Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this 4 bedroom property with trading kennels and cattery which was established in 1983 and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2013. Reluctantly our client is putting the property and business for sale due to our client's health problems.
Since our client took over the business they have invested time and money into the business and premises meaning that it is in full walk in condition. Our client informs us that the annual income currently runs at £150,000 which is derived from offering kennel and cattery facilities along with daycare and professional grooming services. The business offers a collection service in the purpose built dog van. The kennels are licensed for 68 dogs and 22 cats. There is scope to expand to offer hydrotherapy and increase the doggy day care facility which may increase income. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade together referrals and word of mouth recommendations. The business is currently owner operated with 10 part time staff and our client is happy to provide full training during the transition period. This business would ideally partnership and could afford a good standard of living. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, in a truly idyllic location, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this caliber rarely stay on the market for long.
This superb 4 bedroom detached property and kennels is located in Burwell, a village in Cambridgeshire, England. Burwell is situated on the edge of The Fens approximately 13 miles to the north west of Cambridge and 3 miles from Newmarket. The village is located at the head of Burwell Lode, a man-made waterway which connects it with the River Cam. The business stands on 2 acres and is located on a country road surrounded by open countryside. All in all this is an idyllic and truly desirable location. Burwell is about 10 miles north east of Cambridge and is close to the main A14 and A10 trunk roads connecting Cambridge to Newmarket and the town of Huntingdon and to the M11 motorway and beyond.
