TEA ROOM AND GIFT SHOP in Cumbria for Sale. A hugely attractive business which has operated successfully for many years and is tremendously popular with tourists and visitors to the Lake District National Park and famous Scafell Pike - the tallest mountain in England. A well-known stop-off point for fell walkers and cyclists all year around. Located in a lovely hamlet between Eskdale and Wasdale, this is a picture postcard setting, surrounded by stunning scenery. The freehold interest in the business and property is being offered and represents tremendous value for money, especially given that it sits in almost one fifth of an acre of land, encompassing two main buildings connected by a further commercial kitchen building, large outdoor seating area and a car park. Weekly Turnover £6,000. The establishment is highly regarded and was recently awarded with the prestigious Trip Advisor Travellers Choice Award 2021 as one of the Top 10% of Restaurants Worldwide. The business is entirely staff run with a manager and small team of loyal staff as the owners have full-time professional careers and cannot commit their time to the business, hence their wish to pass the reins over to more hands-on owner operators who can really immerse themselves in the operation and lifestyle. Multi-faceted, with a mix of food and beverage and complimenting retail gift shop. The Tea Room / Cafe: Ramped entry to modern appointed and furnished cafe. Lots of natural light from full-height, wide patio doors looking out over the gardens and outdoor seating area. Service counter with chilled dessert display case, espresso machine and POS system.
