A campsite and touring caravan park that offers a lifestyle business opportunity in idyllic countryside near the cathedral city of Hereford has been brought to the market by Colliers International for £1.25million.

Cuckoo’s Corner, at Moreton-on-Lugg, comprises 20 pitches for touring caravans and tents, plus a detached four-bedroom house set in private grounds.

Ben Jones, director, Colliers International, who is sole agent, said: “Cuckoo’s Corner has become available for only the second time in 28 years, and, as with the previous occasion, is as a result of the owner’s decision to retire.

“The vendors have developed a thriving ‘lifestyle’ business with great growth potential. The exceptional quality of the park and its facilities, alongside the strength of the trading location, have led to impressive levels of repeat bookings, and consistently high occupancy levels.

“This, coupled with minimal overheads, results in an extremely profitable business opportunity.”

Although Cuckoo’s Corner is set in unspoilt Herefordshire countryside and is well-placed for access to several areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and National Parks, it also benefits from a prime trading position, with passing trade due to its frontage to the A49.

The internationally famous Symonds Yat Rock and Clearwell Caves, within the Wye Valley, are both within 45 minutes’ drive, and the area is popular for activities including canoeing and kayaking; shooting; fishing; hang-gliding; golf and walking.

Mr Jones added: “A particular attraction of Cuckoo’s Corner for prospective owners is the handsome owners’ accommodation.

“This substantial four-bedroom detached property is separated from the remainder of the park by a mature hedgerow, and includes a large lounge/dining room with wood-burning stove; a kitchen; a snug; a utility room; plus a shower room, an en-suite shower, and a bathroom.

“The beautiful enclosed rear garden has a summer house and a cricket pavilion, as the park was developed over the former village cricket ground. There is also a large double garage.”
