Tania Gibbons opened Dr Fox’s Tearoom on Knightstone Island nearly three years ago but said it was time to move on.

The advert for the building describes it as a ‘popular tea room’ in a prime location, with an annual turnover of £170,000.

It is in a Grade II listed building, with an outside seating area.

Ms Gibbons said it was just four walls when she took over.

“I have achieved my goal. When I started, it was just four walls and it’s gone from nothing to where it is now.

“I hope the people who take it over will do all the things I can’t because I have not got the energy as a single person.

“I cannot do the best for the tea room now.”

She said she is now hoping to start a dog washing business.
