DESCRIPTION
This is a rare opportunity to purchase an established and highly renowned cattery, which is located in the desirable and much sought after area of Worcester.

The cattery occupies a peaceful setting amongst open countryside, yet is also conveniently situated for neighbouring towns and villages being located close to the major commuter routes.

Having successfully operated in the locality for over twenty years by our client, it has traded as a cattery for over thirty years. The current owners have dedicated their time and effort to looking after cats that are brought to them from the RSPCA. This currently involves the business having a collection service. However, the potential in the area and demand for the cattery is excellent as our client turns away potential additional customers due to the RSPCA work.

The modern facilities are superbly presented creating a warm, peaceful environment with views across the gardens and wooded areas.

The business is successful due to the good name it has established over the years and there is genuine potential for a new owner to build and develop the business from the existing customer base.

There are many areas for development, including turning the main part of the property into a bed and breakfast and using the annex for private accommodation. The property also has fishing rights for trout on the river Teme, that is located within the grounds.

Previously there were six pegs that could be reinstated. The business could also move away from the rescue work opting for private customers, as the fee levels could be greatly increased.

We have also been advised by our client that continued running of cattery is not required.

This is a first class opportunity, which is only now being offered for sale due to our clients other business interests and a viewing is therefore highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
