With a resident population of around 32,000 including nearby villages, Bideford is the second largest town in North Devon, and the town has a reputation as a pleasant place to live, work and visit. In recent years Bideford has benefited from lots of investment and development, including the ongoing Atlantic Park retail area and improvements to the historic town centre and quayside, and the current Local Plan allows for a further 4,000 homes plus leisure facilities. Bideford is within 3 miles of some well-known North Devon locations such as Appledore, Westward Ho!, Instow and Northam and only 9 miles from the area’s commercial centre of Barnstaple. It is also within a half-hour’s drive of Exmoor National Park, the beaches around Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton, and the Devon-Cornwall border.


The property is situated within the pedestrianised area known as Mill Street, adjacent to the entrance to Cooper Street.  Operators close by including WH Smith and Co-Operative Food.  Mill Street has undergone considerable investment of recent years including mixed residential and commercial development scheme.


Being of three storey construction under a pitched slate roof, there is a double fronted shop unit at ground floor level with rendered elevations to the upper floors.  Commercial parts include ground floor take-away / coffee shop with space for approximately 20 covers which is served by a rear kitchen area.  It is thought there is the potential for further covers with a pavement licence.  The upper parts (which are not self-contained) provide owners accommodation over two floors, including 2 bedrooms, kitchen, lounge / diner, bathroom and toilet. 


The premises are available by way of a new lease.
