A unique business combining a thriving cafe and store which is wonderfully located in the most picturesque area of the South Hams, Devon. This successful owner operated business has been established for many years and is now only being placed on the open market due to retirement. The licenced café offers an eat-in menu, take away food, drinks and ice creams which are very popular with local consumers as well as tourists visiting during the summer months. The store offers a wealth of everyday provisions for locals and tourists alike which is hugely supported. This business is currently operating for 8 months per year due to a lifestyle choice, but nevertheless, provides an impressive income. Early viewings are highly recommended.


Piglet Café and Stores are in East Prawle, Kingsbridge which is a beautiful area of the South Hams, Devon. This little gem is widely sought out by tourists, which visit in high numbers to the many camp sites and holiday cottages nearby, together with a strong local customer base. There are good vehicular road links and local schools nearby. The business is situated in an area of outstanding beauty with wonderful beaches within walking distance with a wealth of water activities available.


Over many years this business has been owner operated with part time assistance.  Both the shop and the cafe are licenced. The demand is there to open for longer periods, which would undoubtedly see the already impressive income and subsequent net profit increase. The property benefits from low overheads, currently zero rates and only trades for 8 months per year although the local community/tourism support an all year round opening. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
