DESCRIPTION
This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase an outstanding and highly renowned Cattery with a truly outstanding and enviable reputation. Located in the semi rural village of Glais, near Swansea in South Wales, Abertawe 5* Country Hotel for Cats has been providing the highest possible standard of care for Cats in the area for the past 15 years.

Located in a beautiful and tranquil area on Ynysymond Road, the Cattery is easily accessible from the passing A4067 which links directly to the busy M4 - South Wales's main motorway and economic lifeblood, and therefore widely attracts clients from the surrounding areas. It is situated in an ideal location for customers travelling to Cardiff International Airport from South and West Wales, and even attracts customers from much further away due to its impeccable reputation.

The business itself is set in a stunning 4 bedroom semi detached property within 5 acres of very picturesque land. The dwelling and Cattery occupy some 3 acres of land, whilst the remaining is used for stables and grazing, with a good size woodland area; all of which has been securely fenced off. There is ample room to either increase the size of Cattery, or to increase the number of stables to either accommodate livery or a riding school.

Whilst the property retains a lot of its original features and character, it has been modernised internally and is decorated to a very high standard. There are electronic security gates, full CCTV coverage, and a private driveway to the property from the main road, providing a completely safe and secure environment; something that the large client base truly appreciates.

Having been established for over 15 years, and run by the present owners for that entire time, the business has acquired a truly enviable reputation within the sector and subsequently enjoys an extensive and loyal customer base with frequent referrals and recommendations. The business therefore attracts regular repeat business and also new custom from the surrounding areas and further a field. This is reflected in the historically high occupancy levels achieved all year around. The business is only now being offered for sale due to ill health, and the current owner's inability to cope with the rapidly growing business by themselves.

The purpose built Cattery facilities are truly exceptional and are a major contributing factor to its remarkable reputation. They provide immaculately clean and comfortable living areas, with each spacious pen kept and maintained at the highest possible standard. The pens provide a safe, warm and secure environment set in a peaceful and tranquil surrounding with breathtaking views from each.

The business is successful due to the good name it has established over the past 15 years and its reputation for maintaining very high standards. There is a great opportunity for purchasers to continue to build and develop the business from the existing customer base. There is ample space in the large grounds to add additional pens without compromising the stunning surroundings.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification.

CATTERY AREA
The very impressive purpose built cattery facilities offer a warm, welcoming environment. Located up a slight hill to the rear of the property as you enter the grounds, each spacious pen faces the property and therefore has a view of the beautiful grounds in which it is set, giving a sense of freedom and openness. There are two separate rows, one directly overlooking a central paddock that houses some goats and peacock's, and the second slightly further back to the rear of the customer parking area that looks over the entire estate.

Each pen is protected from the elements by removable plastic wind breakers that can be lifted during the warmer months. Every single pen is kept and maintained to a very high standard, and the current owners pride themselves on their cleanliness. There are two separate food storage and preparation areas and a small office for visitors. There is a opportunity to have a small shop to generate additional income.

There is a separate isolation/transfer section of pens within a completely secure large barn that is also used to accommodate rabbits and guinea pig's; with additional pens located to the very front of the premises completely separate from the main cattery area. The facilities as a whole are second to none and are a major factor in the fantastic reputation this business has earned.

TENURE
We are advised that the property is freehold.

SUMMARY
Genuine opportunity to acquire a successful business set in a stunning home in a superb rural location. Only offered for sale due to ill health. To avoid disappointment, viewing is highly recommended.
