Unique Seafront Coffee Ice Cream & Snack Bar For Sale

We are selling The Beach Hut 🙁 WHY? 🙂

Well, after a great couple of years, we, as a family (my real fam, not Beach Hut Fam) have decided that we need a little more time overseas – having spent a large part of my life travelling and loving it – I want the nippers to do so too. So, we have bought a house in Andalucia that we intend to spend a lot more time at, and run as a Holiday Letting! Simple!

Now, this presents a great opportunity for someone to lead a new life at the Beach Hut – its a fantastic lifestyle business with one of the best office window views in the UK! – Just contact me for more inf0.

Extremely rare opportunity to purchase a fantastic seafront business in an enviable location right on the historic Coble Landing in Filey.

Due to the status of Coble Landing, businesses very rarely become available here, and in particular ones without a restricted sales covenant in the lease (restricting sales of particular items that other are only permitted to sell). The Beach Hut benefits from a secure term lease and a non-restrictive lease (in terms of product sales).

The business was established and opened in early 2015 with a unique style of branding. Aimed at the growing premium coffee/ice cream shop market, the business sells locally produced premium coffee, local scoop ice cream as well as other food items. The shop is equipped with premium catering equipment such as a La Spazial Espresso Machine, ‘grind on demand’ coffee grinder, LCD controlled soft serve ice cream machine, scoop freezer, triple slush machine, automatic orange juicer, multiple freezers, electronic modern POS system, cooling equipment, a griddle and much more.

The internal shop fit out (completed in 2015) includes full wall cladding of fire proof hygiene board, brand new fire proof suspended ceiling, brand new plumbing, electrics and safety flooring, staff toilet as well as a new full-length electric night shutter. On the last local authority Environmental Health Inspection, the premises were awarded a maximum 5 Star Rating.

The real gem, however, is the eye-catching shop frontage that was professionally constructed and designed in order maximise awareness, style, and impact of the business. Like the interior, the frontage was new in 2015 and includes a vinyl clad main adverting area constructed using metal diamond sheeting (this means the look can be changed by changing only the vinyl.) There are also LED menu boxes at the front for high impact adverting.

In the first year, the business performed excellently with a full menu of hot and cold food. The business then traded through the winter and into the summer of 2016 with impressive results. Presently it has reduced hours opening weekends due to other business commitments of the owner.

This business would be a great opportunity for anyone who dreams of working in an environment of exceptional natural beauty with a modern and easy to manage business, whilst earning a good living. The business would suit a couple or individual who can give it the attention it deserves.

The current owner of the business now has other commitments that mean he no longer has the time to spend managing this business.

Don’t miss out on this rare business opportunity – the last similar business to sell on Coble Landing went for circa £80,000 with a restrictive sales covenant (a couple of years ago), and this reflects the rarity and earnings potential in this prime spot.

As this business is in its relative infancy, the asking price is reflective although trading figures are strong.

Owner financed payment options to buy the business may be available to the right purchaser, however, a substantial up-front payment will be required in this instance.

The Beach Hut Filey Iced Coffee Recipe

When it comes to Hot Summer days, or warm spring ones for that matter, sometimes a great hot coffee just doesn’t spring to mind. That’s where my years living in Greece come in and the excellent Greek Frappe’ Iced Coffee hot the spot perfectly.

Long before the Coffee Majors in the UK were promoting their summer coffee offerings, I was sat in the sweltering heat of Rhodes Town sipping ice cold Greek Coffee’s, in fact one of the first Greek sentences I learned was ‘One Frappe’ Medium with Milk Please!’

So, here is my recipe for the Iced Coffee we sell at my Beach Hut Cafe on the Coble Landing in Filey.

You will need

– One Double Espresso Shot of Baytown Coffee ‘Bolts’ Blend

– 5 Large Ice Cubes

– Four cubes of rough cut white sugar

– 350 ml Full Fat Milk

– Optional Caramel Flavour Shot


Depending on your Coffee set-up at home, produce a double shot of your preferred blend of Coffee. At the Beach Shack, we only use Baytown Coffee’s ‘Bolts’ blend. While the shot is still red hot, mix in your four sugar cubes until dissolved.

Place your ice in a large glass and pour in your milk. Next, add your shot of coffee and stir. At this point, you can add caramel to taste. And, that is it! You can alter the sweetness to taste but the key to this drink is a good strong 100% Aribica Bean coffee so as not to be too bitter.

Come down and see us to try one that we have made for you!
