The owner of the popular convenience store in the heart of Snowdonia National Park has decided to pursue a well-earned retirement, and so the store, which currently trades under the Spar banner, is coming to the market at an asking price of £449,950 for the freehold property.

The shop itself occupies a large detached building and has been well maintained with a full renovation undertaken by the current owner.  To the rear, the building also offers a large 4/5 bedroom owner's accommodation.

Dolwyddelan is situated in the picturesque Lledr valley of Snowdonia National Park and is just five miles from the bustling tourist village of Betws y Coed.  The store therefore benefits from passing trade and a loyal following of local customers.

James Moore-Martin of Christie + Co’s Manchester office who is handling the sale comments: “There is huge potential for any new operator to build on this already successful business, whether through extending opening hours or satisfying frequent requests from customers to provide a hot ‘Food to Go’ facility.”
