Property description

Kingsteignton is a large village, situated on the northern edge of Newton Abbot, in South Devon. Reputed to be one of the largest villages in the UK, Kingsteignton was founded in the early 8th century as the centre of a vast Saxton estate, between Teignmouth and Manaton. Situated on the eastern edge of the Bovey basin clay pit, the village has grown over the last two centuries prospering on the opportunities of the clay mine. Kingsteignton is home to two high achieving primary schools and an excellent community college. In addition, there is a large hotel, two national supermarkets, a thriving industrial area and many local services.

The Drewdrop Inn lies within a heavily populated residential area, with all amenities close by. The Dewdrop Inn also has immediate access to the A380 South Devon to Exeter link road, which in turn links to the M5.

The village lies at the head of the Teign Estuary and is approximately 5 miles west of Teignmouth and 9 miles north of Torquay and the beautiful South Devon coastline. Dartmoor National Park is less than a 15-minute drive away.

General Information

The Business

The Dewdrop Inn is currently closed, following the sad passing of the former tenant, who had been in occupation for several decades.

The Dewdrop Inn has been an extremely popular 'locals pub' serving the immediate vicinity and the wider Kingsteignton community.

The availability of the Dewdrop Inn presents a great opportunity to buy a reasonably priced freehold business, which is a ‘turn key’ operation. Whilst the premises could benefit from a little updating in places, the pub has always been a firm favourite with locals and regulars who are waiting to return!

Rateable Value

2017 List: £9,300. Please note this is not Rates Payable. 100% Small Business Rate Relief will be available to eligible parties. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Billing Authority.
