Spatchcock Kennels is located in the village of Ablington, in acres of beautiful countryside in a picturesque part of the Cotswolds, close to Bibury and Cirencester and within a short distance of Cheltenham, Burford, Fairford and Stow-on-the-Wold.
Spatchcock Kennels is a family run business offering fully licensed, spacious kennels, some of which are capable of accommodating up to 4 dogs from the same family (depending on the size of the dogs). The business benefits from having a secure one-acre field close by for walking and exercise, in addition to authorised use of acres of farmland. Each pen has its own outdoor run and individual heating for comfort during the colder months. The turnover for y/e 2019 was £152,504.
There is no residential accommodation included with the business, however the local licensing authority allows the owner to live within a 30 minute vicinity of the kennels as long as emergency measures are in place. There are currently a number of farm cottages in the village undergoing renovation and will be available for rent Spring 2021. There is also the option for someone to stay overnight in the kennels as the grooming salon can accommodate a fold up bed and there are shower and kitchen facilities.
The current owners have run the kennels since 2016 and have made significant improvements to the building and doubled the turnover within 3 years, creating a business with an excellent reputation. During lockdown, changes were made to the layout of the building to create a grooming salon and shower room, giving additional income potential on top of the 2019 figures. Other services such as puppy training and socialisation classes have recently been added, as well as the hiring out of the secure field for customer use and use of an agility course.'
Summary. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a profitable boarding kennels business in a highly sought after and affluent area of the Cotswolds attracting very good fees. The business is well established and has been run to a high standard by the current owners and benefits from a very low rental arrangement with a long lease. Early viewing is highly recommended.
