The property has been developed by the present owners who are now looking to retire after purchasing the property in 1979. The business runs as a successful and established Tea Rooms and Craft Centre set within Exmoor National Park and has built up high levels of repeat business due to its location and trade.
The property has been featured on television with ITV Country Ways and featured in two of Marcia Willets novels. The property has won This Englands Finest Tea Rooms Award in 2013 due to its level of service and character building.
There is potential to expand the business by introducing evening meals as a bistro and the field is currently under-utilised and would ideally suit organic farming.
Currently the Tea Rooms bake all their own cakes and provide homemade light lunches along with a Sunday lunch at £8.95, using local produce including Styles Ice Cream and Miles Tea both from Minehead.
The barn shop is a detached traditional stone barn which has potential to be converted into further accommodation for the Tea Rooms, a farm shop to compliment the organic farming, antique centre or to convert it into a holiday letting cottage subject to gaining the relevant planning consents.
There are higher levels of demand for guest accommodation in the area which is something that a new owner may consider.
There is potential subject to planning to use the paddock for camping/yurts to provide extra income to the property.
The business is promoted via word of mouth locally and they have established a website which is under-utilised at this time to promote the business.
