Description

The Boodee Beg Boarding Cattery is a well-established business with a license for 56 cats. The business has been trading since 2006 and is situated in semi-rural area of Isle of Man and set in approximately one-acre of very secluded land. The sale includes the freehold to a secluded and fully architecturally remodelled home with beautiful sea, mountain, and surrounding countryside views. 

Overview of the business opportunity

  • A good and consistent annual income is generated with excellent profit margins.
  • The grounds extend to approximately one-acre part of which discreetly houses the cattery business which is screened from the main residence by a mature hedge.
  • The cattery has its own private entrance and welcome facility so the home and business are nicely segregated
  • The cattery itself is in excellent order and sits on a large private plot and is easily capable of accommodating additional chalets

The business & the lifestyle

This business offers a unique opportunity to take a step back and enjoy the benefits of a unique environment and an excellent quality of life as well as providing the benefit of good source of income from an established cattery brand. As such the cattery would ideally suit a family looking for a lifestyle business - whether that is a family already in the Isle of Man or those seeking to re-locate to take advantage of the Islands natural beauty and slower pace of life (and, of course, its current Covid-19 free status).

We appreciate that for those currently in the UK (or elsewhere) travel at this time may add additional complications and so a full picture book of the house and grounds and a video tour of the house and cattery operation is available so you can better appreciate the environment and lifestyle on offer before you decide to book a viewing or consider travelling to the Isle of Man.

The Cattery business  

The business has an enviable reputation with neatly presented well maintained facilities which are capable of being considerably expanded if required. The very private and spacious detached family home consists of four good sized bedrooms (two en-suite) and a fifth bedroom which is currently used as a home office. The lifestyle on offer here is an integral part of the business opportunity.

The cattery itself has one of the finest reputations on the island and is built to, and in most cases, exceeds the high standards of international cat care. The business has been in operation as a commercial cattery since 2006 and operates within guidelines to ensure that feline health and welfare is paramount with emphasis on cat care and comfort.

The cattery currently caters purely for cats ensuring throughout that boarders reside in a calm and peaceful environment with no disturbance or potential distress from barking dogs. This business has been included in the IOM Best Business Guide for the last 12 years.

This cattery operates from the private grounds of a stunning and deceptively spacious four to five bedroom detached property with gardens and grounds extending to approximately one acre and is popular with many locals to the area. Currently the fifth bedroom of the house is set up for home working which also makes this opportunity suitable for those looking to remote work as part of the lifestyle package on offer. The business attracts customers from not only the local area and surrounding villages but also further afield on the Island. The business is an extremely well known and well-respected cattery brand which has been trading for 14 years now. As such it benefits from a large database of loyal clients who use the business on a regular basis.
