Property Description

INTRODUCTION

Halls Commercial are delighted to offer for sale this reputable, thriving,

residential and day-visit activity centre, located in the heart of the

beautiful countryside of Mid Wales.

The business was established in 1978 by the vendors, providing an

excellent learning environment and is only reluctantly offered for sale

due to the current vendors wishing to retire.

This is an ideal platform for an existing company looking to grow through

acquisition or it has considerable potential as an individual opportunity.

With solid foundations set, this is an exciting turn key operation. Little

investment would be required to add to the existing facilities and

through an active approach to marketing, the new owner could boost

exposure and effectively grow the customer base. Online advertising for

promotional offers, discounts and even a customer loyalty scheme for

large groups would also appeal to a wider audience.

Due to retirement, the current vendor is looking to sell this highly

lucrative business to a motivated buyer.
