Local operators buy Keswick coffee shop

The Wild Strawberry, one of the longest-established coffee shops in the Cumbrian market town of Keswick, has been sold to local operators Gary and Donna Macrae.

The Macraes ran the Langstrath Country Inn at Stonethwaite for 15 years.

The Wild Strawberry, which trades during the daytime, has an 38-seat coffee shop on the ground floor and another 34 seats on the first floor.

It incorporates two-bedroom owners' accommodation and a small rear yard.

The Manchester office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off an asking price of £575,000 on behalf of Paul and Nicola Dennis, who are moving to Yorkshire.
