Business VIEWING STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
Offers Around £300,000
The premises and popular all year-round holiday business, has been operated and developed by the current vendors for several years and truly has to be seen to be both believed, and to appreciate the uniqueness of this opportunity. The business is now being sold due to our clients’ personal commitments and need to relocate.
This is a truly magical coastal lifestyle opportunity for those wanting a relaxed work life balance with income, plus a steadily growing business opportunity. The quiet and beautifully located development consists of two charming dwellings, outbuildings, workshops and a popular certificated hard standing campsite area.
One of the two main properties, is a charming two-bedroomed holiday cabin, and the other being a large and luxuriously appointed, converted first class railway sleeper carriage. It is one of only a handful made that is surviving today. Having been attractively re-located, the vendors have totally refurbished the 70ft carriage, which now provides a boutique style dwelling to use all year round. Offering two double-bedrooms with en-suites, the accommodation has an open plan living area, complete with fully fitted kitchen. Outside, it has surrounding decking with unobstructed views. It is perfect as a stunning holiday let or for the private use of the new owners. Besides the carriage, both cabin and campsite also offer wonderful views over the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds and surrounding countryside.
In addition, located between the 2 main properties, the site also has of a charming cabin style office, plus an all-weather bar, BBQ and games area. The current owners also have the luxury of a discretely plumbed and located hot tub area.
The small hard standing C.L. campsite has been designed to accommodate motor homes and tourers, and consists of five designated bays, all with 16amp electrical points. To service the campsite, there is a separate cabin containing a WC, shower, washing facilities, pot wash, information and chemical loo disposal. There is also a seated campers’ patio area which makes this site a popular and regular place to stop for both UK and international guests.
The coastal site is close to a host of attractions, the main one being situated alongside a steam railway station. The railway runs on occasional days and events only, and is a large contributor to the footfall of guests using the site.
There are two country pubs serving good food and ale just over a level mile walk, cycle or drive away. A post office and shop in the next village, plus farm shops, and numerous additional pubs and restaurants. Fishing, sailing, nature reserves, charming market towns and seaside resorts are all a short drive or cycle away from its quiet countryside situation. With Donna Nook seal sanctuary, WW2 airbases, canal walks, cycle paths, windmills, beaches and museums peppering the area, this is a highly desirable proposition, as a lifestyle choice with income, or a sound leisure business investment.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity for someone to acquire one of the most truly unique properties in the country, with the benefit of an established, popular and growing business attached. The business has a strong internet presence in place for the campsite and cabin, with both commanding excellent reviews, with the cabin having gained 2017 Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence status. As a perfect semi- retirement investment, there is also the ability to increase rental income further. By utilising the main dwelling as a holiday let and possibly acquiring further accommodation nearby, available by separate negotiation, there is excellent growth opportunity.
This is a truly amazing opportunity, and Hilton Smythe advise early viewing to take in the full potential this truly unique site offers.
