This is a rare opportunity to acquire a well established and highly regarded luxury licensed boarding cattery, located in the small semi-rural village of Whiston which lies between Sheffield and Rotherham in South Yorkshire.

A1 Cats Country Hotel occupies a peaceful setting approached via a private electric gated driveway, nestling amongst open countryside with delightful uninterrupted views.

Despite occupying such an idyllic setting, the business is located close to junction 33 of the (M1) motorway within easy reach of a selection of local shops and amenities with the major commuter routes close at hand.

A1 Cats Country Hotel is therefore conveniently placed for the immediate locality, as well as neighbouring towns and villages and subsequently attracts regular repeat and also new custom from throughout South Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.

Having been successfully operated by the present owner for the last 25 years, this well known business has acquired a truly enviable reputation as one of the leading boarding establishments in the area and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base, enjoying frequent referrals and recommendations.

A1 Cats Country Hotel 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 potentially introduce additional boarding facilities subject to the relevant planning permission from the local authority.

A1 Cats Country Hotel is a thriving and lucrative business, which represents a terrific investment for an ambitious family who are seeking the ultimate lifestyle opportunity.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a fantastic business and a beautiful home which is located within such a peaceful semi-rural setting. Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
