Opportunity to acquire freehold convenience store with holiday cottages

Specialist property advisor, Christie & Co is delighted to bring to the market Blakeney Stores, a convenience store located in the village of Blakeney, Gloucestershire.


This is an incredible opportunity to purchase a fully managed, well positioned convenience store with profitable holiday cottage business. This multi-faceted business provides an outstanding lifestyle opportunity and both the business, and the property provide further potential to increase trade and add value.

After running the store for 24 years, our client, David Mills, has decided to sell the business in order to pursue retirement. He comments, “Myself and my partner have had the privilege of running this popular village store for more than 20 years. It has been with a heavy heart that we have decided to move forward into our retirement, leaving not only the village store but the adjoining flats, alongside highly successful holiday lets. After many days of trying to locate the right commercial agents to move on this investment opportunity, we have decided to use Christie & Co as our agents. We believe that Christie & Co’s overall image and their professional approach will be able to sell this magnificent opportunity to the right buyer.”
Jamie Williams, Business Agent at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and comments, “Blakeney Stores is an outstanding business located in the centre of a thriving community with consistent levels of trade throughout the year. The store has been superbly run by our clients and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a very profitable business, with scope to increase revenue. In addition to the store, there is the income generated by three flats and two popular holiday cottages, making it a brilliant investment.”

Jimmy Johns, Senior Finance Consultant at Christie Finance comments, “This business offers a potential buyer plenty of opportunity for growth and diversification. Christie Finance are well placed to secure the necessary financing required to fund the purchase of this profitable convenience store. Please get in contact for more information on how we can help.”

The freehold interest of Blakeney Stores and holiday cottages is offered at £1,400,000.
