Foxton Post Office and general store is situated in the heart of Foxton, which is a small village in Cambridgeshire about 7 miles north east of Royston and roughly equidistant from the M11. The business is the only shop in the area for around 3/4 miles. The village is well served with one primary school and a pub, which has a good reputation for being family friendly along with good food.
The village also benefits from having a mainline train station that serves both Cambridge and London. There is also a local village green with a pavilion with a skateboard park where local teams play football and cricket.
The business has served Foxton and the surrounding villages for 20 years and has been under the same ownership since 2014 when our client purchased the business, having moved from Hertfordshire for a complete lifestyle change. Foxton Post Office operates from a detached period property right on the main road through the village, with plenty of period buildings, open countryside and a park, thus providing an idyllic place to live and work.
Due to the semi rural location the business has a very regular and loyal customer base from the local village residents, along with passing trade who benefit from ample free parking on adjacent side streets and a free to use car park. The business is completely unopposed with regards to competition, but in our opinion could increase income by extending the opening hours on a daily basis.
We have been advised by our client that the area in general is expanding with new homes being built locally and the business also benefits from a regular bus service to the next village, where the main secondary school is situated, making this an ideal family purchase.
Summary. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a lifestyle change business in a peaceful and popular Cambridgeshire setting, with genuine growth potential. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the business opportunity and location.
