Buying a business in Devon


Buying a business in Devon can enable you to start a new life as an independent entrepreneur, with the cash flow of an established enterprise from day one. Before you buy, make sure you have researched the specific area and the type of business carefully, and you could soon be making the most out of your new life as a Devon entrepreneur.

The vast majority of businesses in Devon are owner-managed SMEs (or small-to-medium sized enterprises), and there are lots of excellent business opportunities available to suit a wide range of budgets. Tourism is a huge industry in Devon, and guest houses, B&Bs, pubs and other tourism-fed businesses are popular in the area.

Devon is one of the furthest counties from London, and is flanked on two sides by water, limiting the hinterland around it. As a result the area has never traditionally been known for having a strong services sector, but all that is beginning to change, with the advent of the digital age. The global pharmaceuticals company Actavis have a large UK base in Barnstaple, the Met Office are headquartered in Exeter, and more than 200 financial services firms operate within the county.
