Pool one has 16 pegs, pool two has 12 pegs and pool three has 6 pegs with each pool having a centre island. Access to the pools is via hardcore tracks with a good size car parking area being located just off the main driveway and immediately adjacent to the fishing pools. The pools are all landscaped with shrubs and trees providing a very pleasant location with excellent views around. Adjacent to the car park area is a summer house complete with electricity supply which is used in connection with the fishing business. The buildings directly to the north of the car park area are also included within this lot and consist of a three bay steel construction store with brick walls and monopitch roof plus a further steel portal framed monopitch building adjoining the above which is suitable for machinery storage. Lying to the east of the pools is a level paddock which itself extends to 2.91 Acres (1.176 Ha) and which could potentially be utilised in conjunction with the fishing business for camping or caravanning (subject to the appropriate permissions).
