The four-acre site at Badwell Ash, about 12 miles from Bury St Edmunds, is being sold by Fenn Wright.

There are four hand-crafted Scandinavian style lodges, alongside a series of fishing lakes which are well-stocked with large carp, tench, roach, rudd, perch and bream and are also a haven for wildlife.

Alongside the holiday business there is owner accommodation, Mill Cottage, a recently-renovated 17th century, part-timber framed home.

Fenn Wright said this was a tranquil setting.

Mill Cottage also has bi-fold doors from the kitchen opening on to a raised decking area, with views over Kingfisher Lake.

Tom Good, at Fenn Wright, said: "This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a luxurious lifestyle business. Although the lakes only opened in 2006, they have the appearance of being considerably more mature, having been abundantly planted with reeds, wild flowers, shrubs and trees.

"Badwell Ash Lodges began trading 13 years ago and quickly went on to establish itself as a profitable business with a high level of occupancy, around 70%, a high proportion of which is repeat business. Many guests return year after year, not only for the peace and tranquillity, but also for the variety of the fishing on offer."
