A rare opportunity to purchase an established and well regarded coarse fishery with five well stocked lakes
Red Hill Fishery provides the rare opportunity to acquire an established award-winning coarse fishing establishment with five well stocked fishing lakes hosting 118 pegs, a large agricultural building and paddocks.
Red Hill hosts a large number of match days throughout the year with daily weights often exceeding 350lbs and competitions run by angling clubs from all over the country.
Given the accessibility to and around the site with gravelled tracks to each peg, ample parking and well managed swims, Red Hill has become known locally as one of the best coarse fisheries in the area being well suited to anglers of all abilities. The site is completely otter fenced for security and the protection of the fish.
The agricultural building (120ft x 40ft) provides excellent storage space for machinery and equipment for the maintenance of the property but also houses a meeting room with ample room for meeting and greeting visitors especially on match days. There is also a welfare block on site draining to a private septic tank.
The additional land provides extensive opportunity to develop tourism led enterprises (STPP) which would benefit from the private and water front setting, yet within easy reach of Monmouth town and all that it has to offer visitors to the area.
The lakes themselves are outlined below:
Penny’s – established in 2007, this 40-peg lake is well stocked with a variety of species including common carp, F1s, tench, roach, rudd, barbel, chub, bream and golden tench. Depths vary from 2ft to 14ft down the middle.
Sophie’s – one of the original pools at Redhill with 20 pegs. Sophie’s is many anglers’ favourite. It holds a significant number of mirror and common carp to double figures, as well as good sized tench, roach and rudd.
Molly’s – Another popular pool with 21 pegs and similar depths and characteristics is Molly’s. In addition to the common and mirror carp, Molly’s also has ghost carp to 12lb and skimmer bream.
Tilly’s – The original pool at Redhill with over 24 pegs offering specimen carp to over 20lbs, as well as quality tench, roach, rudd, bream and chub.
Micky’s – A smaller lake with just 13 pegs has recently been added at the top end of the complex. Micky’s holds a very healthy stock of prime carp to 7lbs plus some nice tench.
Red Hill offers a truly unique opportunity to further develop the existing offering or develop the site further to add additional income streams providing a truly diversified enterprise should a purchaser wish.
Redhill Fishery is extremely well located just outside Monmouth, with excellent access to the A40. The property has significant potential to further develop the site with far reaching views across the countryside.
