Description
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a long established and highly regarded licenced Boarding Kennels and Cattery which is located in the semi-rural hamlet of Blyton Carr just a short distance from the bustling Lincolnshire town of Gainsborough.
Lyndarlea Boarding Kennels occupies an idyllic setting at the end of a private lane, nestling amongst open countryside yet is only a 10-minute drive from Gainsborough with its shops, amities and restaurants with the major commuter routes are close at hand. The business is therefore ideally placed for ensuring regular repeat trade from neighbouring towns and villages as well as attracting new custom from throughout the Lincolnshire area.
Lyndarlea Kennels has successfully operated in the locality for the past 16 years and during that time this well-known business has acquired a truly enviable reputation boasting an extensive and loyal customer base whilst enjoying frequent referrals and recommendations.
The boarding facilities are neatly appointed creating a warm, secure and clean boarding environment.
The business is successful due to the good name it has established over the years yet still offers genuine potential for future growth and development. With this in mind, the business represents a fantastic purchase for an energetic couple who can introduce additional facilities such as grooming, a retail shop with an e-commerce facility as well as boarding smaller animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, birds etc. These enhancements will naturally increase the turnover of the business whilst ultimately generating additional profitability.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a strong business and a delightful family home which is situated in such a pleasant setting.
Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, viewing is highly recommended at the earliest opportunity.
