Llain Activity and Holiday Centre was established in 1991 when the current owners purchased a 10 acre rundown holiday complex. Over the following years they upgraded, extended and generated the thriving business that you see today. Not running at anything like its full capacity at only 30% they are offering the centre as a going concern (on retirement). The centre closes for the winter at the end of October each year.
There is a website with lots of information about the centre
From Aberaeron take the A487 coast road south, for about 3 miles. Turn off right at the brown sign to Llain Activity Centre. Carry on for a further mile and the centre is then on the right hand side.
There are accounts available for inspection with the owners at time of viewing for Bona fide parties.
Llain offers great opportunity and potential. Permission is already in place for 2 self contained wooden lodges, as well as expanding the glamping and camping business.
Development of a cafe/ restaurant, gallery or retail space, weddings and events are all a possibility. As the only activity centre in the county there is huge scope.
The Thomas family have loved living at Llain and running the business in such beautiful countryside. It would be an ideal place for multi generational living and/or exciting new venture for a couple of families.
