Leek is a popular and busy market town. It has had a lengthy history and retains a number of old and interesting buildings. It retains, too, its essential character as a market town serving a wide area although it grows in importance as a residential area. Numerous bus services link it with the rest of Staffordshire and much of nearby Derbyshire, Cheshire and Manchester. Nearby Macclesfield offers commuters easy access to Manchester International Airport and its connection with the North West motorway network are approximately thirty minutes away by car and the railway station in Macclesfield provides fast and frequent Intercity and commuter links with Manchester, London and the surrounding business centres. 

Description Beaver Hall Equestrian Centre & Gooseneck Farm is a former Dairy Farm that has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment, modernisation and transformation by the current vendors to develop what is today a truly outstanding Equestrian Centre & Rural Leisure Complex. The business is being run as a Going Concern & figures can be made confidentially available to seriously interested parties on viewing. The business is multi-faceted and the vendors have secured further planning consents that offer vast potential to further expand the site, business & income stream. 

Business The business has planning permission to run 150 events per annum & 6 large non Equestrian Events.

The camp site, currently with 7 usable pads, has proved very popular & planning has now been secured to upgrade to 12 camping pods plus an onsite Camp Shop to further enhance future income streams.
