Swaledale Woollens is a great opportunity to take on an existing, well known and popular profitable Dale’s business with accommodation.

This detached property sits in a prominent position within the picturesque village of Muker. The village is one of the most sought-after villages in Swaledale, being full of character and history. It is located on the Coast-to-Coast route and the Pennine Way, with a good community spirit. It has a village shop & tearoom, and good traditional pub.

Swaledale Woollens is a well-known business that has been trading for 50 years this coming summer. The business is well supported online and in the shop with good, profitable accounts. The business has been running by the current seller along with a couple of part time members of staff and a great team of knitters. The shop tends to open 7 days a week from March through to December. January and February have been traditionally quieter months so the shops opening hours are reduced.

The shop has a good frontage and a spacious shop front inside. There are two storerooms, an office and staff WC to the rear.

The flat above 'Strawbeck' can be accessed independently or via the shop. The accommodation is over the first floor, there is a fitted kitchen, spacious sitting room, good double bedroom, and family bathroom. There is a home office / second bedroom to the rear. The flat has been let out on a long-term basis; a current rental valuation would be £525 pcm. This is ideal owners’ accommodation and could also be used as an investment holiday let.

Externally, to the front is a South facing, flag stone patio area, ideal for parking. To the rear is access to the flat and space for the oil tank and boiler.

This property is a great opportunity to acquire a well-established Dales business with good living accommodation. The shop space lends itself to many uses, ready for a new owner to take on a new venture.

Accounts available upon request.
