This is a fabulous opportunity to aquire an existing tea rooms business and living accommodation in the heart of the busy Dartmoor town of Ashburton, housed within a distinctive bay-windowed building fronting the main shopping area.

Taylors was established by Sarah Taylor in 2009 and has gained an excellent reputation for its mouth watering cakes, soups, sandwiches, pates and terrines, artisan teas and infusions, coffees, soft and alcoholic beverages. There are currently 7 antique glass top tables providing 18 covers, though previously there were 30 covers plus 6 outside.

The sale includes the goodwill, trade fixtures and fittings, website and a new lease of the whole building (length of lease to be agreed with interested parties). The business could easily be run by a couple with some part-time assistance and has the potential to generate an attractive income, as past performance shows.

There is also scope for retail sales such as artwork or antiques in addition to the tea room.

The living accommodation on the first floor is comfortably appointed and has a sunny decked outdoor seating area.

Sarah now wishes to step back from the business to focus on her growing family and her artwork but is available to assist a new owner with hand over.

Ashburton is a busy town which in addition to all year round trade benefits from thousands of tourist visitors each year as a gateway to Dartmoor.
