Café For Sale

For sale by Public Auction and via Livestream on Thursday 25th July 2024 at 2pm at Digby Hall, Hound Street, Sherborne DT9 3AB. Register to bid in the room, online, by telephone or by proxy via our website.

The freehold to the Old Boathouse which is a Grade II Listed Building is made up of vacant ground floor commercial premises, the long leasehold flat on the first floor that has been sold away and a large roof terrace which like the ground floor is a vacant part of the freehold albeit with no current ready means of access from the adjoining ‘cannon lookout’ with views towards Golden Cap and the eastern Jurassic Coastline round to Portland Island. The trading floorspace has four sash windows and double entrance doors which gives a number of serving alternatives, inside and out. Internally, there is a seating area and a servery counter, an L-shaped kitchen and preparation area, a hot drink station and a WC. In addition, the property has enjoyed a longstanding arrangement with Lyme Regis Town Council for twelve external tables and thirty-six chairs.

As the address suggests, the property is the first one you encounter as you turn the corner at the Cobb Gate end of the Marine Parade. It’s the moment when the sea and the beach and The Cobb and the Jurassic Coast come together panoramically to make you glad you came to Lyme Regis or remember quite what’s on your doorstep if you live hereabouts. There are two public car parks in the immediate vicinity as is the principal local/regional bus stop for Lyme Regis along with the first port of call for the bus that serves the four hundred or so spaces at the Honeyfields Park and Ride facility off the Charmouth Road on the outskirts of the town. In short, a fantastic trading position!

In sight of and within a few paces of the town's main 'park and ride' and bus transport hub as well as two public carparks.
Panoramic unbroken views to the iconic Cobb Harbour in the west right across the bay to Golden Cap and around to Portland in the East.
Prominently located at the 'gateway' to the historic Marine Parade that runs across Lyme Regis' seafront.
