Business Description
Aspire is delighted to present for sale this fantastic freehold boarding kennels and cattery business, with additional kennels manufacturing company and private detached house, along with extensive shooting and fishing rights, ideally placed in Mitton, near Clitheroe, Lancashire.
This sizeable estate is surrounded by picturesque open countryside, in the heart of the Ribble Valley and on the doorstep of the Forest Of Bowland.
There is ample parking available, and a bus stop close by.
The local town of Clitheroe is accessible approximately 4 miles away, where there is a wide range of shops, businesses, amenities and leisure services, and the local train station.
The motorway network can be joined at the M65 at Blackburn or the M6 at Preston.

The estate includes a detached house, kennels and cattery, kennels manufacturing business, 4-car garage, numerous outbuildings including offices and a laundry room, and just under 2 acres of land incorporating 2 x paddocks and a duck pond. The business also boasts access to an enviable 860-acres of feilds, paddocks and woodland, which can be used for exercise / walking. There is also the benefit of shooting rights across this area, as well as 3 miles of river-side with fishing rights.

The kennels and cattery business has been established for over 30 years, and is only now offered for reluctant sale due to retirement. The current owner is well respected in the area, and has developed an enviable reputation and an extensive loyal client base. This generates much repeat trade and word-of-mouth recommendations. The business provides short and long term accommodation for both cats and dogs, and the current owner is also involved in the Springer rescue group, allocating a small number of kennels for their use.

Externally, the grounds accommodate a variety of buildings:
59 Kennels, which all have internal runs, are triple glazed, and which have been recently re-roofed. There are also 7 different exercise areas.
Cattery, with 20 double cat units.
Numerous office buildings.
Photography studio and office.
Laundry room.
4-car garage.
There is also a dog grooming unit, which is rented out for between £80.00 - £120.00 per week, depending on the tenancy length.

The fabulous private accommodation has many features including character beams throughout and a number of original fireplaces, and briefly consists of:
Side entrance with hallway leading to kitchen with dining area accommodating a Rangemaster cooker and ovens, fitted wall and base units, exposed beams.
Sun room with stone flag flooring, wood burning stove and double doors leading out to gardens.
Main lounge incorporating feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove.
Hallway with tiled flooring, leading to the main front door.
Office/study room with tiled floor. This could be used as a 4th bedroom.
Dining room with fireplace.

An internal staircase leads up to the 1st floor landing, giving access to:
Master bedroom, which has fantastic views across the fields to Pendle Hill. The room incorporates fitted wardrobes and there is an en-suite shower room with walk-in power shower, bath, basin and WC.
2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, which has a walk-in shower, bath, basin and WC.

There may be some potential to add another storey to the side to create more bedrooms; this would be subject to appropriate planning permission.

The grounds could easily be used for additional businesses; there is the potential for a retail shop on site, and the presence of an already successful commercial joinery business presents opportunities in other areas.
There is ample space to the front of the premises to create a private driveway, allowing the main house to be kept apart from the businesses.

The kennels systems manufacturing business is available under separate negotiation for offers in the region of £95,000. This company has been established for over 30 years and is currently run at a pace to suit. The business has a wide range of customers, from professional breeders thorough to individual owners, and also high profile commercial clients.
A full range of superior low-maintenance kennels are available, from a single domestic kennel through to commercial boarding kennels and catteries. The owner has developed a reputation for providing high quality, well-made products, with materials sourced in the UK.
There is also a range of accessories stocked, such as kennel heaters, dog beds and bowl holders.

The annual turnover is £150,000

The business operates from a large steel and block joinery unit on the estate. The unit accommodates ample workspace along with an office, kitchen and mezzanine level. The premises are well equipped with a range of specialist machinery including 4 x welders, metal chop saws, panel saws, stand drills, riveters, air compressor, numerous hand held tools and joinery equipment.
