Available on request

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the stunning Oakworth Cattery.

The business has been established for over 25 years with our client owning for the last 11 years.

Our client has substantially refurbished and extended the Cattery to a very high standard during her ownership, and continues to do so. The business now has the enviable reputation of being the area’s number one boarding Cattery.

The Cattery is registered for 76 cats and is purpose built and to the highest of standards. The original wooden Cattery block, now refurbished, has 20 pens. A further smaller block has 2 family pens.

A new stone built block opened in 2013 is a fabulous luxury UPVC Cattery with double glazed UPVC windows and doors, insulation and tiled floors providing 14 pens.

There are also 4 further wooden isolation/overspill pens in 2 blocks at the bottom of the residential garden. The business also provides small animal boarding.

Turnover increases generically on a yearly basis with the reputation being second to none. There are many repeat and loyal customers. There is no reason why turnover cannot continue to grow especially with added drive, enthusiasm, addition of kennels and increased marketing.

The Cattery is run from the grounds of a superb 4 bedroomed family accommodation with large gardens.

The owner is reluctantly selling for family reasons.

This is an excellent business with superb accommodation set in a stunning location. It would ideally suit a couple or family looking for a change in lifestyle.
