Enjoying a superb and enviable trading position in the heart of Cheddar Gorge, one of England’s most visited and well known tourist attractions, Old Rowlands is now offered for sale only due to the current owners’ plans to move on to other opportunities after 14 successful years.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of Cheddar Gorge’s most famous and well known businesses, ideally located in the centre of the Gorge next to the world famous caves and at the foot of Jacob's Ladder within the main tourist area with extremely high volumes of footfall.
The substantial, extended stone built and tiled character detached three storey property is extremely well presented and welcoming with its washed elevations and commanding presence in the Gorge.
It has benefitted from much refurbishment over the years and the current owners take an obvious pride in the appearance of the business and superb 3 bedroom owners’ self-contained living accommodation. There is a lot of history and heritage attached to the property and business – as the photography shows.
Run by a husband and wife team, in the shop you will find many gifts and home accessories, as well as a vast collection of Christmas ornaments and decorations.
Of particular benefit is the attractive & spacious 3 bedroom owners’ accommodation, modernised and extended with conservatory kitchen, very nicely decorated and appointed, including a newly fitted kitchen & bathroom.

THE SHOP: You arrive in the shop on the ground floor with prominent wide frontage with four large display windows and are greeted by an attractively merchandised ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ of gifts, shabby chic home accessories, Christmas decorations and ornaments – and much more! Externally there is a covered space to present a wonderful entrance to the shop and display stock.
Customers can also visit the website and place and pay for orders online. The shop is pleased to be stockists of best selling brands including Gisela Graham, Sass Belle, Enchante, Wrendale Designs, Waxcrayon and Heaven Sends. The shop also benefits from its own self-contained WC, store area and small kitchen area.
The shop could also be used for various other business types such as Cafe Tea Rooms or other retail uses.

LIVING ACCOMMODATION: The accommodation is a real added benefit to Old Rowlands and provides a very nice home for a couple or family. The property has its own self-contained separate entrance via a metal gate leading to a small paved, gravelled and decking area to the entrance door where you will find the superbly modernised, equipped and spacious living accommodation on the first & second floors. Once through the door you enter the newly fitted conservatory kitchen with fully fitted appliances & fan assisted oven and ample space for a dining table and chairs for a family or to entertain. Leading from here is a door to the rear garden or through double reclaimed pine doors to the spacious living room with triple aspect windows, exposed beams and a dual fuel log/coal burning stove for those cosy winter evenings. There is also an under stairs cupboard. From here the staircase leads to the second floor landing where you will find three bedrooms and the newly fitted bathroom, comprising briefly of two double bedrooms with exposed beam & dual aspect windows over the river and up and down the Gorge. These two bedrooms also have the benefit of built in cupboard wardrobes.
