Brabin’s Shop and Tea Rooms is a charming 17th century Grade II* listed stone cottage style shop, with extensive retail areas, gardens and outbuildings.
The business stands in the centre of the medieval village of Chipping in the picturesque Ribble Valley, within the Forest of Bowland AONB and is reputed to be the oldest continuously trading shop in Great Britain.
The village of Chipping with its cobbled sidewalks and medieval church is situated on the slopes, above the River Loud and features former alms houses, a duck pond and Chipping Brook trout stream, which runs along the boundary of the property.
Brabin’s Shop and Tea Rooms was built in 1668 by John Brabin, dyer and cloth merchant and benefactor of Chipping. Frequent winner of Best Kept Village and Britain in Bloom competitions, the quaint village of Chipping nestles in the valley between Longridge Fell and the Bowland Fells, halfway between Clitheroe and Garstang. It is conveniently situated 5 miles from Longridge and 9 miles from the historic market town of Clitheroe. Also within easy reach are the Trough of Bowland, Stoneyhurst College, Beacon Fell Country Park and the roman village of Ribchester.
The vibrant village of Chipping boasts two public houses, an excellent village hall and a gym, plus superb sports and recreation facilities. It draws tourists from all over the UK and the nearby fells are a magnet for walkers, cyclist and day-trippers.
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase an established and heavily relied upon village store, which occupies a prominent trading position in the heart of Chipping. Brabin’s is the only grocery store and newsagent serving the village and the wider community.
The store retails newspapers, groceries, ice cream, greetings cards, gifts and traditional sweets. The business hosts an Outreach Post Office two mornings a week bringing extra footfall and rental income.
The business has a tea room at the rear of the premises and can cater for 12 pe
