2020 - A VERY BIG YEAR FOR KENNEL SALES
We are delighted to announce that 2020 marks the 35th year of trading for Kennel Sales. Peter Reed started the business on 11th February 1985, moving to our current home of Ladybird Kennels & Cattery in 1997, and has experienced the various peaks and troughs of the property market in the intervening years, alongside expanding and modernising the boarding kennels and cattery. As we now approach a period of more political stability we hope to see more steadiness and confidence in the market resulting in more transactions.
Final Sale of 2019
The last sale of the year was Mayfield Kennels & Cattery in Fife, amid beautiful Scottish countryside. The new owners have moved from overseas so are looking forward to enjoying a new and exciting lifestyle in entirely different surroundings. We wish them all the best!
In April we were delighted to complete the sale on Sibthorpe Boarding Kennels in rural Nottinghamshire. The business offers plenty of potential for expansion and the new owners are thrilled to be settling in and making plans for the future.
May saw our latest sale go through - Woofers Paradise, a long established boarding business in rural Wales. The vendor is looking forward to a well deserved retirement and the new owner is excited to take the business forward into a bright future.
No April Fools Here!
We were delighted to put together the sale of this beautiful, 200 year old property in April 2019. The new owners are keen to put their own stamp on this large and thriving business and are looking forward to a long and busy summer.
Sunny August Sale!
During the scorching weather of August, we were pleased to complete the sale on Cats Whiskers Boarding Cattery, a thriving business in Herefordshire. The new owners are delighted to start their new lives in the countryside under such sunny skies.
Our vendor was delighted that, after only a short time on the market, we tied up the sale of her property, Morningside Kennelsin Lancashire. She is thrilled to be moving on to fresh adventures and our purchaser is excited to be taking over the business and making her own mark on it. We wish them both well for the future.
Two Exchanges in One Day!
We were delighted to receive news that two of our ongoing sales exchanged contracts on the same day. The owners of Coedely Boarding Kennels, a long established boarding kennels in Mid Glamorgan, Wales, and Fingland Boarding Kennels, a beautiful barn conversion with a thriving kennels business in Cumbria, are looking forward to their respective new ventures.
May Continues the Trend!
Continuing the busier trend of the year so far, we've had another completion this month:
Rushden Boarding Kennels & Cattery, Northamptonshire, a 3-4 bedroom bungalow with prominent main road frontage and a thriving business. We were pleased to assist the vendor and the new purchasers are delighted to put their own stamp on the business.
We saw the completion of two more sales in April:
Country House Kennels & Cattery, Bedfordshire, a large detached residence with a well established and successful boarding business. The property is in an ideal position to capitalise on the surrounding catchment area and the new owners are excited to take the business forward.
Bewdley Boarding Kennels, Worcestershire, a beautiful, deceptively spacious cottage, is set in a quiet rural location yet has an extremely profitable business which the purchasers are looking forward to expanding further.
Two Completions in One Week!
2018 got off to a flying start with two sales completing in one week.
Chalkwell Kennels & Cattery, Northamptonshire was first through the gate. A very large and well run business, the sale completed after a lengthy legal conveyance, finally allowing the vendors the relaxing retirement they had been looking forward to.
Benwick Kennels, Sussex was next. After another fairly drawn out transaction, the vendor is anticipating a well earned rest, and the new owners are pleased and excitied to be starting a new chapter in their lives.
We wish all the vendors and purchasers well for the future.

2016 turned out to be a slightly busier year than 2015, but prices remained relatively disappointing and business was slower than we would have liked. The properties sold in 2016 came from all parts of the country and at varying prices, from £1,100,000 in Surrey to £435,000 in Yorkshire, and our current list of available properties demonstrates how widespread the market is, in terms of both price and location. A combination of Brexit fears and lack of lending kept the market quiet last year, but we are hoping to emerge from the gloom in 2017!
