The Nursery has operated since approximately 1996 and trades predominantly on a seasonal basis owing to the sellers personal circumstances. The opportunity has been placed on the market as our client wishes to retire.
The business does not tend to trade on a year round basis but recently there has been an increase in enquiries for the accommodation element of the business. The close proximity to the A19 and also being within easy driving distance of Sunderland, Durham and a number of busy industrial estates means there is a mix of both commercial and tourist guests. The main house is currently configured to provide 3 letting rooms, one of which is a self contained suite with kitchen, and there is a detached cottage in the grounds which is set up for self catering.
Nursery sales are generated predominantly from the sale of plants grown on site and there is very little sold in the way of gardening products, garden ornaments etc. and we feel that this is something which could be developed significantly. There is enough space to incorporate some traditional garden centre services and viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the location and opportunities available.
