  •  Spacious Detached Four Bedroom House plus Integral Annexe

  •  Set In Approx. 4.8 Acres

A lovely country property run as a well established kennels and cattery. The present owners have operated Fir Tree Pets Hotel for fourteen years (in 2020) and are now looking to scale down. The property has excellent income potential with a turnover, we understand over the past twelve years, of between £60k and £70k in normal conditions. The accounts for the business are not audited and therefore it is unlikely that a mortgage could be raised on the basis of the accounts although past books for the property will be made available to people who have viewed the property. It might well make a very good secondary income for someone wishing to live in the country and enjoy the property's lovely rural and secluded location.

There may also be scope for other uses of the property subject to necessary planning permissions being obtained.

Whilst being very rural it is only three miles out of the popular village of Wedmore which has an extensive range of local facilities. The nearby cathedral city of Wells also is readily accessible.
