Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market the very well established Windy Hill Cats and Dogs Hotel. This stunning business nestles within an idyllic countryside setting and boasts superb owner's accommodation set across 4 levels.

The business was originally founded back in 1984 and has been run by our clients a successful husband and wife team since inception in 2004. So successful is the business that no advertising is currently undertaken, with the business seeing much repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
