Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Westlake Camping and Fishing.
This thriving business was originally founded by our clients over 21 years ago as a popular and well stocked coarse fishery site with breeds including Carp, Bream, Perch, Chub, Tench, Rudd and Roach to name a few earning the business a fantastic reputation for the quality of catches for the most serious of Anglers.
Westlake Camping and Fishing opens all year round, except February. The business is set within 38 acres of breath taking Welsh countryside, boasting 2 lakes and 2 pools. 25 acres of grassland are leased to a local farmer for £2350 per annum and 1 lake is leased out at £2500 per annum to generate income. Further revenue is derived from 18 season caravan pitches and 2 non season plus a scenic camping area with panoramic views.
We believe the business has the scope for future development, certainly the business would benefit from a marketing and advertising campaign to further promote awareness. The size of the site would allow for additional camping or caravan pitches and perhaps a convenience shop and café could be introduced to generate additional revenue. We feel if these measures were put in place this would have a dramatic impact on future earnings.
The business is complete with a fantastic family home, immaculately presented with 3 good sized bedrooms, with the benefit of a lovely 2 bedroom annexe providing additional living space. Furthermore, there is a lodge on the campsite with the potential to use as further living quarters and perhaps let as holiday accommodation to generate additional income.
We believe this clearly sustainable business would make an ideal acquisition for a family looking for a lifestyle change in this most idyllic of locations.
