Barmston Farm is privately situated in an accessible yet secluded parcel of land located between the waterways of Barmston Drain and the River Hull on the south east edge of Woodmansey village near Beverley. The sale of the property presents a genuinely rare opportunity to purchase a profitable leisure business situated in a rural position yet being very accessible to the Historic Minster town of Beverley and a wide range of nearby amenities and services. Since purchasing the property approximately sixteen years ago the current owners have painstakingly developed the property into a versatile and profitable holiday park with fishing lake business and there is further scope for expansion and development subject to consents.

The caravan site at Barmston Farm is situated in an attractive setting with five staric vans nicely spaced in mature grounds near an ornamental pond. The site generates a good annual turnover and currently comprises five fully furnished, site owned static vans which provide holiday accommodation. The static caravans all provide 3 bedroom accommodation and provide an open plan living/dining room with kitchen, shower room and three bedrooms. Externally the caravans are situated in a large lawned area with picnic benches.

There are three holiday cottages which have been developed from the conversion of former farm buildings/stables. The cottages are 5 Star rated and provide comfortable and well presented 2 bedroom accommodation. Dairy Cottage is a disabled friendly cottage providing a boot room which leads through to an open plan kitchen/dining/living room and then to two bedrooms and a large wet room. Otter and Fox Cottages are adjoining cottages both providing an entrance lobby boot room, open plan kitchen/living/dining area with two bedrooms and a bathroom. Externally the cottages have private seating and barbecue areas.

The property includes a well regarded fishing lake which was purpose built and amounts to around 3 acres with a total of 40 fishing platforms and with an average depth of between 6ft to 8ft. The lake has been well stocked with a range of coarse fish including Carp, Bream, Roach, Rudd, Perch and Tench. The lake is highly regarded for its stock of Carp with fish up to 30lb having been caught and the water is known to hold some of the largest Bream in the area with fish over double figures having previously been caught. In 2013 a 9lb8oz Eel was caught at the fishery which is one of the largest caught in the UK. The lake has historically been operated for holiday makers and as a day ticket fishery, however recently the current owner has changed the fishery to be operated for holiday makers and season ticket holders only. There is the benefit of a high quality Otter Fence surrounding the perimeter together with a three phase electric supply and a high quality CCTV system in place.

Situated in a ring fence, in all the property amounts to approaching 21 acres including 3 acre fishing lake, 18 acres of which are owned by the vendor and 2.5 acres are rented under a tenancy agreement costing £90 per year. The land includes around 3 acres of well fenced holding paddocks near the buildings and yard which are used to accommodate the various animals and a further 2 acre paddock to the north. The fishing lake is situated within circa 10 acres of grassland and the remainder of the land is the yard, buildings, gardens and grounds. The current vendors rent an additional 2.5 acres of riverside grazing land owned by the Environment Agency which adjoins the property and we understand that this arrangement will be allowed to continue if required.
