Thriving leisure business for sale in Cumbria

01 Sep 21

Currently on the market, New Mills Trout Fishing Park, a former trout farm in Brampton, Cumbria, has been developed into an attractive and successful mixed use leisure business.  The site extends to approximately 6.9 acres (2.8 hectares) and is superbly located for access to the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland, and the Scottish borders.

The former mill building houses the owners’ accommodation and has been refurbished to a very high standard by the current occupants.  It includes six bedrooms, two of which have balconies, and a beautifully finished kitchen/breakfast room.

Adjacent to the mill is a converted barn, currently rented out and run as a café, with ground floor reception/shop area, a large external decked area, and a commercial kitchen.  The upstairs is currently used as an open-plan function room with additional seating area and toilet facilities.  Other accommodation on the site includes a tackle shop, a party hut used for functions, a 2 bedroom holiday cottage and seven ensuite pods.  The deluxe glamping pods, 3 of which have hot tubs, are located on the hillside with fantastic views of the lakes and surrounding countryside.

The stunning kitchen/breakfast room in the main property at New Mills Trout Fishing Park.

A small paddock is currently used for alpacas and there is a private garden, as well as the main fishing lake which extends to approximately 0.8 acres, stocking rainbow, tiger and brown trout, and the bait pond which is stocked with rainbow trout.

Occupancy is at well over 60% with a healthy list of bookings and additional income is generated through fly fishing day tickets, tuition, tackle sales, parties, and other income streams.

Planning permission was granted to create 5 additional timber glamping pods with track access and parking, one such pod has been built and four pitches are yet to be developed.  The current owners also applied for planning permission to convert a redundant farm building into two holiday cottages, however this has now lapsed.

On the market with the Water & Leisure team at Fenn Wright, offers are sought in the region of £1,800,000, please contact Martin Freeman FRICS on 01206 216541 for further information or find out more below.
