Libra Court is situated in a lucrative town centre trading position, just off the main seafront and the main shopping thoroughfare of Fore Street where prominent eye-catching signage directs customers to the courtyard entrance. The courtyard also benefits from an additional entrance on York Street which runs parallel with the seafront/esplanade and is a busy thoroughfare used by visitors/shoppers making their way from the town centre. The attractive East Devon regency town of Sidmouth is an extremely affluent town, situated on the Jurassic Coast in an area officially designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The town has a resident population of approximately 15,000, which is boosted considerably by visitors to the town throughout the year particularly through the summer months.

Selleys also offers potential for incoming operators to develop their own style of trade, to suit their own personal requirements, taking advantage of this desirable catering business in this extremely popular East Devon coastal town. With solid levels of trade and profits, there is genuine potential to increase all aspects of the trade still further.
