Property Brochure PDF Location Map


Trewellard is a small village on the ‘North Coast Road’ between St Just and St Ives, approximately 7 miles from lands End and the main nearest town of Penzance. The village lies in an AONB and has a number of period granite properties and sites of interest, all of which makes this an attractive part of the County in which to live and indeed holiday.

The Meadery is in the centre of the village and enjoys high levels of visibility for its striking building.


Formerly a Chapel built in 1843 the building comprises a detached two storey property with later extensions forming the rear / side service areas and entrance. The property has of course been modernised and converted to provide a c. 100 cover restaurant with commercial kitchen and preparation / storage and extensive 4 bedroom owners accommodation on the first floor.

Overall, in our opinion, the property is presented and indeed equipped, in good order.


We understand the business has been trading in the same family ownership for 50 years, so it’s sale recognises quite a milestone in its history, now due to retirement for the current owners. The business trades evenings from 6:30 to 11:00 pm 7 days per week in the main season, reducing to 3 days (friday, saturday and sunday) in the off season. The business has a trade split of 70% sit in and 30% takeaway.

We are advised the annual turnover is in the region of £220,000 (net of VAT) which has a Gross Profit level of 57.6% and which after all overheads (including wages of £43,000) produces an adjusted net profit of c. £57,000 per annum. Further Accounting information will be made available to interested parties.
