Previously a residential property, the substantial, two storey detached building was converted for use as a day nursery and features a modern ground floor extension which provides access to the extensive outside play areas. Fully secure and private, the garden is split into three areas with a lawn, plant beds and vegetable patch.



Inside, the setting includes a range of play and learning rooms designed for various age groups from 0-5 years and fully fitted ancillary areas, including a kitchen and kitchenette. Ideal for a first time or existing childcare operator, the property is being sold with all of the existing fixtures and fittings.

Due to its accessible location in a residential area just under a mile from the town centre, the site provides the highly sought after convenience of being close for local parents or for commuting parents passing through. 

The nursery had built up a long established reputation over the years, having opened in 1988, before the owner, Susan Hall, decided to close the business in order to retire. Now looking to sell the site, Ms Hall comments, “For over 30 years, Regent has thrived in Skipton. Our passion for continuous improvement means that we have evolved the nursery and facilities so that they are best in class. We know we provided a loving, caring and supportive environment for children and a unique home from home setting that parents trusted and relied on. That is why, over the years, Regent children often became clients when their own children were ready for nursery. It is now absolutely the right time for this to continue in other hands.”

Vicky Marsland, Business Agent at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and comments, “Regent Private Day Nursery is a truly wonderful setting with large spacious rooms yet still offers a warm homely feel with picturesque views. This present a great opportunity for both a first time buyer or existing operator and as such, we expect a high level of interest.”
