Briercliffe Lodge is now under new ownership thanks to Redwoods Dowling Kerr

This well-respected residential care home in Barnoldswick, Lancashire, has now been sold.

Briercliffe Lodge was established by our vendors, Rebecca and Gillian, over 3 decades ago in 1988.

Since that time, Briercliffe Lodge has consolidated an exceptional reputation, earning a substantial amount of its client base through regular referrals and recommendations, benefitting greatly from the expert ownership and direction of the vendors.

This substantial stone property has undergone considerable and extensive renovation and regeneration projects over the years, and the home has enjoyed historically high occupancy levels, always operating at or approaching capacity.

The complement of experienced and highly qualified staff in place at the setting is a key factor in the good reputation of this fantastic home, earning a ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Inspectorate in their most recent inspection in January 2019.

Rebecca and Gillian ultimately decided it was time to enjoy their retirement and felt they had achieved everything they had set out to, entrusting Redwoods Dowling Kerr with handling the sale of their business.

Once introduced to the market, the business generated a substantial amount of interest and after 14 viewings and 2 offers, a sale was agreed to a first-time buyer.

With a background in the NHS, the successful buyer was greatly impressed by the longstanding reputation of the business, and expressed their commitment to running the care home to the same high standards set by Rebecca and Gillian over the years.

The Buyer commented;

“This was my first experience with RDK and although the purchase process for a care home was extremely lengthy, I always felt I was in good hands.”

“Sam was my contact and he was excellent all the way through. He was clearly experienced and knowledgeable, very professional and always accessible for queries along the way.”

“He was very resourceful from the outset in recommending solicitors and CQC advisors which helped me enormously in taking a lot of the administrative burden off me.”

“I also think his polite but firm hand in dealing with all the stakeholders really did help expedite the exchange date significantly.”

“I would be happy to recommend RDK to others and happy to use RDK again”

Lead Negotiator Sam Fazackerly commented;

“I’m pleased to announce the sale of Briercliffe Lodge to first time buyer, Mr Rahman.”

“He has purchased a reputable business with outstanding relationships with both the local authority and social services.”

“Mr Rahman will initially be working closely with the vendors, to ensure a seamless transition for the residents and the staff.”

“I am confident that vendors will be leaving their home in good hands and hope they enjoy their semi-retirement.”
