The business was established in 1984 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2001. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients" desire for a well-deserved retirement.

The business operates from March to October and generates a turnover in the region of 32,000 per annum, with a good gross profit, as of 2016 accounts.

This is a beautiful caravan/camping site in prime location set within 3 acres of grounds with outstanding views.

The camping field with a central gravelled driveway has 14 hardstandings and 25 electric hookups, water points are situated around the field. The business also includes a beautiful detached PERIOD HOUSE surrounded by attractive gardens and a vegetable area and a polytunnel plus an additional one bedroomed cottage, a chalet and a very large barn.

The business has built up a very enviable reputation within the area for the high quality services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

The campsite belongs to the following affiliations. It is certified by The Camping and Caravanning Club, the Christian Caravan and Camping Fellowship and the AA approved Caravan and Camping - three chevrons - rating scheme.

We feel there is massive scope to increase the turnover by embarking on an advertising and marketing campaign, as well as maximising social media and networking, there is also the possibility to change the use of the large timber shed/barn which is included as it has been used for a number of types of businesses before. A new owner could also utilise the cottage and use it as a holiday let to command a higher rental yield.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level, therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
