This historic fishing village has a very healthy tourist trade, thanks to its rows of colourful fishermen’s cottages, popular annual Book Festival, and enviable coastal position on the Taw-Torridge estuary. However, it also has a strong resident community that makes good use of the village’s good-quality shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Being also only 1 mile from the larger village of Northam, 2 miles from the family beach and resort at Westward Ho!, and 2 miles from the larger town of Bideford, people in the area tend to move freely between these locations (aided by a regular bus route), which is of benefit to any businesses based here. North Devon’s commercial centre of Barnstaple is also nearby (11 miles).


The property is located on Market Street, which runs parallel to The Quay.   There are mixed residential and commercial operators in the immediate vicinity including Galleries, Tea Rooms, Restaurants and Public Houses with the Post Office close by on the Quay.


The premises would have formerly been two or three Quayside Cottages and was most recently operated as a Grade II Listed Public House and restaurant.  The double fronted premises has been reconfigured to provide lounge bar, separate restaurant and commercial kitchen at ground floor as well as there being a beer garden and patio to the rear which could be incorporated as further trading areas if desired.  Much structural work has been undertaken to reconfigure the premises including the creation of a new entrance and staircase to self contain the 3 bedroomed accommodation above, which could be utilised for owners use or holiday rental income.  Works have been undertaken under planning application number 1/0740/2017/FUL, with building control inspections undertaken by Torridge District Council.  Further works undertaken include first fix electrical wiring, fire and intruder alarm installation and separate electrical supply to residential parts.  Works are required to complete the building but new owners can undertake these to suit their own requirements / trading style.


Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest.  It should be noted that the sale of the property will attract VAT, at the prevailing rate.  Interested parties may wish to seek accountancy advice as how the VAT may be reclaimed.


The property is sold with the benefit of a Premises Licence.
