Overview

A RARE FREEHOLD COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITY TO INCLUDE A BUSY VILLAGE TEA ROOMS, VILLAGE STORE AND DELI, PLUS COBBLES HOLIDAY APARTMENT AND TWO BED & BREAKFAST LETTING ROOMS, ALL WITHIN TWO SUPERBLY RENOVATED PERIOD BUILDINGS.

Description

The Fountain Tea Rooms, with south facing outside seating area, provides an excellent hospitality opportunity, which combines well with two 5* Bed and Breakfasts suites, and housed within the converted barn to the rear is a similar standard Cobbles holiday apartment and The Fountain Store and Deli, which provides simple grocery needs for locals and tourists alike.

Standing at the heart of Bonsall, a thriving village amidst the rolling Derbyshire Dales, The Fountain Tea Rooms holds an interesting history, principally as a former public house, which has been rescued and renovated to provide a varied range of hospitality income streams.

The two character buildings have undergone extensive renovation and refurbishment through the past decade or so and offer a rare opportunity for the enterprising owner, and it is believed there is further opportunity to develop the business in a number of ways, whether increased trading hours for the tea rooms, or perhaps to explore alternative use of the store and deli, subject to planning.
