Full Details

Tenement Tarn is a truly unique and exciting business/recreational opportunity to purchase a fully stocked Lakeland tarn with a range of onsite accommodation and opportunity to expand, located in the breath-taking surroundings of the Southern Lake District. Tenement Tarn is located in a beautiful rural setting yet benefits from easy access from the M6 motorway.

The onsite accommodation comprises a one-bedroomed chalet with scope for further development. To the outside buildings include fishing and tackle sheds while there is the benefit of on-site parking. The tarn is currently fished by a local angling club, however the property would suit investors, leisure business operators as well as anyone simply wishing to purchase their very own retreat.

The property extends to 4.6 acres (1.86ha) in its entirety, the central feature of which is a fresh water lake covering 1 acre (0.4ha). Car parking can be found at the head of the lake in front of the 1 bedroomed chalet. The lake has been dredged in the last 5 years, providing deep open water, with a string of islands. There is a mown pathway which runs around the edge of the lake and has an extra loop should a longer walk be preferred. There are also 25 fishing pegs on this route accessible from the pathway.

The perimeter of the lake has been planted with trees and the natural environment allowed to thrive, safeguarding the natural habitat for a wealth of wildlife. Equally to the north of the tarn is a flourishing marsh teaming with flora and fauna providing a truly tranquil setting for nature lovers to enjoy.

The Tarn also benefits from a freshwater feed and an overflow to the River Sprint.

There is a fishermen’s hut at each end of the pool and a steel shipping container for storage. In addition to the existing accommodation, there is also planning permission granted for three camping pods, the owners advise us that the local authority would support further development of the site, however prospective buyers should make their own enquiries.

Sporting rights are believed to be included within the title.

The site is a registered fishery with DEFRA under registration number EW059-Q-842F. At the point of registration, the lake was stocked with Common Carp, Crucian Carp, Roach, Barble, Chub and Tench. The owners then purchased 2000, 4-6” carp, a few months after registration in 2010.
