OPTION B

1 x 3 bedroom house

1 x 3-bedroom cottage

Barn – 800m2 with electricity/lighting & business equipment

5.5 Acre Lake with fish stock

1-acre Stock Pond with young fish stock

5.616 Hectares of land

Extremely successful Website and Social Media client base

The owners are quite happy to discuss the current and future potential of the business with serious enquirers; whilst they are visiting the complex as their initial business plan has not reached its full potential and you still have scope to:

* Increase the number of Anglers around the lake if desired.

* Join the original lake and stock pond, increasing the lake’s size and so giving the opportunity to take larger bookings.

* There is a confirmed market to provide meal packs for extra income.

* Winter rental bookings have not yet been offered to increase income.

* Tackle hire and bait sales have not yet been fully realised.

* Airport pickup service would create extra income

This Complex has been developed into a successful and enjoyable family business allowing an enviable income to lifestyle balance rarely found. Bookings mostly take care of themselves and it is no longer necessary to advertise outside of the Website and Social media platforms

Due to the structure of the existing business, should two or more families wish to purchase there are options available for splitting the business.

It is also feasible for a consortium of fishermen to buy the property under an SCI regime in France.

Sometimes things we think out of our reach are attainable.

All the properties are private and independent from each other
