Martin Freeman FRICS, a partner in Fenn Wright, leads the Water and Leisure team, which is based in Essex and operates throughout the UK. Martin’s team has been specialising in the sale, purchase and valuation of fisheries for more than 20 years. However, over the years the business has evolved. Today the team’s expertise covers everything from holiday complexes and angling centres to water sports parks and abstraction licences.

UK market view

In terms of water and leisure properties, lifestyle properties with fishing lakes, holiday accommodation and an owner’s residence are the most sought after property type in the sector. Forty percent of our sales in recent years were in this category. However, demand for all types of coarse fisheries, especially those with carp, remained strong too. Properties priced over £1 million are less popular - a trend which has been reflected in the wider country homes market too.

Thinking of selling your property?

Request a free market appraisal of your business property

In most cases, we will carry out a market appraisal for owners considering selling their property on a ‘no obligation’ basis. Occasionally if a valuation is required at short notice or significant travel costs will be incurred we may levy a modest charge.
