A school teacher is looking forward to running her first children’s day nursery after the sale of Mains Farm House Nursery in County Durham.

First-time buyer, Lynsey Roy, beat 10 other interested parties in a bid to acquire the charming children’s day nursery in Chester-le-Street.

Mains Farm House Nursery is a thriving childcare business with capacity for 34 children aged 6 weeks to 5-years-old. It was rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in October 2017 and enjoys an excellent reputation for the quality of childcare provided.

In a joint testimonial, the owners of Mains Farm House Nursery, Maureen Sheekey and Lianne Dixon said:

“I would like to thank Karrina Lee at Redwoods Dowling Kerr for all her support over the past few years, especially during the last 6 months. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Senior sales negotiator Karrina Lee said:

“Mains Farm House Nursery is a well-established business with a great reputation, making this an ideal purchase for first time buyer.

“I wish the vendors, Maureen Sheekey and Lianne Dixon, all the very best for the future. They have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.

“I’d also like to wish Lynsey Roy every success for the future. I’m sure she will enjoy running Mains Farm House Nursery in Co Durham and maintaining its excellent reputation.”
