Caravan Park
The caravan park is located to the east of the farmhouse and buildings and occupies an area of approximately 3 acres (1.2 hectares) of grassed area with some hard standing pitches, surrounded by woodland.

The park has been developed by the previous occupier following the granting of a variation to the original planning permission in 2006 to allow for the use of the land for 30 static caravans and 20 touring caravans and for the winter storage of 10 of the 20 touring caravans.

The site has a current licence with South Derbyshire District, which subject to completion of a transfer of a licence application can be transferred to an incoming purchaser/s, noting that a site inspection may take place.

There is a toilet block and wash facilities in situ, together with a number of electric hook-up points serving the individual caravan pitches.

The current rateable value is £4,850 per annum.

Information on the existing occupier’s income/ turnover, and the conditions of the current planning consent may be obtained from the selling agent.

Prospective purchasers will need to satisfy themselves as to all planning and licence matters in respect of the caravan park.

In addition the grassland extends to about 14.17 acres (5.74 hectares) and has been utilised for livestock grazing. The remaining land comprises the farmhouse and buildings, caravan park, woodland areas and a small pond.

The land has been farmed under a licence and vacant possession will be available post September 2021.
