This fantastic opportunity is situated off a quiet country road set in its own grounds just outside the village of Llanharan. The village of Llanharan includes a small selection of shops and a new railway station with services to Cardiff. There are several golf clubs in the area and the prestigious Vale of Glamorgan Country Club offers tennis, squash, yoga, a gymnasium, swimming pool, golf driving ranges and courses. The “Heritage Coast Conservation Area” lies along the southern and western sides of The Vale of Glamorgan and includes cliff-top walks and a mixture of stony and sandy beaches. Further afield is the Gower Peninsular off the Swansea coast, with its fine fishing, swimming and sailing facilities. Cardiff (Wales) Airport is some 17 miles and offers national and international flights with a daily service to London.

Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb kennels and cattery business which was established by our clients in 1993. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their desire to take well deserved retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have invested time and money in both the business and premises to the point where it is in full walk in condition. The business has been run at a pace that suits our clients lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at £104,471 with gross profit margins of 70% which is derived from offering 80 kennels and 30 cattery chalets along with obedience/agility classes for dogs. The property and business offer a unique opportunity to acquire a very desirable kennels & cattery business with 20 acres, including 2 paddocks which would be ideal for use as an equestrian centre. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
