Property description

Business
The Playmill has been operated by the current owner for 2 years and continues to serve the local community and surrounding area which the previous operators did for many years before retiring.

The current owner has rebranded and revamped the old business model to create The Playmill which is a soft play area for children aged 0-8 years old. The business provides a safe and stimulating environment for children to play and develop within secure surroundings having access to the latest equipment while being looked after and stimulated by their mentors.

Facilities include a climbing frame with two bumpy slides, a large sandpit with diggers and toys, sit and ride toys, babies and under 2’s play area.

Two hour party packages are available this includes invitations, 2 hours play, hot and cold food, drink, dessert and a party bag.

The Playmill has the added benefit of a cafe providing a range of tasty hot meals and drinks for both the children and parents. The cafe also has the benefit of being able to provide food for the other businesses using within the Mill and is a lucrative income stream which could easily be expanded much further; extending the opening hours as well as opening at weekends.

The business is growing on an upwards trajectory and due to the current owner relocating offers a rare and exciting opportunity for a new operator to take The Playmill to the next level.
