Widecombe-in-the-Moor lies within the vale of the East Webburn River. The ridge of Hamel Down, rising to 1,697 feet above sea level, separates the valley from that of the West Webburn before they both meet the River Dart. According to the Widecombe official website there are 196 households in the village although it’s large and sprawling parish stretches for many miles and encompasses dozens of isolated cottages and farms. The subject property is slightly set back from the main village road (B3387), adjacent to the Coach Park and the Village Green.

In addition to the Cafe on the Green, there are several gift shops in the village including a National Trust Shop, another cafe and two public houses; The Old Inn and the Rugglestone Inn. The Village is probably best known for Widecombe Fair, held annually on the second Tuesday of each September, attracting countless visitors. Dartmoor is a unique place with its wild open moorlands, deep river valleys and rare wildlife; a very popular place to visit and explore throughout the year.
A substantial single storey, detached property sitting in a generous plot on the edge of Widecombe Green. The property was purchased by our clients in 2015 and underwent a total refurbishment including all services and a complete re-figuration of the trading spaces and ‘back of house’ areas. The property has been completely re-equipped with an excellent commercial trade inventory and the finished product is a beautifully designed café/restaurant, bursting with character and warmth which has been finished to an extremely high standard. To the rear of the premise is a traditional style 'chalet' building which was once used as owner’s accommodation however is now unused. The current owners have recently secured planning for a particularly attractive two bedroom owner’s dwelling which would enhance the building further. Since reopening in April 2015 the business has gone from strength to strength and now boosts a strong turnover with impressive net profits.
