This is an opportunity to purchase a well-established business offering a reliable service of laundering and linen hire.
Padstow lies on the north coast of Cornwall on the western side of the Camel Estuary approximately 7 miles west of Wadebridge. The town is popular with day visitors during the holiday season due to its interesting range of shops, its reputation for restaurants, more particularly Rick Stein’s restaurant, together with features such as the harbour, ferry to Rock and the Camel Trail cycle path to Wadebridge and Bodmin. Whilst Padstow’s resident population is approaching 7,000 persons, its catchment during the holiday season is significantly more, benefiting from a large influx of tourists both from the immediate vicinity as well as Newquay.
The established Laundry business is situated on the popular Trecerus Industrial Estate which is a few miles outside the busy holiday resort of Padstow. The site is situated on the northern boundary of the estate with a rear rural aspect and a number of new units in close proximity.
This is an opportunity to purchase a well-established business offering a reliable service of laundering and linen hire.

The premises are part owned and part leased and the business has a reliable workforce which will form part of a TUPE agreement. Gross receipts approaching £400,000 achieved for year ending March 2017 providing a healthy return and profit.
