Full description

Situated in a stunning countryside location comprises a substantial freehold fishery business with great potential for extending the business which is currently run on a ''leisurely basis'', it is considered that subject to obtaining all necessary consents the existing outbuildings could be converted to provide holiday accommodation and a farm shop.
The bungalow is currently under construction and is ready for internal fitting. NB. the current owner would be prepared to finish the property to an agreed specification or as seen. The property will enjoy unspoilt views over the wooded grounds and lakes.
PLANNING: Planning consent Ref: 12/02300/FUL was granted by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council subject to conditions. Potential buyers should be aware that condition 8 states that the occupation of the dwelling shall be limited to a person solely or mainly working or last working in the locality in agriculture (as defined in Section 336 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990) or forestry or a widow or widower of such a person and to any resident dependents.
The property is situated about two miles from the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells and about one and three quarter miles from Frant Main Line Station. The area is well known for it's shopping, country pubs and leisure facilities. A beautiful location in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the 'Garden of England'.

The Business - Established by the current owners over twenty years ago since when they have spent a considerable amount of time and effort building it up to it's present size. It has an excellent reputation and is well known by fishermen throughout the U.K. and abroad. It is said to have some of the biggest fish in the South-East of the United Kingdom. Our client is selling for retirement reasons. The owner is happy to train a new owner in order to encourage 'best practice' with the fisheries.

The Bungalow - Currently under construction when completed the bungalow will comprise an entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, office, utility room, bedroom one with en-suite bathroom, bedroom two and a shower room.

Three Detached Outbuildings - Set in various locations and set amongst the estate, the outbuildings are currently being used for storage of equipment required for the running of the business. The outbuildings were built with the intention of gaining planning permission at a future date to be used as holiday accommodation. The outbuilding situated at the car parking area would be suitable as a farm shop with cloakroom/showering facilities.

The Land And Fishing Lakes - A secluded woodland setting with off road parking for about twelve cars. There are two lakes which contain some of the largest fish in the south-east and some great stock fish for the not so adventurous. The fishery welcomes anglers of all abilities. The owner is always on hand to offer friendly advice and tips to new comers, to make certain that your equipment is in order to cater for the odd 40lber. The owner has advised that they currently have at least ten fish over this size and in May this year one weighed in at 61lb.

Fish - The lakes have top quality fish - Mirror, Common and Grass Carp, many in excess of 30lb and a record breaking one weighing in at 63lb, these attract the best experienced carp fishermen. The owner says that ''Fishermen can spend between twenty four hours and a week at a time (sometimes even longer) at the lakeside''. There are also good size Perch and Roach for the day ticket anglers who normally visit throughout the winter months.
