Project Info

A long established, thriving and profitable outdoor and leisure clothing and giftware retail business forming part of an imposing freehold property encompassing a beautiful four bedroom family home, occupying a prominent elevated position at the head of Market Place in the delightful Peak District tourist destination of Castleton.

This unique, niche market opportunity was successfully sold for our happy clients following a great deal of hard work over an extended period.

  • Client: The Old Barn, Castleton, Derbyshire

“Hi Greg and Beverley, we are pleased to confirm we are beginning to settle in and adjust to retirement. It was unfortunate that our sale became protracted due to being in a niche market at a bad time economically. One thing that we did find is how markedly standards of service have declined over the years in almost all associated commercial areas, be it law, accountancy, banking, estate agencies or surveying.

The service we received from you and your wife at Business Partnership was a refreshing exception to this!

You retained a direct relationship with us, with a positive ‘can do’ proactive attitude, offering advice with direct clarity so that we could benefit of your experience. You were on top of matters at all times when monitoring leads, with us being confident that all interested parties were approached with the same clear objectivity and positivity shown to clients.

We would certainly recommend you to anybody wishing to sell a business, and Marion and I thank you again for all your efforts.”
