Business Description
An ideally situated campsite with three fishing lakes located in a a very private and peaceful location just 1hr 45 mins from London. Set amongst 25 acres of well maintained grounds with 55 pitches and a four bedroom residential house.Current very successful business yet enormous scope for further growth and possible high end glamping (subject to planning). Viewings strictly by appointment and proceedable buyers only.

Privately situated off a country lane and accessed via a private drive through woodland, Riverside lakes is an extremely rare opportunity. With 90% repeat business levels and consistent five star reviews, this business needs little introduction to those familiar with camping in the UK. Having featured in national media, the campsite offers total privacy from neighbouring properties, well-spaced out pitches with good facilities and three lakes. The setting is pretty unique offering complete peace and quiet yet being within just 1hr 45 mins drive from London. Offered to the market with a residential four/five bedroom property included.

Well laid out over 25 acres (12 of which are allocated to the pitches) with meandering pathways, small woodland lakeside walks offering 55 pitches, including 6 bell tent pitches and a lake island providing immense space to each pitch, the site enjoys three well stocked lakes which at present are only for use of those staying at the campsite.
The modern brick built shower block was added by the present vendor and offers eight showers, toilet facilities, day room/kitchen, family bathroom and powder room. The current owners have also set up a child's petting zoo with miniature horses and pigs. The whole atmosphere of the campsite is one of tranquillity and relaxation, with a car ban to the pitches other than to set up and take down. There are two car parks within the site which are sited well away from the pitches. Presently the business operates 6 months of the year from April through to the end of September. The site includes a further eco toilet, well stocked orchard and a further cabin including fridge and store.
Whilst the campsite provides an immediate off the peg business for a new owner, the opportunities to further grow the business are evident and the setting would certainly lend itself well to a high end glamping site, subject to permissions. Accounts will be available upon viewing and signing an NDA.
