The Orchard Campsite is ideally located on the edge of the delightful village of Whickham Market, Suffolk. The campsite is situated close to the popular Suffolk Heritage Coast and Rendlesham Forest, which is famous for a series of reported sightings of UFOs. The area is very popular with tourists, walkers and cyclists.

Wickham Market is a large village, which is situated within the River Beden valley of Suffolk. The village is famous for the discovery of one of the largest Iron Age finds close by. The hoard of 840 Iron Age gold staters was found in March 2008, in a field at Dallinghoo near the village.

The area of the campsite is served by the public transport system, with bus stops within walking distance of the property. Wickham Market railway station is approximately 2 miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A12 being within easy driving distance of the campsite, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Ipswich is approximately 15 miles away and Felixstowe is 19 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular and busy camping and caravan site in Wickham Market, Suffolk.

The business was established by our clients in 1990 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients' other business interests. The business operates from April to October and generates a turnover in the region of 150,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.

The campsite is set within an 11 acre site with 24 hook ups, 10 of which offer Freesat TV. The River Deben runs alongside of the site, with fishing rights and it forms part of the boundary. The site also boasts a large car park for checking in with approximately 15 spaces. We are advised there is planning in place for 56 x pitches. The site has 3 x phase electricity, mains gas supply and mains sewage facilities.

The site also includes a purpose built shower and toilet block, a snug with seating area, a site shop with off licence, a barbeque area, a hot tub room and several outhouses and storage areas, as well as the four bedroom owner's accommodation, which is decorated to a high standard and very well maintained.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the campsite and the facilities offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The campsite has excellent reviews on the popular travel site Trip Advisor, and has recently been awarded the Certificate of Excellence 2015 Winner.

We are advised that our clients have had planning permission granted for a three bedroom bungalow, for holiday use and three one bedroom holiday lodges, which our client believes could be upgraded to three bedroom lodges.

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