The Business

This is now a very well established concern which enjoys all the considerable commercial and private advantages of a fantastic trading position adjacent to the Lancaster canal in the picturesque village of Lupton, which lies on the main A65 tourist route to Kirkby Lonsdale and the national motorway network (M6 junction 36) in a delightful rural area of Cumbria.

Operating from impressive purpose-built detached premises of enormous charm and character, which are set in approximately one acre of landscaped grounds and gardens, the business currently primarily offers a full and varied daytime menu of classic hot and cold snacks, sandwiches, light lunches, pastries and beverages.

All food is prepared freshly to order in its extensively equipped catering kitchen employing the finest, locally-sourced produce and served in the very pleasant surroundings of a tastefully furnished and appointed dining area which may accommodate up to fifty covers in style and comfort, with additional external covers also available on a charming sun terrace with spectacular views over the Lancaster canal and unspoilt surrounding countryside.

“The Hideaway Coffee House” also boasts all the superbly fitted traditional free-of-tie licensed bar facilities associated with an established of this kind and would naturally furnish any enthusiastic purchaser with vast scope for continued growth, not least with regard to possibly employing the private accommodation for bed and breakfast letting purposes, subject to consent, and to operating hugely extended hours in order to fully exploit year-round local demand.

The business would also benefit by adopting a more vigorous marketing policy of its excellent existing facilities and services, particularly through its informative dedicated website, in order to improve upon the already high levels of turnover and profitability it has achieved since being established some six successful years ago by the current proprietor, with the aid only of a small, experienced and motivated team of five part-time assistants who would be an asset to any purchaser, and we would unreservedly recommend a viewing.

The Business Premises

Fitted and presented to the highest, purpose-built industry specifications throughout, these impressive detached character premises provide truly outstanding and highly functional internal business accommodation which briefly comprises an inviting public vestibule entrance into the main, bright, spacious and welcoming open-planned customer service and dining area with Karndean flooring, high ceiling with Velux roof-lights, picture window views affording spectacular views over unspoilt surrounding countryside and stylish furnishings for approximately 50 internal dining covers.

The main public area also affords access onto a delightful sun terrace dining area and features a prominent, fully fitted food serve-over counter and free-of-tie licensed servery with non slip flooring, chilled drinks display unit, 1 x draught pump, bottle and glass display and storage shelving, electronic till point, modern in-house music system and a fully equipped open-planned preparation area with modern coffee machine and grinder, hot water boiler, stainless-steel work surfaces, refrigerator storage units and chilled drinks display unit.

The customer service area, in turn, affords easy access through to a fully fitted and extensively equipped commercial kitchen with extraction system, uPVC clad walls and non-slip flooring, housing ample stainless-steel work surfaces, storage units and a full range of modern, high quality catering appliances including 1 x 6 burner oven and hob and various refrigerator/freezer storage units etc., all of which we understand is to be included in the sale price and further details of which will be made available upon request to any genuine interested parties.

The ground-floor premises also incorporate a dry goods storage and preparation/washing-up kitchen area with fitted sink unit, commercial dishwasher, storage shelving and back-up refrigerator/freezer storage units, with further ancillary accommodation consisting of all the usual separate male and female washroom/WC for customers, which we understand have been designed for the use of the disabled.

To the exterior the business premises feature a large private patrons’ car park in addition to a charming 20-cover sun terrace dining area affording breathtaking views over unspoilt surrounding countryside, the Lancaster canal and Farleton Knott.

To the second floor the property provides further private living accommodation which consists of a spacious master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, exposed timberwork, 2 x Velux roof-lights and a fully fitted en-suite area with steam cabinet, WC and fitted washbasin, together with a charming study with exposed timberwork and Velux window.
