Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Absolutely Fabulous Florist.

The business has been operated by the current owner for over 5 years and is well established in the local community and surrounding areas. Being located in the centre of Ashbourne and very accessible, the business benefits from a regular passing trade and is convenient for those last-minute collections.

The business has built an enviable reputation over the years for quality and service specialising in flower arrangements for weddings, funerals, private celebrations and corporate events giving expert advice for choosing the right flowers for that special occasion.

Due to family commitments this rare and exciting opportunity has now become available and offers the chance for a new operator to build on the reputation of the site and take it to the next level.

The business would benefit from either an established florist looking for an additional site as well as a private individual looking for a fresh and exciting business opportunity with plenty of growth potential.

The business benefits from its location in the centre of Ashbourne as well as being located in period premises owned by Derby City Council which is spread over three floors on very attractive lease terms, which gives the opportunity for the new owner to greatly expand further within the existing site as well as the ability to introduce new products and services.

A turn key business opportunity with low in-going costs and an already well-established reputation.



We are advised the business is being sold as a Leasehold opportunity with the current rent passing at £12,744 per annum.

There is currently one year remaining of a 6-year lease with Derby City Council.


The opening hours are currently 9.00 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday, 9.00 am to 3.00 pm on Saturday.


The business is run and managed by the current vendor with 1 x part time staff member
