Cattery/ Development Potential with Owner's Accommodation

For Sale
  • Reference: 13834 I
  • Location: Bideford, Devon
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Cottage Cattery, For Sale due only to our client's wish for a well-earned retirement after many years.

In essence, a substantial character cottage and residential property with plenty of land, and a 17-pen cattery business to the rear. The cattery is well presented and maintained and remains licensed for 36 cats. A feline home from home, serving a high demand for short term and holiday lay overs for cat owners throughout North Devon.

An enviable reputation built over many years, with plenty of repeat and regular clientele. As a 'FAB' listed operation, cats are housed in their own spacious and purpose built individual chalets, each with their own run and view of the gardens. Although it has recently been our client's decision to retire and close the cattery, the structure, and well maintained buildings and pens remain in situ and licensed.

The ongoing demand for the services remains extremely buoyant locally, and across North Devon. The business was previously run on an 80% repeat client base, with the addition of many local holiday makers wanted access to their pets.

Scope exists to reopen the cattery offering a husband wife team or small family unit a lovely lifestyle opportunity, or to simply purchase what is a lovely residential property
