Christie & Co brings to market former North Somerset pub with planning permission for large day nursery

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has brought to market The Woodspring in Weston-super-Mare, a former pub with planning permission for a 100-place day nursery.

This sale presents an exciting opportunity for a new owner to acquire a large blank canvas day nursery property with lots of development potential. The building already has a suitable kitchen space and multiple toilets, and ample parking and space for outdoor play areas.

This site sits on the main road of the large village of Worle in the historic seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset. The village is historically significant and sits just 3.6 miles from Weston-super-Mare beach and 18 miles east of the city of Bristol.

There are a number of new residential developments in the pipeline in the local area, thanks to government housing targets, which are set to commence in September 2021. Currently, the total population of Weston-super-Mare is circa 80,000 though this is expected to increase with the number of new developments which, in turn, will heighten demand for additional nursery spaces.

The Woodspring is currently owned by Boogasaurus Ltd which is looking to lease the premises out after some initial off-market interest as a day nursery.

Jassi Sunner, Associate Director at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “Obtaining planning permission for a sizeable day nursery in a prominent location is a real coup and attractive proposition for anyone looking to take on this new lease and business venture. This former pub offers so many unique possibilities for a day nursery operator, from the large open-plan former bar area and restaurant space to the industrial kitchen and multiple toilets. The parking and large outdoor area is also ideal for a day nursery setting. With great access along a commuter route in and out of the ever-growing town, there are few obstacles in making a future business successful here.”

The asking price for The Woodspring is available upon application.
