DELIGHTFUL MARKET TOWN
The Duchy Coffee Shop is situated in the heart of Lostwithiel, directly opposite the historic church of St Bartholomew, which dates back to the thirteenth century. Once an ancient Stannary Town, Lostwithiel is located in Central Cornwall in a wooded valley at the head of the estuary of the River Fowey. This historic town is famous for its Tudor Bridge and nearby Restormel Castle and is home to an eclectic mix of individual boutiques, antique shops, cafes and niche retailers. It has a station on the main London to Penzance Rail line and the arterial A390 connecting Devon and Cornwall passes through its centre.
It is also within easy reach of some of Cornwall’s most popular visitor attractions; the Eden Project being within 8 miles and Heligan Gardens within 15 miles, making it an ideal base for those wishing to explore the South East Coast of Cornwall.
Main Seating Area
Range of freestanding tables and chairs providing 24 covers. Window to front elevation with built in window seat. Part exposed stone walls. Wood effect laminate flooring. Access to:
The business occupies a traditional property which retains much of its original charm and character. To the ground floor is a coffee shop with 24 covers and well equipped commercial kitchen. The coffee shop is accessed from Fore Street via a passage that leads between it and the neighbouring shop. This passageway also gives access to the commercial kitchen, a small courtyard area and the first floor apartments.
At present, the flat is occupied by our client but, if not required for an ‘owner operator, could be let for residential or holiday use to generate additional revenue.
The coffee shop has been in our clients tenure for the past 19 years and is now being offered for sale due to impending retirement.
Whilst Lostwithiel sees a healthy seasonal uplift during the summer months it also has a strong local following and trades all year round from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. The business is operated by our client with one full time member of staff but it is considered that it would be easily manageable for a couple.
Trading accounts will be made available subject to a viewing appointment in the usual manner, we are advised that the business is currently trading below the VAT threshold through choice.
