Dessert Cabin, situated in Water Lane, Ashton-on-Ribble, is set to move premises due to five break ins and a “huge” rent increase.

Owners of the sweet treat shop have been left with no choice but to find a new shop after being broken into five times over the last five years.

A “huge” rent increase meant that the search for a new property was necessary due to “almost [feeling] pushed to move”, with the new shop located at 76 Pedders Lane – in what was the former Boots store that closed in April last year.

The owners “fell in love” with the new location being bigger, having its own parking, space for outdoor seating, on a bus route, just across from Ashton park and “excellent” security.

The building was previously used as a police station before being turned into a pharmacy.

Stacey Lambert, owner of Dessert Cabin said: “We’ve been at Water Lane for a little over five years now I think. In that time we’ve been broken into five times.”

Moving premises means that the shop can be open for longer and more jobs will come available.

Stacey added: “We’ll be open longer hours, be able to offer more products and hopefully be able to offer more jobs! The locals have been so excited. It’s an amazing buzz when people come over to ask and their faces light up when we say it’s a cake/dessert shop.

“Everyone has been wishing us luck and saying this is exactly what the area needs.”

Dessert Cabin are set to reopen at the new property on December 19 and will be offering a Christmas menu.

Initially there will be a small amount of seating to the front of the store but summer 2024 will see more outdoor seating added to the side of the property.

“We’ve really been so lucky and so blessed. This means everything to all of us and I feel it’s setting us up for a fantastic future!,” Stacey concluded.
