Description This is a rare opportunity to acquire a well known and highly regarded luxury licensed cattery, which is situated in the district of Whitworth, nestling at the foot of the Pennines in Lancashire.
Valley Cats occupies a peaceful elevated semi-rural setting, approached via a quiet lane at the heart of the Rossendale Valley, between Rochdale and Burnley with lovely views. Despite such an idyllic setting, the business is located just off the main (A671) commuter route and is conveniently sited for the immediate locality, as well as neighbouring towns and villages, attracting regular repeat and also new custom from throughout the Lancashire area.
Having been in present ownership since 2007, this well known business has acquired a truly enviable reputation as the leading boarding establishment in the area and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base, enjoying frequent referrals and recommendations.
Valley Cats is successful due to its good name and there is a genuine opportunity for purchasers to continue to build and develop the business from the existing customer base, with the opportunity to introduce additional cattery facilities as well as accommodating smaller animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, birds etc.
Valley Cats is a first class business which represents an excellent investment for an ambitious family who are seeking a fantastic lifestyle opportunity.
