Millbrook Garden Centre near Monmouth in South Wales has come to market, through Christie & Co, for the first time in fifty years.
Owned and operated by the Wright family since 1971, this family-run garden centre is renowned for its superb horticultural offering, which includes a wide range of unusual plants including exotics.
The business, which enjoys little local competition, has thrived in recent years, benefiting from the recent upsurge in gardening as a result of the pandemic.
The site is located close to the historic town of Monmouth, on the edge of the beautiful Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean and has plenty to offer, being close to seven acres in all.
The grounds feature a number of historic buildings, including a former mill that has been converted into a large five-bedroom house, along with a detached café and substantial dedicated retail area which require some investment. There is also ample customer parking on site.
Tom Glanvill, Retail Associate Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale, and commented, “We are seeing unprecedented demand for garden centres, following a period of exceptional trade in the last year.
'Millbrook is the ideal offering; a strong established freehold business on a large site, with huge potential for further development to modernise the centre and increase the range of products available.”
