This is a rare and unique opportunity to purchase a charming village store and post office, which occupies a monopoly position in the picturesque village of Orton in Cumbria, approximately 15 miles south of Penrith and 8 miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland.

Orton is quite literally surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, set at the foot of Orton Scar in the upper Lune Valley. Described by Alfred Wainwright as one of Westmorland's loveliest villages, Orton enjoys an idyllic rural location, while benefitting from excellent transport links with the (M6) motorway, Lake District and neighbouring towns and villages all close at hand.

Orton Village Stores & Post Office is located at the very heart of the village with no competition and the business subsequently attracts high levels of regular local and passing trade throughout the day from local residents, as well as the large number of tourists, walkers and cyclists who frequent the village.

The business will also be included in the Yorkshire Dales National Park on the 1st August, which will benefit the business as it will draw more people to the area.

Having been under present family ownership for over 10 years, this well known business has forged strong relationships with the surrounding community and therefore enjoys an extensive and loyal customer base.

Orton Village Store & Post Office operates from a highly visible and imposing double fronted stone premises, providing a deceptively spacious ground floor retail space and delightful family living accommodation, which is beautifully presented oozing charm and character.

The sales area is fitted to a high standard with a good range of quality fixtures and fitments, creating a bright and welcoming environment.

The business retails a range of newspapers, confectionery, tobacco products, soft drinks, freshly made sandwiches, pies, cakes, bread, cooked meats, dairy products, frozen foods, fruit and veg, traditional beers, wines, spirits

Summary. This is a fantastic lifestyle opportunity with a beautiful family home and a viewing is therefore highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
