Full description

Excellent business with annual turnover of circa £440k. Open 12 months of the year with planning permission for 44 static caravans and 87 touring caravans. Hire fleet of 16 static caravans and site reception/shop. Outline PP for manager's accommodation, shop and office. 6 bedroom farmhouse and annexe available by separate negotiation. In all about 7.6 acres.

Situation - Lemonford Caravan Park is set on the outskirts of Dartmoor National Park in South Devon. The closest town is Newton Abbot which is approximately 5 miles to the East of the park. Newton Abbot Railway station has mainline links to London, Penzance and the north.
 
The Cities of Exeter and Plymouth are also within easy reach of the park being 18 and 31 miles respectively via the A38. Exeter has an extensive range of boutique shops, restaurants and cafs whilst also offering a wide range of sporting activities with leisure centres and numerous cycle paths, boat trips and public footpaths along the canal and river.
 
Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront City and has a wealth of attractions and activities that include historic sites and gardens, entertainment venues and the vibrant Barbican area. It also has a busy ferry port that links the City with France and Spain.

Description - The park extends to approximately 7.6 acres of land with mature shrubs and belts of trees creating a number of self-contained areas. It is currently developed for 41 static holiday caravans and 87 touring caravan and camping pitches. Of the 41 static caravans sited, 16 are operated as a letting hire fleet and are included in the sale of the park. The remaining pitches are occupied by privately owned units paying an annual pitch fee.
 
75 of the 87 touring caravans and camping pitches have level hard standings, of which 40 are occupied by seasonal customers. The balance of the plots are used as traditional touring/camping pitches.
 
In the past the owners have successfully applied to the Local Authority to vary the existing planning permission for the site to allow touring caravan pitches to be traded for static holiday caravans. Subject to the necessary permissions being obtained there is further potential for a new owner to continue to increase the total number of holiday static caravans within the site should they so wish.

The Business - Lemonford Caravan Park is a successfully run family business. This highly profitable business has a current turnover circa £440,000pa. For further information please contact us on 01392 680 058

Services - Electricity - Mains 3 phase supply, mains water and drainage, GAS LPG bulk-tanks

Owner's Accommodation & Annexe - Available by separate negotiation is a substantial attached 6 bedroom farmhouse that has been both extended and modernised and the adjacent annexe.

The annexe has 2 bedrooms, a lounge/dining room, separate kitchen and small self-contained courtyard area to the front.
