Shropshire group sale facilitated by Redwoods Dowling Kerr

Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of Hillside House Nursery Ltd in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

 Hillside House Nursery Ltd have two family run settings: Hook-A-Gate and Lyth Hill. Both nurseries offer a comprehensive and exciting curriculum for young children from birth to five years of age.

Established for 17 years under the careful ownership of Janet and Alfie Phillips, Hillside House Nursery Ltd in Shrewsbury has cultivated an impressive reputation for providing quality childcare across both settings.

The nurseries are open for 51 weeks of the year and the operating times are Monday to Friday from 7:50am to 6.00pm.

The Lyth Hill setting has been rated “Outstanding” on 5 consecutive inspections and the Hook-A-Gate setting was also awarded an impressive “Outstanding” rating on its first inspection in 2016.

Understanding the buyer’s requirements to acquire the very best premium Freehold nursery settings in affluent locations across the country, we approached the owners with a potential sale opportunity.

Delighted with the outcome of the sale Janet and Alfie Phillips of Hillside House Nursery Ltd commented;

“From receiving the initial letter from Redwoods Dowling Kerr to actually getting an offer to buy our business was very fast, efficient and professional. We felt that the negotiation process was very efficient and professional, and we feel both parties have a very good deal.

The solicitors to which Redwoods Dowling Kerr recommended to use for the due diligence process have also been outstanding.

Throughout the process we have always known that if we needed help and support you were only a phone call away. We would like to personally thank you Jenna and wish you every success for the future.”

Director of Childcare & Education for Redwoods Dowling Kerr, Jenna Caldwell commented;

“I am delighted to have been able to assist Janet and Alfie with the sale of Hillside House Nursery Ltd. Both nurseries are of exemplary quality and I know they will continue to thrive under their new ownership. I would also like to thank Georgina Bryant and Rob Davenport of Barcan+Kirby Solicitors who acted for the owners. It has been a pleasure to act for the buyers in this transaction and I look forward to working with them on many more acquisitions.
