Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire an established childrens Fun Park between Newquay and Wadebridge, with the benefit of Planning Permission for a Touring (80) and Static (10) Caravan Site with and Planning Consent for owners Bungalow / Reception. Set in c. 31 acres, this well presented and equipped site offers a strong business, with growth potential in an ideal holiday location. Viewing advised.

Location - Springfields is ideally situated just off the Trekenning Roundabout on the A39 at St Columb, also with easy access to the A30, making this an ideal location for a wide potential customer base, being close to the major resort of Newquay, close to Wadebridge and Truro. Springfields enjoys a quiet rural valley setting, which makes it popular for the Camping Market, which has been offered on a low key basis by our clients initially, which now has the opportunity to expand significantly via its recent Planning Consent.

The location of Springfields is regarded a key asset of its recent success and its future growth plans.

The Property/Business - We understand Springfields has traded for the past circa 20 years, having diversified from a former farm, has been in our clients tenure for the past two seasons, who during their tenure have significantly improved the infrastructure and buildings of the site, improved the business model and most recently gained Planning Permission for a dedicated campsite in connection with the Leisure Park, as this is considered central to the the growth of the business.

In terms of the ethos of Springfields, it is described as a traditional family friendly fun park with activities for the whole family, is a safe environment and has numerous facilities for a whole days activity and with its circa 10,000 sqft play barn there is plenty of space for indoor activity.

The business trades on a seasonal basis and we are advised the turnover for the period 1st March 2016 to 31st October 2016 showed net sales approaching £208,000, with approximately 60% being from admissions, approximately 30% from cafe sales and the remainder from ancillary income, producing a gross profit level of 83% and an adjusted net profit during that period of £93,847 (after deducting all normal overheads and indeed wages of £54,449). Further accounting information would of course be made available subject to a viewing appointment in the normal manner.

Our clients have also commissioned some analysis in respect of the potential campsite income and profitability, which could be made available to interested parties as this is obviously a potential high level of income, not only from the campsite but also related sales into the Leisure Park. Further information regarding the site can be seen via our clients website
