the courtyard.

On the first floor is the owners’/letting accommodation. The first floor lends itself to either a 1 bedroomed flat for the owners, comprising large double bedroom with en-suite, kitchenette and large lounge, leaving a further 4 rooms for letting (3 currently used for that purpose, with a 4th used as a store room).

The Business

The business is currently tenanted, due to expire on 31st March 2019 and therefore is not being sold with the benefit of trading accounts, however we understand the business has both wet and dry sales and has traded continuously for many years and of course given its coastal location and being on the SW Coast Path, does have a seasonal uplift in trade.
