Located just off the town centre adjacent to St Andrews Church, this landmark building has a prominent corner site within the bustling South Dartmoor town of Ashburton.

There is a large nearby pay and display public car park and green open public parks close up. Ashburton attracts thousands of visitors each year and is a gateway to Dartmoor. It's close proximity to the A38 brings it within easy reach of Exeter and the national motorway network.

Housed within an imposing three-storey Grade II listed building, the ground floor includes the tea rooms with full alcohol on and off premises licence and covers currently for 25 (scope for additional covers). There is a stainless steel catering kitchen with still room off and staff WC.

The upper floors include owners living room and kitchen together with five double en-suite bedrooms. The accommodation is clean and tidy throughout with modern shower rooms, kitchen and décor.

Our clients purchased The Old Coffee House at the end of 2005 as a going concern. Three years later they decided to close the tea rooms to the general public (purely a lifestyle choice) and concentrate on the B&B side. The tea rooms are a fully equipped turn-key business and have been used to provide lunches for the directors of a local business. There is a huge amount of scope to re-open the tea rooms and increase the letting occupancy of the B&B rooms.

Please note we have not attributed any value for goodwill and will not be providing accounting information.
