Luxury fishing lodge site for sale in desirable Suffolk coastal location
Mells Hamlet Retreat is set in beautiful secluded parkland just a short distance from Suffolk’s Heritage Coast. The 29-acre site in the River Blythe Valley has full planning permission to be developed into a luxury holiday lodge business, set around three existing established lakes.
This former sand quarry, lying between the market town of Halesworth and village of Wenhaston, is being offered to the market by Fenn Wright’s Water & Leisure team and comes with a guide price of £1,275,000.
Planning permission has been granted to develop the site into 39 luxury lodges of 5 different designs, each of which will be perfectly positioned to enjoy extensive views across the lakes and to the countryside beyond.
The approved plans also include provision for a reception/office, tennis and boules courts, boathouse and site store building.
The site already benefits from existing infrastructure and a landscaping scheme, and the sale includes all fixtures, fittings and fish stocks in the lakes, the largest of which contains carp of up to 20lbs.
Tom Good, Associate Partner at Fenn Wright said, “Once the lodges are completed, Mells Hamlet Retreat will offer a peaceful haven for holidaymakers, whilst being within easy reach of the popular towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. Dunwich Heath and RSPB Minsmere are also just a short distance away. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a site ready for development into a leisure business in one of the most desirable locations in Suffolk.”
