A long established and highly regarded licensed boarding kennels and cattery, located in the popular seaside town of Blackpool on the Fylde coast.

Charnwood Boarding Kennels and Cattery occupies a pleasant semi-rural position on Division Lane in the Marton Moss district, close to open countryside, yet just a short distance from the major commuter routes and within easy reach of the M55 and connecting motorway networks.

The business is therefore ideally placed for neighbouring towns and villages ensuring regular repeat trade and also new custom from throughout the Fylde and surrounding areas.

Having been successfully operated by the present owners since 2004, this well-known business boasts an extensive and loyal customer base with frequent referrals and recommendations. Charnwood Boarding Kennels and Cattery is successful due to the good name it has established over the years.

There is a genuine opportunity for purchasers to continue to build and develop the business from the existing customer base, with potential to also introduce a grooming service which will naturally increase the turnover and overall profitability.

The modern kennel and cattery facilities are well appointed creating a warm, secure and clean boarding environment.

This is an excellent business and a substantial freehold property which is only now being offered for sale due to retirement.

The commanding and impressive detached property has been extensively modernised and updated to create two delightful family homes with 6 bedrooms and an inter-connecting first floor door.
