Roger Hannah & Co have been appointed to market a well-established fisheries and modern restaurant/café in Carnforth, close to the Lake District for £1m.
The fishery sits on 55 acres with 9 well stocked fishing lakes and the award winning restaurant/coffee house, The Catch 23, which was completed in 2012 to a high standard.
The site at The Catch 23 and Borwick Fishery combines an idyllic location with accessibility, being just off the M6, approximately 15 miles south of Kendal and The Lake District. The current owners have built up two successful businesses, The Catch 23 last year turned over approximately £330,000 and the Fisheries business turned over approximately £66,000.
The new owners could look to build on the solid foundations that have been built, with a potential to increase turnover by extending the opening hours of the restaurant to evenings. There is also the potential to further develop the site and the current owners have had informal discussions with Lancaster City Council, who have confirmed that in principal they are not adverse to further development of the site. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with this regard.
Stuart Cooper, Director at Roger Hannah & Co commented “We are delighted to have been instructed to advise on the disposal of this unique opportunity. The fisheries and restaurant have been progressively managed to create a sustainable business with many opportunities to increase the businesses and further develop the 55 acre site. Opportunities like these are rare, especially when situated so close to The Lake District boasting excellent access adjacent to the M6.”
