Smart Gardens & Tea Rooms occupy a prominent trading position on Scorton Road, in the delightful village of Brompton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire. The garden centre boasts excellent road access, being just off the busy A6136 and less than a mile from the A1(M). Catterick lies less than 2 miles to the south, while the popular market town of Richmond lies less than 4 miles to the west. The beautiful North Yorkshire countryside surrounds the business and the area is very popular with tourists and visitors. Darlington lies 10 miles to the north and Ripon is 22 miles to the south.

Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular garden centre with tea rooms, which was established by our clients in 2008 and which is only now being placed on the market due to our clients' wish to retire. Smart Gardens & Tea Rooms generates a turnover in the region of 240,000 per annum with a gross profit of 45% derived from the sale of a wide range of garden related goods including, plants, pots, compost, gardening tools and accessories, giftware as well as hot and cold meals in the tea rooms. The business boasts an excellent reputation with many repeat customers. A new owner could increase turnover by perhaps, embarking on a modest advertising campaign, and offer late night openings once or twice a week. There is potential to operate an ice cream parlour on the site, for which we believe there is the demand. There is a web site in place which gives information about the products and services offered with some on-line retailing. The business benefits from a self-contained 1 bedroom flat, ideal for use as owners' accommodation. We feel this is an ideal opportunity to acquire an established and profitable garden centre with tea rooms, in such a delightful location and with scope for further growth. Early discussions with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
