REF 47935: Former cattery business established late 80s early 90s. Situated in a sought after seaside town of East Sussex. Closed in November 2019 through choice. Neatly presented, well maintained cattery facilities. Licenced for approx. 100 cats.

Southwinds Boarding Cattery was established in the mid 1980s although it has been run under the current ownership since 1995 and is only being offered for sale due to our clients wish to retire after many years within the sector.
The overall plot is around 0.394 acre STS and benefits from a deceptively spacious, five bed, three bathroom semi detached property which is laid out over three floors. In addition to the family accommodation there is a one bedroom self contained flat on the first floor.
The business is located in the sought after coastal town of Eastbourne, East Sussex which is approx. 21 miles east of Brighton and approx. 17 miles west of historic Hastings. The property is also within easy reach of the A21, A22 and the A27 along with a regular train service direct to London Victoria in around 90 minutes during peak times. The business would therefore ideally suit a family looking for a lifestyle change within easy reach of London.
During the time the business was trading, it was an extremely well known and very well respected cattery which benefited from a large database of loyal clients who used the business on a regular basis throughout the year.
We have been advised that Southwinds is still the only cattery in Eastbourne and when trading, clients came from not only the local area but also further afield such was the reputation for the level of care provided. The cattery chalets are presented to a good standard, have been well maintained over the years and have a mix of family, double and single chalets
Summary. Superb opportunity to acquire a wonderful family home situated in a peaceful and sought after East Sussex seaside town along with what was a profitable business which had been successfully run for many years.
This opportunity offers genuine potential for future owners looking for a lifestyle change business. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the property and coastal location.
