Now available due to retirement after many happy years in the same ownership since 1987. This property is a Grade II listed terraced well maintained and cosy character cottage with the ground floor providing a cafe and kitchen area. There is access directly off Broad Street as well as pedestrian shared access to The Strand and Cove car park beyond. The upper floors provide a cosy 3 bedroom owners accommodation. We strongly recommend early viewing of this valuable commercial property as it is a rare opportunity to join the close knit harbour community. The property could also be converted back to a cosy cottage on the ground floor, subject to planning permission for change of use.

Now closed due to owner retirement, the business was well established for many years and was frequented by fishermen, locals and tourists alike and is well known for its hearty breakfasts and snacks.
It is considered that this business could easily be re-instated. It used to be open 7 days a week from 8.00 am till 3.00 pm, with obvious scope to extend opening hours to increase trade.
