Description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established and reputable butchers/farm shop in this lovely unspoilt location with ample easy parking.

The business has been run by the current owners for 20 years and he is now looking towards a well-earned retirement.

They offer a range of produce including Beckley pork, Boarstall lamb and beef, as well as a range of homemade sausages, faggots, pies and bacon. Alongside this they also offer a selection of local seasonal vegetables and limited groceries.

The shop is presently run on a 4 day a week basis, due to the owners impending retirement. However, it has tremendous potential to be opened longer hours and taken to the next level. The business could also look at farmer’s markets, food shows and massive catering potential with its proximity to Oxford.

The owners presently do carry out some outside catering with pig roasts and bbq’s which are not included in the turnover mentioned and which bring in a useful further income. You could also look at further advertising and promotion with social media and local advertising together with improving the website and moving things to the next level. The current website can be found at

The owner would also consider selling the freehold offering if the right buyer was found, which also includes a small paddock and animal shelters. We believe from the owners that there is also further development potential on the site subject to gaining the necessary planning permissions.

An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the position and potential on offer.

Location
Mr Finn Ltd is situated in a fantastic unspoilt rural location in this very sought-after area of Horton-cum-Studley and we believe from the vendors that the shop is only 5 miles from the centre of Oxford so has a great catchment area.

Oxford is a city in the South East region of England and the county town of Oxfordshire. With an estimated 2016 population of 170,350 people, it is the 52nd largest city in the UK and one of the fastest growing and most ethnically diverse, with the unique advantage of having one of the best-known universities in the world.

Oxford is easy and fast to reach from London and Birmingham, as well as the major airports in the area, with regular direct connections. Frequent coaches depart 24 hours a day from London Victoria. Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham airports can be reached by regular direct buses in approximately 90 minutes, and Birmingham International is served by fast trains, making Oxford easily accessible from all areas.

The business has been run by the current owners for 20 years and he is now looking towards a well-earned retirement.

Premises
The premises are set within a good-sized detached unit which offers a large shop area, store room/office and WC. There is also a further smaller detached building where the seasonal vegetables are displayed. The site offers ample gravelled parking and we believe from the vendor that fibre optic is in the nearby road if required.

The shop comes with an extensive range of equipment to include:

8 metres of chilled display cabinets with servery over
3 metre freezer display cabinet
Portable flatbed chiller
2 butcher blocks
Mincer
Various scales including printer scale

Turbo vac packer
