Village Store and Post Office with 3/4 Bedroom Flat Above

  • Tenure: For Sale, Freehold
  • Area: 289.37m² (3,113ft²)
  • Price: Offers over £480,000


We are marketing the well known Quantock Stores and Post Office premises due to impending retirement of the current owners who have been operating the village stores premises for over 10 years.

The property is situated in the centre of the sought after village of Nether Stowey, at the foothills of the Quantocks, offering a business opportunity with residential  accommodation up above for a prospective purchaser.

The Post Office is operated on the former contract and therefore benefits from fixed remuneration which is available to be transferred to any new Postmaster.

The current owners have also just agreed for the Post Office to become an Amazon Hub, providing a delivery location to collect and return customer Amazon packages.

Whilst the premises benefits from the existing use as a Post Office and Stores, which has been popular over the years, the property could be taken and the ground floor converted to residential, subject to planning without the need to retain the shop and Post Office or used for a variety of other businesses, which would benefit from shop front usage.


The accommodation is split as follows:
Ground Floor – 146.44m² (1,575.69ft²)
First Floor – 126.24m² (1,358.34ft²)
Second Floor – 16.69m² (179.58ft²)

Access to the property is afforded through 3 No. doors, two of which lead into the commercial retail store and the other leading to a rear access, which forms part of the curtilage of the property which we understand is shared with several adjoining properties.

The property benefits from large attic space which is currently used for storage but could be utilised subject to Planning, to create additional living accommodation.

The property has a long garden amenity to the rear.


Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage are connected to the property. Telephone lines available for connection subject to BT Regulations.

(We confirm that we have not tested any of the service installations and any purchaser must satisfy themselves independently as to the state and condition of such items.)

Method of Sale:

The property is being offered for sale of the Freehold, by informal tender with vacant possession on completion.

The Vendors own the Freehold, registered with Land Registry under the title number ST137411.

The Purchasers have the opportunity to continue the Post Office and retail store, with the ability to re-open the Tea Room, as appropriate. Accounts can be made available for the business, on an accountant to accountant basis.

All stock for the Store is to be purchased at valuation on the date of Transfer.
