Full Details

This Vineyard is a once in a lifetime opportunity to not just purchase a home, but an entire lifestyle.

The introduction of six modern lodges, an architectural marvel completed in 2017, has garnered substantial attention and bookings. The ingeniously crafted contemporary design of the restaurant, events venue, and holiday accommodations has proven instrumental in amplifying the success of wine sales. This triumph is further fuelled by the popularity of winery tours and exclusive 'Rent a Vine' packages.

The pièce de résistance is the newly minted 'Vintner' events room, a haven of sophistication, hosting business conferences, meetings, birthdays, and wedding receptions. With captivating outside seating areas providing breathtaking views over the valley to the distant sea at Teignmouth, this gastronomic haven, both indoors and outdoors, accommodates up to 205 covers. The bistro remains a focal point for wine sales, attaining maximum bottle prices at the table. The symbiotic relationship with wine tours and lodge accommodations ensures a steady influx of patrons, a dynamic poised for further growth with potential accommodation expansion in the future, subject to planning

A palatial four-bedroom owner/manager residence, a recent addition, offers expansive and opulent living spaces, elevating the standard for on-site proprietors or employed management.

The Vineyard, a bastion of tradition, yields an impressive average of 12,000 bottles annually (2019, 2018, and 2017), spanning red, white, rose, and sparkling varieties. The current staffing structure allows for wine-making expertise to be optional, with wine sales flourishing, complemented by sought-after wine tours and the exclusive 'Rent a Vine' experience. A substantial investment in winery equipment and infrastructure, along with a bonded warehouse housing thousands of bottles, positions the vineyard for robust future sales, particularly with the events venue now firmly established.

The vast property, spanning approximately 15 acres, is predominantly dedicated to vines, interspersed with pasture and rugged terrain at the farthest reaches. On-site amenities include a convenient parking lot and a purpose-built machinery barn boasting 3-phase electricity and workshop space. Grounds with the potential for additional lodges, pending necessary permissions, hint at untapped possibilities. A natural spring, with previous extraction permissions of 20,000 litres per day (requiring updating), presents a unique opportunity for local spring water production and sales, adding yet another layer of potential prosperity to this grand estate.

Location-wise, the property sits atop the charming village of Bishopsteignton, commanding awe-inspiring views of the village and the estuary below. The village boasts an array of amenities, including a Post Office/pharmacy, primary school, doctors' surgery, a pub, church, and village hall. Excellent accessibility to major roads, with the A380 dual carriageway merely 2½ miles away, and proximity to coastal towns like Teignmouth and Shaldon add to its allure. Train stations in Teignmouth and nearby Newton Abbot, along with the convenience of reaching Exeter, Torbay, and Dartmoor National Park, contribute to its strategic location.
