The recently refurbished property provides a spacious trading area, supplying a range of convenience goods and post office services, making it heavily relied on in the local community. Also provided on the site is spacious four bedroom owner’s accommodation, with separate access and a private driveway and garden. 

Occupying an accessible position in the heart of the village and close to the busy A30, the store is ideally located to serve those in the vicinity and nearby villages, plus passing trade travelling through the popular Cornish countryside. As the village of Lewannick sits on the edge of Bodmin Moor, the area also sees a high number of tourists drawn to the natural attraction.

Current owner, Shirley Leslie has owned and operated the store for 15 years and has now decided to sell the business in order to retire from the sector.

William Trott, Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Exeter office who is handling the sale, comments, “Lewannick is an excellent location for an independent shop. The village benefits from a strong community and groups catering for many interests including gardening, history and theatre. Lewannick is also a tourist destination for local, national and international visitors and the store is conveniently located to serve a lot of the smaller villages and hamlets in the surrounding area. 

“Shirley and her family put a lot of work into the business when they first moved in, extensively renovating the property and building it up into the renowned and extremely successful shop which it is today. It offers a great deal of potential as the extensive accommodation could lend itself to letting room provision for an additional income stream or simply a wonderful family home for an owner operator in a picturesque area.”

Lewannick Stores & Post Office is on the market at an asking price of £375,000 for the freehold interest.
