The business is located in the unusually named area of Halfway on the outskirts of the City of Sheffield in South Yorkshire.

Situated in a prime position on the B6058 Rotherham Road, a main thoroughfare through this densely populated village.

The area is well served by public transport, the Sheffield supertram terminates at Halfway with a large park and ride facility enabling easy commute to the city and surrounding areas and there are also frequent bus services to the village.

Halfway also benefits from excellent road links and lies to the west of the M1 motorway and national network beyond.
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the attractive Helloth Farm Cottage Pet Supplies and Cattery. The business was originally established around 20 years ago in the supply of animal feeds. When our client took over some 6 years ago he introduced a cattery and this profitable concern is now reluctantly offered for sale due to our client's family commitments.

Helloth Farm Cottage stocks all types of animal feed including supplies for horses, pigs, goats and chicken feed, we feel the stock lines could be developed further as the size of the premises certainly has the capacity for this expansion and indeed the shop has had planning permission previously for a second floor extension which has now lapsed but could be resubmitted.

Furthermore, either at the side of the property or a section of the garden could be utilised as additional storage as there is ample space. The business could then take advantage of stocking bulk supplies or additional feeds therefore increasing revenue.

The business also has a line of fishing tackle and bait, again limited at the moment but with several fishing lakes in close proximity these is an ideal market to target. The business also offers free delivery in the locality.

The build of the cattery took a year so has only been trading for approximately 5 years and is still growing. Therefore 82% of the turnover is from the sale of animal feeds and 18% from the cattery offering massive scope for development possibly by the development of a website and advertising, in particular around the schools in the vicinity.

The farm cottage itself is a fantastic large 4 bedroomed property within extensive grounds and mature garden. The single storey shop is adjoining and the cattery is a purpose built building consisting of 14 single pens and 1 double.

We would highly recommend this wonderful sustainable business with fantastic family home with the opportunity for further development.
