Christie & Co has announced the sale of Brookfield Day Nursery & Holiday Club in Crawley, Sussex.

Established in 2000, Brookfield Day Nursery &vHoliday Club is an ‘Outstanding’-rated day nursery setting for up to 80 children aged three months to five years at the nursery, and up to 12 years at the holiday club.

This unique setting, which encourages children to explore and learn about the natural world, is situated on a large plot with over an acre of gardens in the West Sussex town of Crawley.

Following a confidential sales process with Sophie Willcox at Christie & Co, it has been purchased by award-winning forest and farm school nursery group, Little Barn Owls, which has four other settings across Sussex.

Hayley Peacock, director at Little Barn Owls, said: “We are thrilled to have found the perfect setting to add to the LBO group.

“The high standards and expertise of the team, combined with a property with land, is a rare find and one that suits us wonderfully.

“Our farm school animals and rewilding project will really flourish here.”

Willcox added: “Brookfield is a unique opportunity being centrally located in the Gatwick Diamond Business area, while enjoying access to large grounds and woodland.

“Brookfield Day Nursery is one of several freehold nurseries I have sold in the south in the last month or so.

“Alongside my recent leasehold transactions, it shows that there is demand for both types of businesses.”

Brookfield Day Nursery & Holiday Club was sold for an undisclosed price.
