Please note: the business is for sale as a whole and as a going concern. Parts of the inventory are not for sale separately, thank you.
There is no forward book, this has been deliberate - we don't want to disappoint people and have to give refunds, however we have been managing and replying to all enquiries, the business is currently running.
Questions, genuine enquiries and sensible offers welcomed (we are keen to sell soon due to relocation).
Thank you for your interest.
The business is well suited to being located in a farm, field, paddock, grounds/ gardens of large house, orchard or similar
We believe a higher cost per event could be charged in future, and the current asking price is less than 1x Summers worth of revenue
Don't have the time or resources to run this business to its large potential, alongside 2 other businesses.
Suited to May - September
