Crema Coffee House is located in the historic market town of Helmsley, accessed via the A170, 15 miles east of Thirsk, North Yorkshire. The town lies on the outskirts of the North York Moors National Park and enjoys a thriving tourist trade. Surrounded by famous attractions and nearby towns and cities such as Malton and York, Helmsley is an excellent place to stay to explore this wonderful part of England. 

The property is a terraced property situated in a busy market town. It is a two-storey property understood to date from the early 19th century and is of stone construction under a pitched tile roof.

The property briefly comprises:- 



A beautifully presented double fronted room, with entrance directly from the street. You are welcomed into the ground floor where there is table seating for 24. The room retains plenty of charm and character with a feature fireplace and wooden beams.

On the first floor is further seating for 26, comfy sofas and character features. TOILET FACILITIES are also located on this floor.

All trade areas are finished to a high standard. Our client has invested in a new staircase and undertaken extensive refurbishments throughout. 


To the rear of the property is a private rear garden with astro turf with seating for 22; an excellent space to utilise during the warmer months.

The Business

The business generates a regular net turnover in the region of £200,000 per annum with a good net profit. The cafe is extremely popular with tourists and the local community.

There is potential to increase turnover significantly by extending the business’s opening hours, operating year-round and increasing dining capacity (currently 50).
