Hiskeys Farm Kennels in Spratts Lane, Little Bromley is a unique purchase proposition and this bustling boarding home for dogs and cats offers potential to seamlessly continue the business operations (with acquisition of the business by negotiation) whilst offering further potential for a small holding and/or equestrian use.

Fully licensed by Tendring District Council and lovingly run by the soon to retire owner occupiers since 1998 this business has built up a loyal customer base over the years which includes contracts from Tendring District and Colchester Borough Councils for strays and other dog rescue organisations providing consistent and regular base turnover.

Facilities are expansive and comprehensive. The Main Kennel measures approximately 100ft by 35ft and comprises of 26 Kennels (10 double and 12 single pens) with exterior runs, a further 4 internal pens, a store area, Kitchenette, grooming room, laundry room, wash and shower room and larger machinery/barn storage area to the rear.

A second Kennel (top Kennel) measures approximately 44ft x 28ft and lies the other side of the large enclosed exercise and outside space attached to the main Kennel. This top Kennel, with two of its own enclosed exercise areas, has 20 pens.

Separate from the above mentioned facilities is an isolation block which is oil heated, has a Kitchenette, decent sized store room/tool room and two isolation pens.

The Cattery to the front of the plot offers 9 comfortable double pens and an honourable mention goes to the 'Small Furries' House that provides safe and sheltered accommodation for our smaller animal friends such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

As you enter the property's grounds from the road side you are greeted with a long shingled drive with plenty of parking that leads to the office and reception area in front of the main Kennel.

You'll find the formal garden that surrounds the 1890's cottage to be well established, pretty and mature.

The cottage itself which is fully double glazed and oil heated was modestly extended in 1999 and now consists of three double bedrooms, large utility room, modern fitted Kitchen, dining and living rooms, shower room and separate bathroom and a conservatory. The property itself has been well maintained and, from the first floor, views over the sweeping plot and rolling countryside are captivating and far reaching.

Most of the residential and commercial buildings are found within the first two acres with the remainder of the plot being divided into paddocks and grazing areas by post and stock fencing. There is independent access to these fields from the road.
