Period single storey cottage | 3 beds | 1 acre | 68 dogs | luxury kennels | 6 figure t/o

Just reduced by £100k due to ill health  - a  pretty detached single storey former railway gatekeeper’s cottage dating back to 1850 of attractive Cambridgeshire White Brick construction under a slate roof, having been renovated, modernised, extended and improved by the current owners to an exceptionally high standard.  The immaculate grounds amount to just under an acre (subject to measured survey) and are completely secluded.  In an ideal location for business within easy access of the A14/A11/M11 and within about 15 miles of Stansted Airport with the famous racing town of Newmarket being about 10 miles distant. There is an immediate very wealthy and well populated catchment area including the historic City of Cambridge with the University, numerous business parks etc and excellent road linkage to London.

THE BOARDING BUSINESS was started by the current owners approximately 12 years ago and is currently licensed for 68 dogs.  T/o  of £323k for year end 2020 without grooming income.  Two boarding kennels within the area have recently closed (September 2021) which means that demand is greatly outstripping supply - demand for day care is increasing rapidly so this super business offers a real opportunity for a very significant income.
