REF 6503 – Leasehold Themed Tea Room
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold themed tea room located in the much sought-after, famous area of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.
Wrinkled Stocking Tea Room has been trading on Huddersfield Road for almost 40 years with our client in ownership since 2015. The tea room is positioned in the famous town of Holmfirth, home of “Last of The Summer Wine”. It is situated next door to “Nora Batty’s” house and above the Summer Wine Museum. The property was used for the external scenes and the upstairs window was used as “Compo’s” bedroom. This attracts visitors all year round. Our client offers a range of traditional tea room choices including cakes and tarts as well as teas, coffees and other beverages. Excellent reviews are noted on Trip Advisor, Facebook and Google and the business has a good social media presence. Since taking ownership in 2015, our client has also modernised the café and introduced the now famous afternoon teas along with event catering and private hire for events such as hen parties, baby showers, birthdays and so on. Weekends are extremely busy in this area with festivals held throughout the year in and around Holmfirth.
Huddersfield Road is a busy main road in the town of Holmfirth. This area is well linked by the M62 and A629 with good public transport links and plenty of parking. As detailed above, Holmfirth is famous as the home of “Last of The Summer Wine” and the area plays host to a number of festivals held throughout the year. There are numerous hotels, B&Bs, pubs, country walks and stunning scenery.
