Located in Shenington Road, Upper Tysoe, Winchcombe Farm Day Nursery Ltd was established 11 years ago, operating from a Grade-II Listed farm house surrounded by farmland in the Vale of the Red Horse – an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
 
Now, the 3.5 acre site has been converted into a nature lover’s paradise complete with its own mature woodland, pony paddocks, lake, pirate ship and dedicated nature reserve, the nursery also has its very own forest school adventure garden, housing a tree house, summer house and two potential holiday-let buildings - all traversed via a series of interlinked natural stone/wood chip pathways.
 
The current owner of the nursery has decided to retire from the childcare sector, and has charged specialist business property advisers Christie & Co with finding a new owner for the site, which has gone on the market with an asking price of £2.5m.
 
In addition to the nursery building, the site also comprises an impressive residential property offering four double bedrooms (two with en suite bathrooms), lounge, separate dining room, fitted kitchen, downstairs WC and large home office suite. The property is currently being used as a family home by the owners and also forms part of the original farm house.
 
In addition the high profile nursery also offers holiday club facilities and an exciting opportunity to rent out the Tree House for weekend activities.
 
Tamara Skipworth, Business Agent – Childcare at the Birmingham office of Christie & Co, who is handling the sale of the nursery said, “Winchcombe Farm really is a children’s paradise, offering everything that children need, including space, fun, education and excellent quality childcare.
 
 “Winchcombe Farm Day Nursery will act as a solid platform for purchasers seeking to utilise this as a lifestyle business. Prospective owners have the chance to acquire an established childcare setting with the scope and potential to continue to expand.
 
“When the nursery closes its doors over the weekends, the former farm becomes a haven of pure peacefulness and an ideal family home in a spectacular setting.”
