With over 40,000 inhabitants including nearby villages, Barnstaple is a thriving town near to beautiful beaches and countryside, and the centre of North Devon in commerce, culture, education and service provision. It has a wide variety of businesses attracting tourists and permanent residents year-round, including a vibrant and diverse collection of bars and restaurants for evening footfall. Barnstaple is easily reached via the A361 which leads to the M5 at Junction 27, has a station with hourly trains to Exeter at peak times, and Exeter airport is an hour away. The town is rapidly expanding with several new housing and commercial developments currently underway, and more than 5,000 new houses and further economic development planned for the near future. The notable towns of Bideford (9 miles), Woolacombe (14 miles), Ilfracombe (12 miles), South Molton (12 miles) and Torrington (14 miles) are also nearby.


The property is situated on a roadside location on Vicarage Street close to the entrance to Green Lanes Multi-Storey car park as well as Boutport Street.  The premises therefore provides good access to the town centre and related services.   Transportation links are further increased by the two bus stops close by.


The existing Planning Permission allows Use under the previous A5 category (Hot Food Take-Away). This Class is now incorporated within the wider Classes E (e-f) and F1. This new Class encompasses retail, financial services, professional services, other appropriate services in a commercial business or service locality, food and drink for consumption (mainly) on the premises, indoor sport, recreation or fitness, medical or health services and uses which can be carried out in a residential area without detriment to its amenity. The premises will thus be suited to a number of business uses outside restaurant/take-away use.


Available by way of a sublease from the current Tenant until September 2029, on a full repairing and insuring basis.
