The business base is in St Issey, a pretty village, approximately 4 miles to Padstow and 4.4 miles to Wadebridge, making this an ideal base to explore North Cornwall and have amenities within a good size town. The business trade areas extend to the far West of Cornwall and the North and South Coasts.
The Manor House and Mill House (owners accommodation) is a Georgian semi detached property arranged over three floors with the owners accommodation attached on one side and enjoying much privacy from the main house.
The property has many character features indicative of the period and has been tastefully updated and improved during our clients tenure to maintain the fabric and integrity of the building as both a business and a home. We are advised the the roof to main part of the house was replaced in March 2019.
We understand a business activity of this type has traded on the site since 1986 and has been in our clients tenure since 2002, who are now looking to sell to explore other business / life opportunities away from this sector. The business introduced the residential instructor training programme in 2009 and in terms of the client split is approximately 50% from Independent Schools (which have very high levels of repeat custom); 30% Residential Instructor Programme ( 4 month courses in off season, average 16 to 20 students pa); 15% Youth Groups and ; 5 % Other.
The business is run by our clients, with up to 10 members of staff, including seasonal and freelance and trades all year, with the Manor House (guest accommodation) being given over entirely as a ‘single let’ for weekly self-catering holiday lets during the month of August, to suit our clients needs.
The business is to be sold by way of an Asset Sale.
In terms of the trade we can advise the Trading Profit and Loss Account show net sales (for the latest year end June 2018) of £460,032 with a Gross Profit Level of 86% and an EBITDA of £152,252. A 3 year average show average sales of c. £400,000 per annum and an EBITDA of c.£120,000, further accounting information will be made to interested parties and their advisers subsequent a viewing / meeting, in the normal manner.
For further information regarding our clients business please see their website www.manoractivitycentre.co.uk
We are pleased to offer the business for sale with a 2 year Purchase Option (from date of agreement to be exercised with 6 months notice). This would allow a buyer to purchase the business including the goodwill / intellectual property and all the trade fixture and fittings, at a cost of £400,000, with an interim operating rental of £25,000 pa. The purchaser can either choose to exercise the option and proceed to purchase the Manor House or at this point relocate the business.
This does not preclude an outright sale for the property / business should a party wish to do so. This is being offered as an option for those who may want to buy the business in the first instance and continue to purchase the property after a 2 year period.
