Property description

A peaceful and tranquil property with an established holiday lodge business set in a south facing site on the Devon/Cornwall border. Planning permission in place for further development.

Introduction - In a tranquil setting with far-reaching views towards Dartmoor, this is an established self-catering business with 13 two bedroom holiday lodges (one sold on a long lease) overlooking 5 fishing lakes set in 22 acres. With a 4-bedroom owner/managers lodge and planning permission for further development this is an excellent opportunity to purchase an existing holiday business with further potential in North Devon.

Situation - The surrounding rural landscape of Devons Ruby Country offers peace and quiet and an abundance of wildlife. Along with the far-reaching views towards Dartmoor, the property has lovely sandy Cornish beaches to the west, the wild rugged north Devon coast to the north and Exmoor to the east.

For day to day shopping there is Bradworthy (4 miles) and at Holsworthy (5 miles) there is a panier market and a Waitrose supermarket. Bude (7 miles) offers fabulous beaches, ideal for surfing, including Widemouth Bay and Summerleaze. For further exploring Devon and Cornwall the Atlantic Highway (A39) is approximately 4 miles away and the A30 dual carriageway can be joined at Launceston and Okehampton (19 miles and 21 miles respectively).

The Lodges - There are 12 substantial, 2 bedroom, purpose built, luxury timber lodges sleeping between 4 and 6 guests. Spacious and fully furnished with gas central heating they can be used year-round for holidays. All have a covered veranda with
lovely views across the lakes and surrounding countryside. Three of the lodges have been upgraded to VIP lodges with their own hot tubs. Each lodge has parking and there is an on-site laundry room for use by guests.

A further lodge has been sold on a long lease with the owner paying a ground rent, service charge and utility cost each year. Further details available on request.

Reception/Office - At the entrance to the site there is a purpose-built reception building which is also used for fishing related sales. Adjacent is the laundry room.

Owner/ManagerS Dwelling - Completed in 2020 this 4-bedroom lodge has an open plan kitchen/dining/living room with doors to a decked area. The master bedroom has an en-suite, there are 3 further bedrooms, each with a mezzanine level, a family bathroom and a utility room. Private parking and garden.

Further Development - Torridge District Council granted planning permission under reference 1/1178/90/44/0012 for 25 holiday chalets and a club house on 26th February 1991. This was renewed on 16th September 1996 under reference 1/1637/95/44/0012.

The Lakes - There are five coarse fishing lakes on site. Four have large level platforms from which to fish and the specimen carp lake has been left with room for day shelters. The lakes offer a superb, tranquil setting and the current owners choose to offer day permits as well as residents fishing. Fish in the lakes include Carp (20lb plus), Bream 4lb, Tench 3lb, Roach (to 1lb), Bream, Tench, Chub, Ide, Crucians, Eels and some specimen Perch.

The Land - This peaceful site extends to about 22 acres including the five fishing lakes, well maintained grounds and areas of woodland with associated wildlife and birds.
