Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this exceptional freehold zoo which has a proud history dating back to 1988. Since 2000 it has been owned and run by our clients who are only now placing it onto the market due to their strong desires for retirement. The zoo which is run with the assistance of staff achieves a respectable advised annual turnover of 176,000. The facility has a retail shop and cafe which also supplies pet foods and associated goods. The zoo also offers daily talks to schools and universities and offers very popular pony rides. The facility holds for over 150 different species which are shown through its very well presented 2 acre facility. The site is situated within a total of 12 acres which includes a self contained two bedroom owners' bungalow and 10 acre animal field. This is a highly unusual opportunity for an individual or couple who is looking for a lifestyle business situated in a very desirable seaside location. We would like to urge very early interest in this opportunity as businesses of this calibre and nature rarely appear onto the market.
