Business Description
This really is a fantastic and unique opportunity for someone who would like to become part of an amazing community and further develop the business.
The premises comprises of a shop, including sub post office with two bed flat above, separate two storey Store Room, Tea Room with large area above with potential, and large outside areas, some covered, providing further sales area and seating areas for Tea Room.The business is set in a stunning Kent village with all properties owned by the National Trust and is a popular day trip/tourist destination.
BUSINESS – The business is well established and is now only being marketed as a result of the vendors other interests. Turnover is increasing annually for both the Shop and Tea Room. There is plenty of potential to further develop the business such as with the liscenced Tea room staying open into the evening and operating as a restaurant or carrying out functions and events. The tea room opening hours are currently 10-5.
The shop is understood to be the oldest working shop in the UK and dates back to 1453. The shop operates as both a convenience store serving the local village community, and a gift shop selling items such as traditional sweets, toys, jewellery, greeting cards, furniture, items for the garden and more. A sub Post Office is located within the shop and is open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We have started to build a reputation and following for the shop and a next step could be to start online sales.
The Tea Room is located in an old Coach House and comprises of the main seating area (approx. 32 covers) with log burning stove, lobby/serving area including counter, kitchen and room including walk-in-fridge. There is a small rear garden (approx. 20 covers) and two main seating areas at the front of the tea room, one of which is covered (approx. 40 covers). There is a large room above the tea room currently used for storage. This could easily be converted to extend the seating area for private functions or to cope with increasing trade. We have also done regular pop up restaurant events which have proved popular. We also offer traditional afternoon tea which again has the capacity to increase with the right marketing. The kitchen was retiled and a new floor laid in January 2018. The public are of the Tea room also had a new limestone floor laid this year.
TOTAL INSIDE SEATING AREA = 375 SQFT and outside xxxxsqft
There is a spacious two bedroom flat above the shop, including kitchen, bathroom, lounge with gas burning stove, dining area (could be used as third bedroom) and attic storage area.
