Business description

A delightful Kennels and Cattery was established around the year 1998 by the current owner and is only being offered for sale due to our client’s wish to retire after many years within the sector. The kennels sit within a plot of around 4 acres of landscaped and mature gardens and also benefits from a deceptively spacious three-bedroom detached property which is laid out over three floors. The property sits in an elevated position which generates spectacular views over the South Downs.

The business is located in a sought-after area within a semi-rural region of East Sussex.

During the time the business has traded, it has become an extremely well known and very well-respected kennels and cattery, which benefits from a large database of loyal clients who use the business on a regular basis throughout the year. Customers come from not only from the local area but also further afield, such is the reputation for the level of animal care, but also given its geographic location for people traveling.

The kennels and cattery chalets are presented to a good standard and have been well maintained over the years. There are two kennel blocks and two cattery blocks, all of which have a mix of family, double and singles. The kennels are brick built and the cattery chalets are timber and mesh construction.

In addition to an exercise area, there are eight large external pens which are used for both long term boarders and daily creche customers who use the ‘doggy day care’ which also generates an additional income and has become extremely popular with customers working locally and who can use the service on a daily basis from Monday to Friday. 

The kennels also has its own self-contained staff area where feeding, bathing and dog grooming services are provided.
