Ambleside is the hub of the National Park, now a Unesco World Heritage Site and is a wonderful location in which to both live and work. There is a thriving resident population, massively boosted by a booming all year round tourist trade. It is estimated that there are around 50 million visitors to the Lake District annually, spending over £3 billion during their stay, and the vast majority will have the pretty little market town of Ambleside on their agenda, with many returning year after year – and why wouldn’t they? Situated at the northern tip of lake Windermere the market town boasts, quite apart from the wonderful scenery of course, a wide variety of shops and attractions including a well established cinema complex located directly opposite these attractive stone built premises.
Prominently placed just off the main thoroughfare through the town and enjoying a splendid 9.5 M frontage these attractive premises present a superb opportunity. The permitted use stated on the lease is as restaurant/café with ancillary retail usage within what was Use Class A1 and A3 of the Town and Country Planning (use classes) Order 1987 (which would now be Use Classes E and F.2). The premises are offered fully equipped with a splendid kitchen and is tastefully presented with 40 covers and include excellent retail options.
