Baker Payne are pleased to offer For Sale the Leasehold of this superb little children's soft play business, the Play Castle, TA21. Recent price reduction owing to vendor's other pressing business interests.

Opened just over 4 years ago, and recently starting to turn profit is this modern recently fitted children's soft play centre and social hub for young families. Aptly named the Play Castle owing to its knights of the realm theming, there was a large capital expenditure at the point of set-up, on new play equipment including the castle climbing frame itself, operational fixtures & fittings, kitchen and back office areas, and the entire presentation of the unit. (Current asset value circa £38,000) Adjusted net profits are in the region of £15,000 pa for the 2017 LTD company accounts, with 2018 showing a bottom line net profit of £8000 before reconstitution and a solid £60,000 annual turnover.

Flexible lease terms by negotiation

This business has grown very quickly from a standing start, generating turnover in the region of £60,000 per annum (reported) with notable annual growth and consistency. Locally renowned for general children's soft play and leisure, birthday parties and functions, the business has largely grown organically from word of mouth, social media, local family toddler groups and socials, with very little in the way of marketing and advertising costs being spent at all. Clientele is attracted from a 20 mile or so radius at least.

Although an already successful business much popular than some of its local competitors, there is plenty of room for scope and growth, or potential change of use to a day nursery, creche, holiday and breakfast club or similar, with large demand for all these services locally.

Chelston roundabout is focal point just off junction 26 of the M5 motorway adjacent several new developments both commercial and residential, including the popular and recently constructed Sky Lark Marstons pub and hotel, as well as West Park. Play Castle bounces well of the passing trade from the adjacent trampoline park.
