A NORTH Somerset plant nursery has been put up for sale.

Congresbury's Middlecombe Nursery, located on Wrington Road, has been put on the market at a guide price of £1,250,000.

The nursery, which is owned by husband and wife team Nigel and Isy North, comes complete with a café and large retail area, selling a wide variety of shrubs, perennials, climbers, grasses, conifers and trees.

The property's Rightmove description reads: "The site is set back from the road, accessed via a short private driveway which leads directly to the customer parking area.

"The main building is a modernised glasshouse with a gross internal area of 602.82 sqm (6488sqft). The largest section of this building is used as the main indoor sales area which features a range of display sections including Floristry, Plant Care, Potting Shed, Indoor Plants, Wildlife Den, Gardenalia and Vintage. There is also an office and customer till point.

"The remainder of the building is used as the Café which includes a large dining area, servery and professional kitchen.

"Just beyond the café is the newly created outdoor seating area which includes a brick built pizza oven, the owners have hosted a number of pizza evening events that have been well supported by the local community.

"The owners grow a large number of the plants that they retail and have five poly tunnels on site. The plant sales area is well laid out which a wide range of display tables and good signage.

"The owners also keep an area of the site as a garden, showcasing the plants and providing a nice calm area for customers to soak up the surroundings."

It was also noted that the business has the potential to grow.

The description adds: "The business has huge scope to grow, in recent years the owners have added the café and in 2021 finished the new outdoor food area which includes a bar and Pizza oven. Incoming purchasers could continue to grow these new revenue streams.

"At present the garden centre does not have any third party concessions, should the new owner develop the site there is considerable potential to bring in retail partners on concession leases that could help to drive footfall and reduce the seasonality of the trade as well as bringing good stable monthly income.

"Whilst the owner has not ever submitted any planning applications for a change of use and do intend to sell the business as a going concern, it should be noted that the location does appear to offer considerable longer term potential as a development site."

Middlecombe Nursery has been approached for a comment.
