An exciting opportunity to purchase a delightful trout fishery at the foot of the Howgill Fells and within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This compact rural Estate, set in around 12.5 acres of grounds, is comprised of a substantial four bedroom detached family home with double garage, orchard and private gardens, around one acre of woodland, paddocks, three trout lakes, trout rearing facilities, fishing lodge, cafe, tackle shop and smokehouse.
The property is situated within the scenic Lune Valley close to the charming village of Newbiggin-on-Lune. Bessy Beck is found only five miles south-west of the market town of Kirkby Stephen and approximately fourteen miles north-east of Kendal.
The attractive four bedroom house sits discreetly to the rear of the estate and was constructed in 1996 to a very high standard. The house is subject to a restriction that the occupier is to be the operator of the fishery.
The house is built over a number of levels and enjoys an elevated position overlooking the trout farm, ponds and tearoom to the north and scenic Howgill Fells to the rear.
The business has been successfully run by the current vendors for the last fifteen year and further details can be found at; www.bessybecktrout.co.uk. Bessy Beck has entertained the Jack Charlton Disabled Anglers Competition, Cumbria Fishing Festival and regular corporates.
In addition to the three substantial ponds are 8m and 3m diameter rearing tanks which are also gravity fed from Bessy Beck.
There is a detached tea room with kitchen and toilet facilities, car parking area tackle, smokery and gutting shed.
The property presents a compact rural retreat and business opportunity. The layout has been well thought out and offers lots of potential for further growth and expansion.
