The redevelopment of the property has been done sensitively with close attention paid to the age and overall style and period of the property. The outcome is a thriving and well operated business that offers the perfect balance of business and lifestyle. While the business has a strong trading history, new owners could consider opening a tea room or coffee shop within the premises to help boost trade further.
