Property

Freehold

Who’s it good for?

Someone looking for an easy to run lifestyle business. Someone looking for a change in career. Someone who has worked in hotels, bed and breakfasts or holiday homes before.

The industry

There were a record number of trips to the UK last year. A whopping 37.6 million visits were made by overseas residents in 2016, a 4 per cent increase on the previous year – the most frequent reason being holidays.

The number of Brits choosing to stay closer to home for their holidays has also increased over the last couple of years. A recent survey by Barclays showed that 54 per cent of UK holidaymakers opt to stay in the UK and 37 per cent prefer rural locations for their getaways.

The business

Established in 2002, this impressive property is a 350-year-old country mill conversion set in rural Lancashire. Surrounded by the beautiful forest of Bowland, the business is located under ten miles from the market town of Clitheroe and is easy to reach from both the M6 and Manchester airport.

The Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and Fydle Coast are also within easy reach. The business is already successful and is run remotely by the owners who reside offsite – however there is the option for new owners to live onsite. There is a substantial client list that new owners can make use of and the business has excellent online reviews.

The business includes nine characterful self-contained luxury holiday apartments – one of which could be used as owner’s accommodation if required. The property also has a lakeside guest lounge and additional communal dining facilities.

Due to a recent comprehensive renovation, the property is in excellent shape and it can be hired for group bookings, activity breaks, business meetings and long lets. The business also holds a wedding licence.

The property also boasts its very own lake, brook and woodlands as well as an ample car park for guests and maintained gardens.

There is plenty of potential for new owners to further develop this business and generate more profits. There is also plenty of scope to develop the wedding business and group accommodation side of the business and make use of the grounds by installing glamping bell tents or yurts and facilities such as hot tubs.

After running the business for 14 years, the current owners are approaching retirement and feel that it is the right time to consider the sale of the business.

Unique pet hotel for sale

North Lanarkshire

Asking price

£325,000

Turnover

Available on request

Property

Freehold

Who’s it good for?

Animal lovers. Someone looking for a change of career. Someone who like the outdoors.

The industry

According to TotallyMoney.com’s latest survey, there are an estimated 13 million pet owners in the UK (46 per cent of the population). Brits spent a record-breaking £7.16 billion on their animals last year, showing a growth of 25 per cent since 2010. Some 95 per cent of dog owners consider their pets to be a family member, and 51 per cent of dog owners would spend more on their pet’s wellbeing that their own.

And after telling cat owners that their cat would cost them the same amount of money as a deposit on a house over its lifetime, 88 per cent state that they would rather have a cat.

The business

This business includes an impressive three-bedroom, two-storey building with a living room, two bathrooms, and large kitchen diner. There is also a sizeable office and kitchen space on the lower level.

There are also two large kennel blocks capable of housing over 70 dogs and a separate cattery block capable of housing 30 cats – set away from the kennels to minimise stress for the cats.

On top of the two large blocks, there is also a separate small animal boarding area and a grooming room.

The current owners have diversified their business, offering add on services such as pet grooming, and by selling food and accessories.

Set in approximately two acres of land, the business is located within a short commute from major towns and cities: Cumbernauld, Coatbridge, Airdrie, Stirling, Falkirk, Glasgow and Edinburgh – and is easily accessible for over million people.

With a genuine reason for the sale, the business is on the market due to the owner’s poor health.

The business is not currently operating, but when it was it boasted an exceptional reputation and was run at full capacity. Based on an occupancy rate of 30 per cent and at the current prices, the business would generate an impressive turnover of £140,000 a year. However, the business could achieve much more – so there is plenty of scope for expansion.

The current owners are happy to share their records with the new owners to help them reach out to customers and advertise the reopening of the business.

Quirky café near the Brighton Lanes

Location

Brighton, East Sussex

Asking price

£59,995

Turnover

£98,000

Property

Leasehold

Who’s it good for?

Someone who is interested in health and wellbeing, has a good knowledge of a plant-based diet or doesn’t mind learning about it, with good hospitality and customer service skills, and looking to relocate to the coast.

The industry

The performance of the industry depends largely on economic and social factors such as growth in disposable income. Greater interest in tea and coffee blends and origins and a growing preference for cafes and coffee shops over other social venues.

The café and coffee shop industries remain resilient in difficult economic conditions and IBISWorld expects the industry revenue to grow at a compound annual rate of 5.7 per cent to reach £6.2 billion by 2018.

Relatively low barriers to entry also mean that there has been a resurgence of independent cafes.

According to the Vegan Society, adopting a plant-based diet is one of ‘Britain’s fastest-growing lifestyle movements’. The number of people choosing this lifestyle has risen by 360 per cent in the last decade. Last year, records showed that some 542,000 people over the age of 15 have changed to a plant-based diet, representing over 1 per cent of the population in the UK.

The business

This established plant-based café is situated in the heart of Brighton. Only a two-minute walk from the famous Brighton Lanes, close to the train station, university buildings, and The Level, it has a high footfall of working professionals, students, and locals.

Previously a coffee shop and café that was trading for three years, the owner took it over to start a plant-based cafe with a focus on healthy living and wellbeing.

The café specialises in breakfasts, brunches, and lunches that are made from high-quality local ingredients from local suppliers.

The café is on target to reach a turnover of £98,000 in its first year of trading and has produced a net profit of £28,000.

The business is leasehold, with 4.3 years of a renewable five-year lease plan remaining. The rent comes to £11,000 per annum and there are no rates to pay.

Deliveroo is used for home deliveries, which has grown organically without any promotion, bringing in revenue of £10,000.

The website is currently under construction but they have an excellent social media presence (1,000 followers on Facebook, 2000 plus on Instagram) and excellent reviews on Google, Facebook, and Happy Cow.

Recently nominated for ‘Best Breakfast in Brighton’ for Brighton and Hove Food awards for 2017 the business has built up a strong and growing client base.

Operated by the owner and 5 part-time staff, the business is currently open from 9-5 most days but could stay open longer to cater to an evening crowd. It is also shut on Tuesdays, so there is scope for new owners to increase the trading hours.

The owner is selling to focus on other business interests and travel, however, they can help with a handover period if required.

Dog grooming business for sale

Keynsham, Bristol, Somerset

Asking price

£69,950 (Furniture and fixtures included)

Turnover

Available on request

Property

Leasehold

Who’s it good for?

Animal lovers

Someone with retail experience or experience in the hair and beauty trade. Someone looking for a change of career

The industry

The latest figures show that Brits spend a whopping £7.6 billion on their pets, so its safe to say the pet pampering industry is a great investment.

Research even shows that 95 per cent of dog owners consider their four-legged friends as part of the family.

This would explain why dog grooming is such big business in the UK – as discerning owners want to give their dogs the same kind of hair and skin treatments we (humans) enjoy.

The business

Retail shop and grooming parlour, Bob the Dog Shop, has been trading since August 2016 but is now being offered up for sale due to retirement.

In a relatively short timeframe, the business has firmly established itself, gaining a large customer base, an excellent reputation, and an impressive online presence.

Located in Keynsham, a town located between Bristol and Bath, the area has good connections, with the A4 and other main A roads close by.

Situated on a busy parade of shops on the high street, the business occupies two units on the ground floor of a three-storey building.

The business is well presented and decorated to an exceptionally high standard – and it’s certainly hard to miss with its bold branding.

One unit is used for the shop, which sells a wide range of canine products such as dog treats, leads, beds, and bowls and owner accessories.

The second unit is used for the dog grooming side of the business and includes professional, high-quality equipment such as a hydraulic grooming bath, three grooming tables, dryers and UV sterilisers.

The shop is currently operated with four qualified groomers, two full-time and two part-time who groom on average 35 dogs a week.

Opening hours are currently Monday to Friday 9:00 to 17:00 and Saturday 9:00 to 16:00, so there is further scope to expand and open on Sundays.

This is a great opportunity to take on a well-presented business with a fast-growing client base of over 300 customers.

Three outdoors shops in the Peak District for sale

£124,950 (fixtures and fittings included)

Turnover

Available on request

Property

Leasehold

Who’s it good for?

Outdoor types. People who like sports and outdoor pursuits. Someone looking for a lifestyle business in the Peak District.

The industry

The demand for high-quality activewear has increased as more people try to lead active lifestyles and focus on healthy living. Fuelled by the current economy and political instability caused by Brexit, the increase in staycations and camping holidays has given the market a significant boost.

Also bolstered by the fashion industry, demand has been driven by urban lifestyle brands who promote outdoor activities like hiking and climbing on their websites and social media pages. And the growing popularity of music festivals has also increased demand in the value end of the outdoor sector.

According to Pragma’s Market Snapshot of the UK Outdoor Retail Sector, statistics show that when it rains, not only does it pour, but it also increases sales. So, what could be a better business to run in the UK?

The business

Outdoor pursuits business Track & Trail was established in 1992 and currently trades from a total of three shops across the Peak District (Ashbourne, Buxton and Bakewell) as well as online.

Between them, the stores have retail trading areas of between 550 and 750 square feet, with stockrooms and additional admin areas. The Buxton store has the largest space and acts as the regional storeroom.

Stocking an array of the best outdoors brands, clothing, footwear and equipment, the shops are strategically located in or around the Peak Park in central town locations.

The businesses benefit from the 22 million tourists who flock to the area each year for the beautiful scenery and to walk, camp, climb, cycle, fish and sail.

Over the 25 years in which the shop has been trading it has built up an excellent reputation for both quality and service.

The business has been run by the same owner, who is now looking to retire, however, the director is willing to stay on to ensure a smooth transition and to help with training and general assistance.

There is plenty of scope for the new owner to further develop and expand the business. With added potential to expand the online side of the business, develop an own brand and develop school links for Duke of Edinburgh.

The business

This beautiful detached stone built pub, restaurant and accommodation is in the beautiful and historic village of Limekilns on the northern shores of the Forth.

The village is situated approximately 2.5 miles south of Dunfermline town centre and is easily accessible from the main motorway meaning that Edinburgh is just half an hour away.

The pub and restaurant are located on the ground floor while the owner’s accommodation is spread across the ground, first and second floors.

Aside from the perfect waterfront location, this is one of the most attractive aspects of this sale. The private owner’s accommodation that accompanies the business is of an excellent quality and sizeable enough to accommodate a family.

Offering excellent home cooked meals and a warm, relaxing atmosphere, this traditional village pub attracts both holidaymakers and locals and with its 4.5 stars on Google and 5 stars on TripAdvisor you can certainly see why.

This could be the perfect opportunity to purchase a successful and well-regarded business – could it be for you?

Boat trips and hire business in Skipton for sale

Skipton, North Yorkshire

Asking price

£480,000 (furniture and fixtures included)

Turnover

£230,000

Property

Leasehold

Who’s it good for?

Someone looking for a fun lifestyle business. Someone looking for a business with potential for expansion. Someone who loves boats, water sports or being out on the water.

The industry

Boating tourism (including inland boat hire, coastal charter, sailing, water sports tuition, marinas, moorings and passenger boat trips) accounts for approximately 20 per cent of UK marine industry revenue, according to British Marine.

Research in collaboration with Visit Britain in 2015 also showed that approximately 5 million domestic holidays taken in the UK involved boating activity, in turn contributing over £1.7 billion to the economy.

The business

Skipton, the traditional, North Yorkshire market town, is surrounded by beautiful countryside with the Leeds/Liverpool Canal running through it.

It was also voted ‘The Best Place to Live in Britain’ in 2014 and crowned the winner of the 2009 ‘Great High-street of the Year’ award.

The town is full of independent shops and unique small businesses, just one of them being this boat hire business, that is conveniently located at the heart of the Skipton Canal Basin.

The area is also home to numerous tourist attractions such as the Carlisle Railway, Skipton Open Air Market, the 900-year-old Skipton Castle and the famous Skipton Waterway Festival.

Included in the sale price is four boats, including two wide beam trip boats which are larger than the standard narrow boat with room for 50-56 people. These larger boats have on board galleys, a bar, toilets and central heating. The other two boats are the more traditional narrow boats, which are hired out on a day-to-day basis.

There is a booking office on the quayside that deals with all bookings. This office is fitted with a kitchen which is used for catering for the boats. The business also has secure leases with the Canal And River Trust.

With an impressive 4-star accolade on trip advisor and 4.6 on Google, this successful business has built up a good reputation through its chartered trips, day boat hire, guided tours and special cruises.

With a genuine reason for the sale, the current owners are looking to retire. There is plenty of scope for further development as the current owners have run it as a lifestyle business on a seasonal basis.

The business hours can be flexible to suit the new owner’s requirements, however, there is also the possibility for new owners to extend the opening hours and operate out of season to increase profits.

Beachfront apartments, surf school and café for sale

Take a look at this attractive hospitality offering based in one of the top tourist destinations in Britain.

Location

Torpoint, Cornwall

Asking price

£1,250,000

Sales revenue

£100,000

Property

Freehold

Who’s it good for?

The business would benefit from someone who is hands-on and looking to run a lucrative and exciting business.

Alternatively, it could also suit someone looking to enjoy a more relaxing and quiet lifestyle. Also known as ‘The Forgotten Corner of Cornwall’ the beach is frequently empty outside the busy summer period, bar a couple of dog walkers and dedicated surfers.

The industry

Cornwall has consistently been voted as one of the top tourist destinations in Britain. Attracting approximately 4.3 million staying visitors and 14.7 million day visitors, tourism generated £2.6 billion of business turnover and supported 53,000 jobs in 2014.

According to Visit Cornwall, 40 per cent of all staying guests were staying in self-catering accommodation and the most popular activities undertaken by visitors were eating and drinking, shopping and going for short walks.

Surfing has evolved over the years, becoming a multi-million-pound industry according to Surfers Against Sewage, who suggest that the indirect economic impact of surfing in the UK may be as much as £4.95 billion.

The business

Located in North East Cornwall, this unique business is positioned at the base of Tregonhawke cliff on the beach.

It is a lifestyle business that includes beautiful beachfront apartments, a substantial 3 bedroomed owner’s residence, a surf school and a seasonal café.

Originally established in 1956, the café business was taken over by the current owner in 2005, who opened a holiday lets business and a surf shop and school.

The holiday apartments are currently split into one, two and three-bedroom residences, with the smaller apartments let for most of the year as self-catering apartments.

Currently, the café is only open for ten weeks of the year (not including the occasional sunny weekend in the colder months), so its annual turnover of £25,000 has not been fully exploited and could benefit from extended opening.

With its reputation as one of the best surf beaches on the South Coast, and it’s 5 miles of golden sands, the area itself attracts holidaymakers from all over the UK, as well as overseas. The growing demand of holiday lets in the area has grown massively, and the competitive price at which the owner lets the properties could be increased by the new owners.

Bookings are currently managed by both an agency and the current owner and occupancy rates for the apartments are high. They are ever increasing due to repeat customers and recommendations.

The surf school is a concession that is open throughout the year, however, it is particularly busy in the summer months and generates a lot of custom for the café and apartments. The school itself is a sublet and the owner pays a percentage of his profits to the owners.

The current owner is looking to sell the business to focus on other priorities. Could this be the right business for you?

Who’s it good for?

A vegan, vegetarian or someone who has knowledge of a plant-based diet. Someone with good customer service skills; someone looking to relocate to the seaside.

The industry

Veganism is now one of ‘Britain’s fastest-growing lifestyle movements’ according to the Vegan Society and the number of vegans in the UK has risen by 360 per cent in the last ten years.
Last year, records showed that some 542, 000 people over the age of 15 have adopted a plant-based diet. A number representing over 1 per cent of the UK population and has risen from 150,000 in 2006.

Couple that with the fact that the restaurant sector is booming and you’re on to a winner. The restaurant sector has recovered well from the economic turmoil of the past 9 years and Brits are spending more than ever on eating out at the UK’s 56,000 plus restaurants.

Despite consumers tightening their belts when it comes to grocery and goods shopping, it appears they are increasingly willing to spend more on eating out with an average spend that’s £580 more per household than six years ago.

The business

With its popular central location in Westbourne, approximately 1 ¼ miles from Bournemouth and five miles from Poole, this well-presented recently refurbished vegan restaurant is a great opportunity for any business buyer.

Fully-equipped and fitted throughout, the restaurant has space for 40 covers, a private dining area, kitchen, wash up room external seating area and garden. The sale also includes the owner’s two-bedroom self-contained accommodation above the restaurant.

Specialising in organic, locally sourced, raw and plant-based foods inspired by a trip to Bali, the restaurant has built up an excellent reputation with 4 and a half stars on Google and Tripadvisor – the reviews focusing on the relaxing atmosphere, creative design and wholesome food.

The restaurant has been established for approximately eight years and is currently operated by the owners.

The restaurant is open five days and five evenings a week and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so there is scope for new owners to expand on these trading hours.

Who’s it good for?

A people person with a passion for Italian food. Someone with great communication skills and customer service. A good multitasker and problem solver.

The industry

The restaurant sector is booming and the eating out market is worth over £40 billion. Statistics show that British consumers are choosing to dine at independent restaurants more than ever before.

According to Savills’ report Casual Dining in the UK 2016, Italian remained the most numerous and popular of all casual dining cuisines, accounting for 45 per cent of all branded restaurants.

The business

This family-run Italian restaurant is situated in the heart of affluent Richmond. Established for five years, the owners are having to give the business up due to personal circumstances.

Nestled away on a picturesque pedestrianised street just off Richmond’s main shopping area, the restaurant is housed within a characterful three storey grade II listed building that’s approximately 400 years old.

Within proximity to Richmond Theatre and Richmond Green, Paved Court is a lovely community orientated area where almost all of the businesses are independently owned.

The business has an A3 food and alcohol licence allowing the restaurant to serve alcohol until midnight and food until 2 am – there is also scope to offer a takeaway service.

Tastefully decorated with neutral colours and feature wallpaper, the building has retained a lot of its charm.

Due to the building’s status as a listed building, expansion potential is limited, however, there are currently 40 covers spread over two floors and outside seating which is a sufficient number for the area. There is also a stock room on the top floor and a and a guest bathroom.

The restaurants trading hours are currently between 11 am and 10 pm Tuesday to Sunday, so there is further potential for the new owners to open the restaurant 7 days a week and open earlier to cater on weekends for breakfast and brunch.

With a reasonable rent of £22,000 per annum negotiable remaining lease of 9 years, this business is a rare opportunity for someone who has the time and the enthusiasm to invest in the restaurant sector.

The current owner says ‘my partner and I haven’t reached the full potential of the restaurant due to very difficult personal circumstances’ adding ‘for the right person, the sky is the limit.’
They are also happy to offer their advice and experience to the new owners.

Leeds, West Yorkshire

Asking price

£39,950

Turnover

£83,000

Net profit

£21,000

Property

Leasehold

Who’s it good for?

Someone who’s enthusiastic about the industry and who doesn’t mind getting up early to go to the flower market (trading hours are usually between 4 am and 10 am). Someone with a creative mind and a good eye for detail, who also doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty.

Someone willing to work weekends and special occasions – say goodbye to a day off on Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day!

You’ll have to be a people person to be a florist and empathy is key – your customers will likely include excited brides/grooms, grieving family members or nervous first dates.

The industry

Flowers play an important role in many of the key events in our lives, from births to marriages and romances to apologies and deaths.

But they are no longer just for special occasions. The UK’s cut flower and indoor plant market is now worth approximately £2.2 billion, representing an average spend per person, per year of £36. Elton John once spent a whopping £34,000 in a month!

The business

Are you looking for a business that’s cheerful, creative and smells amazing? Or a business with demand all year round?

This modern independent florist is situated in a popular suburb of Leeds, West Yorkshire. Priding itself on its visually stunning arrangements, seasonal and handmade products and excellent customer service, this shop boasts a loyal customer base and a strong turnover.

Established in 2007, the business has demonstrated year-on-year growth and an impressive annual turnover of £75,000.

Beautifully decorated and fully equipped, the business is ready to occupy immediately with no further work required.

With a number of corporate clients, this florist works with businesses by furnishing offices and providing plants and flowers for events and communal spaces.

However, there is plenty of room for expansion and increased revenue by expanding the product offering into gifts, homewares and add-on products such as candles, jewellery and cards. The new owners could also branch out into supplying weddings.

Currently, the business only advertises on Facebook, so, there is plenty of scope for greater promotion to attract more customers through other social media outlets and local blogs.

The new owners could also look into setting up an online store and supplying a delivery service in the local area.

People are never going to stop being born, getting married or having birthdays, so buying a florist is a pretty failsafe option. And this is a truly unique opportunity for an enthusiastic new buyer to purchase a profitable florist business and grow it further.
