DESCRIPTION
This is a golden opportunity to purchase an exceptionally well presented licensed kennels, cattery and small animals boarding facility, with an additional local authority contract. With the facilities for equestrian purposes, which is located in the stunning Isle Of Wight countryside at Newchurch, close to Sandown. The business is set within some of the most stunning rural views in the area, not to mention the proximity to the best riding bridle ways on the island.

DJ’s Animal Boarding holds an excellent reputation due to being large enough to handle all the clients' requests and small enough to maintain a personal service to all the dogs, cats and small animals entrusted within their care.

The tranquil countryside setting is easily accessible being just 20 minutes from the East Cowes Ferry, which links the island to Southampton and the daily hovercraft service to Postsmouth. DJ’s is one of only 6 boarding kennels on the island and it is the only one to offer boarding to a full range of animals. It aims to offer boarding to everything from horses to hamsters.

Newchurch is less than 3 miles from Sandown, a major tourist and shopping centre on the east coast of the island. It is a sleepy tranquil village and is home to a variety of tourist attractions like Amazon World.

The business draws its clients from the whole island plus tourists holidaying in the area.

DJ’s Animal Boarding was created by the owners in September 2007, being a prior equestrian centre and under ownership of the current owners since April 2007. The business has been developed by the owners in to the current business, showing exceptional growth each year and has steadily grown to its current size. The boarding facility is currently licensed for 31 dogs, 12 cats and a variety of smaller animals, which has proved to not only be popular but also very profitable with little input and has the potential to increase this size if required. This is the only facility of its type on the island.
