This is a rare opportunity to acquire an established and highly regarded licensed boarding kennels/cattery and dog crèche, which is located in the popular village of Middleton St George in Darlington, County Durham.

Aeolian House Boarding Kennels and Cattery occupies a prominent yet peaceful setting, set back from the main road (A67) commuter route and is approached via a private gated driveway. The business is set within extensive grounds, whilst being surrounded by open countryside. Despite occupying such an idyllic setting, the business is only a short drive from Darlington with Stockton on Tees and the A1(M) also close at hand.

Aeolian House Boarding Kennels and Cattery is therefore conveniently placed for pet owners from the locality, as well as from neighbouring towns and villages and subsequently attracts regular, repeat and also new custom from throughout the County Durham area.

We understand that a number of new residential developments are also planned within the vicinity, which will also increase the target audience and catchment area of the business.

Having been established by the present owners back in 2002, this well known business has acquired a truly enviable reputation and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base, enjoying frequent referrals and recommendations.

Aeolian House Boarding Kennels and Cattery is successful due to its good name and there is a fantastic opportunity for purchasers to continue to build and develop the business further.

Opportunities for growth include re-establishing the grooming, either internally or sub-letting to a third party, introducing a dog training/agility classes, the potential to build a hydro pool and establish an on-site retail shop selling a range of food and accessories.

The business has also been approved and operated in the past as a pet crematorium, however this was ceased by the vendors a number of years ago, but could be reintroduced should a new owner wish to do so. All or any of these enhancements will naturally increase the already impressive turnover, whilst ultimately enhancing the overall profitability of the business.

Aeolian House Boarding Kennels and Cattery is a lucrative business, which would prove to be an excellent acquisition for a family who are seeking a fantastic lifestyle opportunity.

To fully appreciate this first class opportunity, a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
