Set in the delightful and impressive 12.5 acre grounds of the esteemed Babbington Hall, this high quality business and property enjoys the best of locations, comprising mainly of post and rail paddocks plus 2 acres of bluebell woodland, all overlooking open countryside within a conservation area.
The historical Babbington Hall was built in the 1750’s and provides superb accommodation with a high quality, extensive 4 bedroom main dwelling and adjoining two storey cottage annexe, both of which have been refurbished to an excellent standard, whilst the surrounding areas provide excellent kennels, cattery and equestrian facilities. The property lies close to the towns of Kimberley and Ilkeston between Nottingham and Derby, and has excellent links via the adjacent M1. This gives the business an extremely wide catchment area, with people coming from far afield to take advantage of the facilities on offer.
The business has expanded considerably in recent years, and is now registered for 137 dogs and 18 cats, with the kennels side of the business being split between boarders and rescue dogs, both of which are kept in separate kennel blocks, all of the highest standard. The kennel accommodation is suitable for all sizes and numbers of dogs including quiet areas for nervous animals with special kennels for working and guard dogs.
Turnover has been rising consistently in recent years and is currently in excess of £430,000 per annum, producing good profits for the owners. There is still tremendous scope for further development of the business on the internet, plus the development of the extensive equestrian facilities, which are yet to be developed as a business. The American Barn, stables, manège and surrounding paddocks provide an ideal setting for a thriving equestrian centre and would undoubtedly be a popular addition to the facilities on offer.
