The terraced three storey early 19th century Grade II listed building is prominently located in the popular tourist village of Cerne Abbas near Dorchester, home to the Cerne Abbas giant, a 180 ft tall chalk figure carved in the hillside.
Abbots Tearoom is a popular day time destination specialising in Dorset Cream teas and light lunches and boasts five letting bedrooms situated above the café, offered on a bed and breakfast basis. There is potential for a new owner to use the rooms above as living accommodation or increase trading hours by opening during the evening as the business is also licensed to serve alcohol.
Stephen Champion, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co's Exeter office who is handling the sale comments; "Abbots is a unique business which could be ideally suited to a lifestyle buyer, as there is genuine scope to further develop income and profitability by extending the opening hours to take advantage of the busy local evening trade.
“Christie & Co recently sold the neighbouring Cerne Abbas Stores off an asking price of £599,950. Abbots, now on the market at a reduced asking price, presents a terrific opportunity to acquire a business in the heart of the popular tourist village for an excellent value.”
