This thriving and well established retail convenience stores and local post office occupies a prime Fore Street trading position in the very heart of the picturesque and highly sought after South Cornwall riverside town of Fowey. It is a highly popular Cornwall destination, famous for its narrow streets and tourist style shops, art galleries, restaurants, pubs and wine bars, etc. Consequently, the business enjoys a consistent year round trade serving a resident population which, in turn is boosted during the summer by the many thousands of holidaymakers and tourists who visit and pass through the area.
Fowey is regarded as one of the most attractive waterside communities in the county. Particularly well known as a popular sailing centre, the town has two thriving sailing clubs, a famous annual regatta, and excellent facilities for the keen yachtsman. For a small town Fowey provides a good range of shops and businesses catering for both locals and tourists alike. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of delightful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Award winning restaurants, small boutique hotels, charming ‘olde worlde’ public houses etc have all helped to establish Fowey as a highly popular, high quality destination resort. There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just 5 miles to the north-west. There are good rail links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to Paddington, London can be made both locally at Par and St. Austell and there are flights to London and other destinations via the airport at Newquay.
The premises are terrace and are originally believed to date back to the mid 1800s. They appear to be of painted brick construction under a slate roof with a modern block built extension to the rear incorporating a stockroom and staff toilet. They are three storey with a smart well-appointed sales shop to the ground floor with stockroom and staff toilet with extensive store/stockroom and office areas to the upper floors. In addition, to the rear of the first floor is a secondary ancillary retail area. As mentioned, the upper floors are currently utilised mainly for stock and office accommodation but would lend themselves to conversion into private accommodation and, indeed, planning permission was previously obtained for conversion of the second floor into a two bedroom apartment. An early viewing appointment is essential to fully appreciate the location, appeal and undoubted future trading potential of this well established retail concern.
