Profitable Devon Post Office on the market for the first time in 20 years

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to market Chudleigh Post Office in Devon, for the first time in 20 years.


Situated just off the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth, Chudleigh Post Office enjoys a prominent trading position on the main street through in Chudleigh and benefits from steady commuter and passing trade. The well-established post office is heavily relied upon by the local community,  and also operates as an “outreach” post office for 10 other locations.

The property also includes four bedroom owners accommodation which occupies three floors above the post office, providing a brilliant opportunity for a new owner-operator to acquire a well-established business with great accommodation. The business offers a desirable lifestyle with great access to the Devon coast.

The current owners, Ed and Jo Haws, have run the business and outreaches for the last 20 years, and have decided to sell as they wish to focus on other interests. They comment,

“In the last 20 years of running the Post Office, we have been lucky enough to see Chudleigh grow significantly in size, and this growth is still continuing. The Post Office has become a central point of the community, and the support we have had and still receive from the community never fails to surprise us. 

“It will be sad to move on, but after 20 years we now feel the time is right to hand over the reins of the business to someone new. Having bought the business through Christie & Co, it seems like completing the circle to use them to sell it for us.”

Matthew McFarlane, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “Chudleigh Post Office is considered a hub in the town and surrounding communities for its postal service and other essentials. The property offers a beautiful family home with great views, four large bedrooms, and a double garage, which would suit a new owner-operator or family.”
