Aymestrey House and Lodges in Herefordshire on the market

12 09 19 caravan park

Lodge park represents exciting lifestyle business opportunity, says Colliers International.


Aymestrey House and Lodges, near Ludlow in Shropshire, has been brought to the market by global real estate advisor Colliers International with a guide price of £995,000.  
 
The idyllic Herefordshire property extends to 2.2 acres and sits in the village of Aymestrey, 14 miles south of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  
 
Aymestrey itself is mentioned in the Domesday Book and the village pub, The Riverside, was the winner of Visit England’s “Best Tourism Pub” Award in 2018.    
 
A unique feature of the property is Aymestrey House, a substantial four-bedroom character home that is set back from the road behind a landscaped front garden. It retains many original character features including sash windows, picture rails and fireplaces. 
 
Amy Brooksbank, of the holiday parks team at Colliers International in the South West and Wales, said: “Aymestrey House and Lodges would perfectly suit parties looking to enter the holiday market. 
 
Developed in 2007 in the grounds of Aymestrey House, the 1.6 acre lodge park hosts five holiday lodges of Scandinavian round log construction. The lodges have been well-positioned to offer privacy to customers and wonderful views of the surrounding valley. 
 
“This is a highly profitable holiday lettings business. The lodge park trades through the Hoseasons brand and the vendors report a high level of repeat custom.”
