This business really does have it all! Offering a new owner a fabulous opportunity to enjoy working and if desired, living on the picturesque Norfolk Broads with its delightful way of life. This is a thriving operation comprising of a deli, cafe, gift shop and holiday (or owners) accommodation giving huge ability to cross sell to customers.
The characterful but unlisted property has been fitted out to the highest of standards providing a very stylish yet rustic charm throughout. Financially performing well and with a fantastic reputation, what more could one ask for?
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
Having been established for a number of years and further enhanced by the current owner in more recent times the business now comes to the market in a very presentable fashion.
In its current set up the Deli is the focal point when walking into the property where you are greeted with a large cold counter stocked with a tempting array of home cooked delights together with a selection of locally sourced produce. This is complimented with a range of bespoke shelving and stands displaying items such as wines, chutneys, cakes and such like. Either side of the Deli and flowing seamlessly from one area to the next is the cafe and gift shop. Each being fitted out to the highest of standards yet feeling warm and inviting you can not help but be drawn into exploring throughout. Many a time a customer will come in for a coffee but leaves with produce from the deli and gifts from the shop meaning spend per customer is far higher than in a business providing only one of these elements.
In addition the owner operates a successful holiday letting side to the business having created a very attractive first floor apartment with wonderful views across the broads which can either be continued as is or alternatively it can provide residential accommodation for a new owner or their staff if so required.
With a turnover approaching £250k and with the high GP margins one would expect of this type of operation it provides a desirable ‘lifestyle’ business which is also financially rewarding and complete with a beautiful freehold property in a prime location.

The gift shop blends into this and sells a range of unusual and individual gifts, ranging from jewellery, wallets, handbags, homeware, cards, scarves, books etc. The cafe side of the property has an open ceiling with a range of tables and chairs as well as built in seating.
