Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market this unique popular garden centre which has been run and managed by our clients a successful husband and wife team for over thirty five years.
The garden centre is set within a beautiful 2 acre plot, stocking a vast array of plants, trees and shrubs. The business has established an enviable reputation for the quality of the plants at reasonable prices, seeing customers return time after time.
The business also has an onsite shop housing a wide variety of goods from the usual gardening related items such as tools, feeds, bulbs, water features, garden furniture, ornaments and barbecue's to name just a few to the more unusual lines such as clothing, hand crafted cards, cds and foods including jams, biscuits and sweets. Additionally, there is a popular wine shop specialising in English wines and specialist beers and ciders.
Further revenue is generated from the well presented fully licensed 120 cover restaurant offering a pleasant friendly atmosphere with a lovely conservatory overlooking the plants in the garden centre. The menu offers a selection of hot and cold food and drinks, a la carte menu with daily specials. The restaurant prides itself on its home cooked freshly prepared meals. The venue is also available for private functions.
Our clients advise us that planning permission is already in place for a 4000sq ft retail opportunity which would lend itself to the potential of introducing a supermarket/shopping chain and farmers market. Research has estimated this would bring in a further 30% increase in footfall and potential of £50,000 per annum rental income, as the garden centre is located in a recognised retail development area.
Very recently our clients have spent around £20,000 on the infrastructure and are just about to commence further refurbishment on the kitchen. This will include the latest cooking technology. The predicted cost is another £20,000.
Naturally, early viewing of this clearly sustainable and very profitable concern with development potential is highly recommended. With the business genuinely coming to the market as our clients look towards a well deserved retirement.
The business is located in Gloucestershire
