Full description

A delightful holiday park situated between the towns of Falmouth and Helston. The site which is well-maintained throughout boasts a hire fleet of 23 static caravans, 1 additional static used for storage, 6 residential park homes, touring field - majority with hook ups - spacious owners' 5-bedroomed three storey house plus necessary amenity buildings, etc.

Situation - The Park occupies a prominent trading location with main road frontage on the A394 between the towns of Helston and Falmouth, the main link to the Lizard Peninsula. The town of Helston boasts a selection of national and niche retailers and is home to the Royal Naval Air Station at Culdrose, adjoining which is Flambards, one of the County's most popular theme parks.

The town of Falmouth regularly plays host to national and international sailing events and boasts an array of glorious sandy beaches, one of the largest natural harbours in the world and has a selection of quality restaurants including a Rick Stein outlet.

The nearby Lizard Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with glorious beaches and some of the most picturesque coastline within the United Kingdom, much of which enjoys the protection of the National Trust. In summary this is the perfect location for a holiday park such as Retanna, with easy access to the aforementioned amenities and attractions exploiting the tourist and commercial trade from Falmouth and its major port industry.

Description - The site has been comprehensively upgraded during our clients' 19 year tenure and in brief comprises a gently sloping site of approximately 6 acres with 6 Residential Park Homes, a hire fleet of 23 statics, two camping fields, caravan storage and workshop area, children's play area, games room and amenity block. Most notably is the owners' 5-bedroomed split level house which is believed to have been constructed in the mid-1970's incorporating a Reception and Shop. Our clients have also introduced free wifi throughout the site, including the camping field.

The combined turnover for the year ending 31st December 2015 was £142,459. Currently there are 6 privately owned Park Homes occupied producing a combined ground rent of circa £764 per calendar month. Full accounting information will be made available subsequent to a viewing appointment in the usual manner.

The site has a 12 month licence for 40 static holiday caravans (24 fleet hire units currently sited including 1 used as storage), 24 touring caravans, tents or motor homes and our clients opt for changeover days from Friday through to Monday in order to avoid the necessity for excessive staffing. The 6 Park Homes have full residential permission and are all sited. There is obvious potential to exploit the current permission by increasing the static hire fleet by another 17 units but as our clients have reached retirement this has not progressed.

A copy of the Site Licence is available upon request.
