Whimple Stores village shop and post office has gone on the market for £425,000.

The freehold of the popular premises and its self-contained accommodation, in The Square, has been put up for sale.

A spokesperson for commercial property specialists Stonesmith said: “Owned by our clients for seven years, the property has benefitted from continued investment and improvements during this time, including the recent refurbishment of the shop with commercial non-slip flooring fitted throughout.

“This impressive business has gone from strength-to-strength and an opportunity now exists for new owners to purchase this profitable business opportunity, combined with a spacious family home.

“Our clients purchased the business in 2013 and it has shown year-on-year sales growth during their ownership.

“The business enjoys good levels of regular repeat local trade, together with some passing trade, such is the ease of access and car parking.”

The Stonesmith spokesperson added: “Incorporating the post office, in the centre of the East Devon village of Whimple, the business occupies a prominent and highly-visible trading position on The Square, overlooking the village church.

“Whimple is a popular and much sought-after East Devon village, with an active village community and benefitting from two pubs, a primary school and a railway station on the Exeter to London Waterloo line.

“Transport links are excellent, with the A30 dual carriageway approximately one mile away, which provides swift access to the city of Exeter with its international airport and motorway access.

“The market town of Honiton is 10 miles away.”
