Cattery Description
Courtyard cattery is set in the fringes of a 1300 century wool town in Devon. Spectacular views and a lovely setting. The cattery has been running since 1986 from repeat trade and word of mouth of a very high reputation which brings in new customers. The location is excellent for surrounding areas and its close proximity to Exeter, M5, airport and roads to Torquay, Plymouth and Cornwall. The local town is less than 5 minutes away and has a variety of shops, cafes, doctors surgeries, town hall, schools, bus routes and farmers market.

The purpose built cattery facilities in our opinion are superb. Each pen can accommodate 2 cats from the same family, or there are a choice of family units. All pens look out onto the courtyard, which is open aspect. The cattery creates a unique and very desirable boarding area.

The cattery is licensed by Teighbridge Council and is inspected yearly and has never had any problems. It also has not had any illness. This is because of the standard of hygiene and very good management.

There is a large parking area and the cattery has its own entrance. The reception area is spacious with WC, store room and a fully functioning kitchen with washing and drying machines and separate food storage and preparation areas.

There is scope to either extend the cattery or to set up a 'farm style' shop, or even run an assortment of businesses from the 1.5 acres (subject to planning permission). The views all around are spectacular and relaxing.

The cattery is run as a lifestyle business, but if it was to be taken further, the turnover would increase considerably. The present owners have other business interests that takes up their time. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the quality of the business and surrounding land.

Trading information will be supplied to seriously interested parties after viewing.
