Aysgarth Yore Mill Craft Shop and Gallery & Mill Race teashop presents a unique opportunity to purchase an investment property in the Heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
Aysgarth Falls has attracted visitors for over 200 years. William Wordsworth, John Ruskin and J M W Turner have all recognised The Falls' outstanding beauty. More recently The Falls were used as a location in the Kevin Costner film Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. It is undoubtedly a 'tourist hotspot'. They are located in close proximity to the busy A684 tourist road in a central position between Leyburn and Hawes.
The Village of Aysgarth itself is a popular village with an excellent range of amenities. It has 2 pubs, a shop and garage, church, chapel, doctors and village hall. There are excellent walks in all directions including The Pennine Way, Coast to Coast and The Dales Way. The popular Herriot Way walking route starts in Aysgarth.
Yore Mill, built in 1784, was previously used as a cotton, woollen and corn mill. The building is ideally positioned on the bridge overlooking the upper falls, providing a fantastic setting and excellent location. Over the years, the building has been split into two commercial parts, each having excellent tenants and each with a recently renewed ten-year lease. Together the leases offer an existing income of £26,700 per annum.
The Mill Race Teashop itself has a wealth of character with fantastic, exposed beams and stone archway. The ground floor offers a spacious shop/tearoom, along with a catering kitchen. To the lower ground floor there is a large storeroom and toilets.
