Horseshoe Fish and Chip Restaurant is a well-established and popular business set in the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen.

The premises is located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and in close proximity to the Lake District. Kirkby Stephen is a popular market town with a wealth of activities to do and see and has good access links to A55, M6 and A1 and easy access to Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

The business is profitable and has had an excellent business history. The current owners have run this family business for 60 years and for personal reasons are now trading with reduced opening hours and therefore not running to full potential. Current owners are selling for retirement.

There is a two bedroomed, first floor apartment with a living room and kitchen with separate access from the ground floor vestibule. With full renovation this could let out separately for approximately £650pcm.
On the ground floor is an attractive bow fronted shop with counter, waiting area and dining room. To the rear there is an additional seating area, large kitchen, potato/preparation room, storage room and toilets.

Outside, to the rear of the property, is a yard which provides ample private off-road parking. The property is accessed at the front from Kirkby Stephen main street and also from the rear at Faraday Road. The vendors own both accesses and the yard, however neighbouring properties have rights of way over both to unload.

There is massive scope to develop and improve/change the property and the business. It is an excellent business opportunity for owner occupiers or investment property. Physical viewing is by appointment only. Video viewing available.
