Meridian Business Sales are privileged to offer to the market this excellent training and events venue which was established by our client in 1982. The only reason this brilliant business is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to take a well deserved retirement.
Since the business was established our client has continually developed and improved the 20 acre site introducing new lines and income streams which have enhanced the business massively.
Our client informs us that they currently generate a respectable annual turnover which is derived from offering swimming, running and cycling alongside a range of other sports to clients and renting land and buildings to clients who wish to set up their own business within the site.
On the site there is currently an 11 acre clean water lake with no incoming streams and due it’s clay content, gives a tropical colour appearance. The lake has a 600 meter swimming lap course, while a running track surrounds the lake. There is also a mapped cycle route. The lake is a big attraction for open water swimming,
canoeing and jet skis. Jet skis are allowed on the lake on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Clients can either rent jet skis and canoes or bring their own. There is also an extremely busy 50mph kart track which is 360m long and attracts clients from all over the country for their stag and hen parties etc. The kart track runs Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9:00am – 4:00pm but it has no opening limits and as there are flood lights on the site the kart track could open evenings.
Planning permission has been approved for a spectacular building to be built, which consist of a 60 seater restaurant, a large retail sports shop and changing facilities with additional space available for a future gym and physio rooms. It is 600sqm in size and can cater for weddings,
corporate meetings etc. The intention is that it will be a fastfood type restaurant during the day, changing to a classy one in the evenings.
A military style assault course is now under construction and this will be for strict training and not events. Giving all those entering tough mudder etc races an opportunity to pretrain.This will be run by ex-army instructors and already has bookings running into the following years.
There is scope for a future purchaser to introduce activities such as mini golf and other sports or even a camp site to increase the turnover and to make the site used all year round.
This would be the perfect place to set up a cable ski wakeboard park, the place would make a massive tourist attraction especially for stag, hen and corporate parties or the lake can remain as open water swimming. As triathlon events are increasing, this would bring in larger revenue as the lake is famed for its clean water, etc. Other parts of the land consist of a field are which would be suitable with marquees for parties.
Our client organises swimming events with very successful swimmers coming from all over. Our client gives people the opportunity to rent the lake for charity events or for there own races. There is also a BBQ area that is available to rent for parties etc.
Our client has built up a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade alongside good word of mouth recommendations.
This is a tremendous opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this fantastic business is not to be missed. Note: Our client owns the 20 acre site, 50% of the Karting shares and 100% of West Country Leisure.
