Set in approximately 3 ½ acres this Kennels & Cattery business also has large residential accommodation (2 x 4 bedrooms) which is currently set up as 2 adjoining properties however we feel there could be potential for alternative use across different parts of the site. There are 40 dog kennels and 5 cat chalets but again certainly potential and space to increase this further if required.



Alresford is a small village located in North East Essex in the District of Tendring. The closest major town is Colchester which is located approximately 6 miles away.


Accessible from the A12 and A133 there is also a train line connecting to Colchester which provides a service through to London Liverpool Street.


The business is located on the B1027 (Colchester Main Road) and visible to passing traffic with signage on the roadside.



The owners currently live with their family in the residential properties located within the same site as the business. The property was adapted and extended a number of years ago to suit the owners requirements and could continue to operate on the same basis or be adapted further. There are currently 2 x 4 bedroom properties that are interconnected but also can easily operate separately. There may also be potential for a change of use such as a care facility or children’s nursery etc.



The current owners bought the business approximately 15 years ago and have grown and added to the facilities during their ownership. The business now has 40 dog kennels and 5 cat chalets although there as a number of them that can house more than one pet at a time. There is also 1 isolation unit for the dogs.


Customers enter the business premises to the front of the site (separate to the access for the owners accommodation) and can park in the car park. There is a small office for customers which also leads through to the pet grooming area which then leads out to the kennels and chalets.




The property is not liable for Business Rates. The properties are liable for Council Tax and are listed as Band A & F. Please see the Valuation Office Agency website at for more information.
