This lovely ‘easy-to-run’ tea room is being offered for sale as a turn-key business with a successful Holiday Let apartment above.
Since new ownership (2018) there has been significant investment in the premises to include whole new re-brand, successful online presence via social media, new signage, new tables, chairs, garden items, garden sofas, floral items, fire-pits. The washroom has undergone much improvement with new toilet, decorations, flooring, lighting and washable rear Aqua-wall.
The Garden Cafe is owner operated and employs the help of a variety of part time staff who are split over weekdays and weekends
The menu offers a plethora of artisan coffees, teas, hot chocolate, milkshakes, ice-cream sundaes, soft drinks, Breakfasts, Daily Specials, freshly made sandwiches, toasties, salads and homemade soups. It is well known for its array of amazing cakes, traditional Cream Teas & English Afternoon Teas. The café is renowned for its standard of high-quality produce and uses locally sourced products wherever available. All orders are freshly prepared which contributes to giving the cafe outstanding reviews.
There is significant potential to increase revenue should you wish, by extending the current opening times and/or by opening 7 days a week. There are also opportunities to open in the evenings as a bistro. The business already enjoys a strong reputation with the local residents (offering a Resident Loyalty scheme of 10% discount). There is a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many new tourists.
The property is ideally situated as it is on one of the main footpaths, which attracts customers who are walking back and forth to the main car park.
The owners strongly believe there is potential for a significant increase in revenue by introducing an alcohol licence and serving a good-quality alcohol. The ambiance of the café would warrant serving a selection of a high-quality fizz, red & white wines and bottled beers. The sun stays on the front of the café for the late afternoon-sun; hence the café attracts many tourists who stop for a last cup of coffee before they head home. The introduction of a Mediterranean style tapas board with alcohol is a concept that will significantly increase the revenue for a small outlay.
The apartment is accessed at the rear of the property and via 1 flight of stairs, leading to the first floor
Lounge, kitchen, shower-room, storage cupboard, kingsize bedroom & twin bedroom
2nd flight of stairs leads to:
Double bedroom with toilet, washbasin and clothes cupboard
There is also the potential to adapt the apartment into 2 separate living spaces as a means by increasing revenue.
This is a superb opportunity which is a great base to build upon. There is plenty of potential to increase revenue for a motivated and enthusiastic new owner and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this tea room will not stay on the market for long.
