The property is currently home to a successful licensed dog day care and home boarding business (currently licenced to board six dogs) which was recently awarded the highest star rating possible under DEFRA’s new star rating system by Central Bedfordshire Council ( 5 Stars) and in the agents opinion there is scope for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary permissions being obtained.
