Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Water Garden, a family run business, which was established in 1994 and taken over fully by our client in 2016. Our client is now looking to pursue a different business interest.

The Water Garden specialises in Koi Carp and other cold water fish and have a wealth of experience in the aquatic industry. They give guidance and help in all areas of ponds from planning to construction through to stocking and maintenance.

The Water Garden stocks and sells cold water fish, including:

• Koi
• Pre-formed ponds
• Waterfalls and water features
• Liners and sealants
• Tanks
• Filters
• Pumps
• Food
• Pond plants
• Medication
• Spare parts
• Ornaments
• Accessories

Approximately two thirds of the turnover comes from shop sales and the remainder comes from external work including planning, construction and ongoing maintenance.

The business has a very good local reputation with repeat customers coming from a radius of approximately 20 miles.

The Water Garden is being sold with the website , has a Facebook page with many 5* reviews and has 5* Google reviews.

However, the business can be developed by employing a staff member to expand the external work as this is currently undertaken on evenings and weekends only.

Another area for development is to extend the premises by a mezzanine level to create an area for tropical fish and reptiles.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The Water Garden is located in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire in a popular shopping village that brings in a high footfall.
