A superb opportunity to acquire a well-established holiday letting and livery business in Llangennith, Gower, Swansea. The 1600's farmstead was previously a derelict sheep and cattle farm and was purchased by its current owners in 1987. Due to the commitment and investment from the owners, Tankey Lake Livery has flourished and developed into three stunning self-catering cottages as well as a cosy owner's farmhouse and a popular livery business.
Tankey Lake Livery is managed by the two current owners and a small handful of cleaning staff that provide the excellent customer service that has resulted in regular referrals and recommendations from guests. The Livery business has an existing licensee who would be prepared to enter into a new arrangement with the purchaser.
The livery yard is accredited by the British Horse Society and was awarded "Highly Commended" across the majority of the inspection areas demonstrating the excellent standard of livery facilities available at the farmstead.
An overview of the opportunity is as follows:
Well established and renowned holiday letting and livery location set in approximately 30 acres of land (stms - subject to measured survey) to include all of the farm machinery as listed.
Four bedroomed modernised farmhouse (owner's accommodation).
Three stunning self-catering cottages with bespoke features as well as owner's accommodation.
Income generated from a BHS approved livery business.
Benefits from reputation and regular referrals.
Potential to develop farming and related activities.
In addition to this, planning permission has also been granted for a sixth barn/indoor dressage arena.
Our clients now wish to sell due to their desire to retire.
These 1 and 2 bedroom cottages operate as the prime business for the owners with a separate livery service rented out to a third party. The livery yard also offers the opportunity for horse riding lessons, equestrian laundry service, horse box hire and grazing for tack sheep.
