Country Harvest: The award-winning coffee and farm shop is for sale


Country Harvest in Ingleton is on the market £2.5million.

A highly admired coffee shop and farm shop in the north of England is being marketed by commercial real estate specialists Colliers.

Country Harvest is a family-owned business located just outside of Ingleton in North Yorkshire, between the Leeds/Bradford conurbation and Kendal. The establishment is perfectly situated on the main A65 tourist route to the UK’s best green spaces: the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Operating as a successful coffee shop, butchery, bakery, food hall and gift shop for the last 14 years, the establishment has built a prominent presence and excellent reputation in the north, receiving several awards including Young Butcher of the Year, 2021 Meat Management Awards and Travellers Choice Award Trip Advisor in 2020, placing them in the top 10 per cent of restaurants worldwide. 

Built in 1993, the property has since then been extended and maintained to the highest possible standard in the hands of the current owners Mike Clark and Gay Penn, who acquired the Country Harvest in 2008. During their ownership, they have invested heavily into growing and transforming the business, by adding a substantial area such as the famous “Christmas Cabin” in 2018, doubling its turnover to over £2.2million. Having enjoyed their many years of trading, they have decided to sell ahead of retirement.

Managing Director Mike Clark said: “Country Harvest is a fantastic business with diverse income from the delicatessen, butchery, clothing, traditional farm shop and coffee shop. The business has a particularly strong turnover and creditable profitability; it has been a real pleasure to be a part of its ever-growing journey.”

Country Harvest and its three acres of land is now on the market, offering growth for further expansion as there is potential for additional land to be purchased through separate negotiation. The coffee shop holds 70 covers inside with additional seating for 18 outside. Further features include modern, quality equipment throughout, extensive storage space, car parking facilities and breath-taking views of Ingleborough and the surrounding countryside.

Haydn Spedding, consultant of Hotels Agency team at Colliers comments: “We are pleased to bring such an exceptional property as Country Harvest to the market. The business has an excitingly large and untapped future. This is an incredible opportunity for investors to purchase a highly successful business with significant prospects to further develop the business and trade even further. It sits in such a superb position on the A65, bringing in trade from the multiple holiday homes in the neighbouring tourist areas.”
