Location

Cornish Coasts enjoys a prominent trading location on the A39 ‘Atlantic Highway’ 3 miles from Widemouth Bay (a Blue Flag Beach) and 5 miles from the bustling town of Bude, which was awarded 2018 Best UK Coastal Resort. The location is ideal for those wishing to have access to some of the best beaches, coves and villages in North Cornwall and access to Bude which has secondary schooling, supermarkets and hostelries / gift shops.

This area of North Cornwall is generally regarded as a very desirable part of the County in which to live and work.

The Properties

We understand Middle Penlean Farmhouse dates back to the 13th Century and has some character features indicative of that era, notably exposed timber lintels and beams, albeit the property has been extensively modernised to suit family living. The farmhouse is currently divided into two properties to suit our clients needs (see below).

The Farm Shop and Cafe is a superb addition, completed in 2017 to provide ground and first (Camping Shop) retail areas and a minimum 34 cover cafe (could be extended). On the first floor and with separate external access and enjoying fantastic views are two letting flats (two and one bedrooms). The quality of this building and fit out has to be seen to be appreciated. The building was designed to allow the retail or cafe elements to be expanded into the respective areas if demand dictated.

The Business

We understand the campsite has traded since the 1960’s and has been in our clients tenure since 2009, during which time they have extensively updated the living accommodation, the campsite and of course have made the addition of the Farm Shop and Cafe (2017) and Letting Flats (2018). The campsite trades on a seasonal basis (although it has a Licence to operate all year), i.e from Easter through to October. The Farm Shop and Cafe trades daily from 8am to 4pm in the off season and 8am to 8pm in the high season. The Post Office is open two mornings per week, 9am to 1pm and the letting flats can be let all year round.

We are advised the turnover for the period end October 2018 (at the time of writing) is in the region of £225,000, with a projected year end (April 2019) turnover of £287,000 (further Accounting information and indeed projections / forecast for 2019 / 2020 year end are available upon request to interested parties).
