A SUCCESSFUL café is on the market as the couple retire after having run the business for nearly 30 years.

The Wheelhouse Snack Bar is at the heart of Minehead’s retail centre, fronting The Avenue, the town’s main shopping street.

The prominent retail premises, which has a separately accessed four-bedroom maisonette, is on the market with commercial agents Greenslade Taylor Hunt, at a guide price of £375,000.

Joseph Hughes, associate with Greenslade Taylor Hunt, said: "This well situated handsome mixed use property is on the market for the first time in many years.

"It benefits from a separately accessed four-bedroomed maisonette, which has been fitted out to a good specification, with successful café business below in the ever-popular seaside resort of Minehead.

"We are sure this is not going to remain on the market long."

The business benefits from outdoor seating and averages an annual turnover of £80,000.

It attracts local and holiday trade, providing a year round income.

There is also good passing trade from potential customers visiting the nearby seafront.

Despite the pandemic the business is in a healthy financial position.

It is for sale as a going concern, with the fixtures, fittings, furniture and equipment included.

Adjacent to the café and snack bar is a popular hairdressing business, which is sold off on a long lease, but included within the freehold title.

The maisonette comprises a kitchen, open plan living and dining room and bathroom on the first floor.

There are three double bedrooms and a single bedroom on the second floor.

There is also a roof terrace to the rear, which is accessible from the first floor of the maisonette.
