Sovereign Business Transfer brings to the market an exquisite small holding, Shooting Centre and Retail Outlet which is situated in West Cumbria on the edge of the Lake District national park.

Since 1988 they have been supplying quality new and used bespoke firearm solutions. The reputation of this business is due to its longevity, honesty and is known as a reliable, cost-effective firearms supplier and associated equipment.  A Home Office Approved Shooting club has been established for many years using the ranges; on average the Club has 100 members per year. The well-stocked retail shop, sells everything for the shooter including an impressive array of air guns, firearms and shotguns, including ammunition and reloading equipment. The shop premises and ranges are fully secured and sit within their own area of the property. The business is currently run to accommodate the owner’s lifestyle in this idyllic location; the reason for sale is strictly for a well-earned retirement.

The business has a separate access and substantial car parking. There are three main ranges available these are an indoor air rifle and pistol range, an indoor gallery rifle and long barrelled pistol range with electronic turning targets also an outdoor 50-meter undercover bench-rest facility with computerised electronic turning targets.

Positioned alongside the business is an immaculate home enjoying countryside views, a unique riverside walk, spacious landscaped gardens, driveway parking facilities with electric front gates with sandstone walls at the entrance and two sides enclosing the property in full. In keeping with the location an orchard has been established. The property has sandstone-built tool store and workshop which have recently been re-roofed and fully wired up with electricity. The attached barn provides a large storage area with power and vehicle access.

A high-speed Wi-Fi network is fitted throughout the property which includes the business, ranges and exteriors. The whole of the site and properties is also covered by extensive security systems.

On a walk down to the river is a stone pathway leading to a barbecue area with seating and further down the brook are other seating arrangements enabling one to embrace nature. To the rear of the house is a courtyard where an old mill wheel has been incorporated as a feature table. On one side is a fully enclosed fitness suite with hot tub, electric sauna, shower, toilet and seating area. The other side has a large conservatory with access both from the house and courtyard.

On entering the house is a cosy reception area with log burner that leads to an office and inner hallway off which is a down stairs toilet, modern country style kitchen and a dining room. The utility room off the kitchen, leads you to the log store and bicycle storage and on to the picturesque garden.  The dining room, with under stair wine storage, has a built-in range feature and boasts original blue limestone flags and flows into a conservatory with an original well covered with armoured glass.
