Full description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market on a Freehold basis this well-established boarding kennels business that can only be described as a true “turn key” operation, along with stunning owner’s accommodation that comprises of a detached 5 bedroom villa, with breath-taking countryside views

The business is only now being offered to the market as it’s our client’s desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

Yonderton Canine Care & Kennels is a long established and very well-respected boarding kennels with an excellent reputation offering an exceptional level of high standard canine care, including:

• Full boarding facilities
• Day care services
• Owner dog washing facilities
• Lead walking along with supervised enclosed free running play sessions
• All delivered in a fantastically presented, purpose-built facility

The boarding kennels side to the business includes:

• Accommodation for a large number of boarding dogs a with 11 single and 5 double kennels that are individually heated and constructed from reinforced high-density polyethylene ensuring safety
• security (with CCTV installed)
• Insulation
• Preparation room and isolation unit.

The business also benefits from a separate day care centre & washing / grooming area that was formerly used as a hydro therapy treatment area.

The current owners also run a wholesale dog food business from the premises where clients can order dog food direct in bulk and have this delivered to their home.

We feel there is scope to increase turnover of the business by:

• Undertaking of a robust localised marketing campaign
• Updating & promotion of the website to include online booking facilities
• Perhaps an online retail outlet for dog supplies/toys & gifts
• Re-introducing the hydro therapy service for client’s dogs
• Possible introduction of a cattery boarding service.

Subject to consents there is also the option to extend the main kennels side of the business with a possible extension to the current business premises.

This is an outstanding, well run “turn key life style” business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level.

Very rarely do businesses of this calibre with outstanding owners accommodation come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
