Fantastic opportunity for a fishing enthusiast

If you have a passion for fishing and would like to run a business linked to your favourite sport then this property could present a perfect opportunity.

Strawberry Fields Fishery is situated in a secluded, stunning countryside location near Tunbridge Wells and boasts some of the largest fish in the south-east. Its excellent reputation and with some fish weighing in at around 60lbs means Strawberry Fields attracts fishermen from the UK and abroad.

According to the current owner who is retiring, there is great potential for expanding the business which includes nine acres of woodland and two fully stocked lakes. The last 20 years have been spent building up the business to its current size and the owner is happy to train the purchaser in fishery best practise.

The lakes have top-quality fish including Mirror, Common and Grass Carp, many in excess of 30lb and a record-breaking one weighing in at 63lb. The quality of fish attracts experienced carp fishermen who can spend between 24 hours and a week at a time at the lakeside. There are also good size Perch and Roach for the day-ticket anglers who normally visit throughout the winter months.

There is a detached bungalow that is currently under construction on the site which has views over the woodland and lakes. When completed it will offer an entrance hall, a cloakroom, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, office,utility room, a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a bedroom with a shower room.

To provide additional income, three detached outbuildings in various locations could be converted into holiday lets and a farm shop with cloakroom and showering facilities. Alternative use would be subject to all necessary consents being obtained. The outbuildings are currently being used for storage. Importantly, there is plenty of parking with space for 12 cars.

The property is situated about two miles from the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells and about one and three quarter miles from Frant Main Line Station. The area is well known for its shopping, country pubs and leisure facilities. Some restrictions apply to this property.
