  • Potential for addition caravan park or land

Have you been looking for your next challenge? Would you like to buy an existing business with a potential healthy turn over? This large indoor swimming pool has just come to the market with a loyal following in the Eden Valley. At present this pool opens 6 days a week and provides swimming lessons for the surrounding community, but the current owners self confess with some extra input and some fresh ideas this business opportunity could easily double its current income. Via separate negotiation there is also a caravan club registered caravan site available.



Ainstable is situated in the Heart of the Eden Valley and is ideally positioned for the local community to visit the pool.

The pool

The pool is 6 metres x 12 metres approx. and one depth, 1.3 metres, throughout – making it safer for children of all ages. The pool is easily accessed by nice, wide steps and the pool has a handrail along its entire length. There are 3 we serviced changing rooms with showers. There is a fully service boiler room locked away from the general public.

Office space

Currently set out as a gym there is a large space that would be ideal as a working office or as an additional space to rent out to a small business.


There is a large enclosed picnic garden and an abundance of parking.


This pool has been run for a number of years by the current owners and is very successful. However, the current owners are retiring from the business and currently only open 6 days a week, closing on a Saturday, leaving a vast amount of opportunity to expand upon the days and hours the pool is open. The pool benefits from a bore hole water source taking a large amount of cost away. At present the pool turns over £44,000 (end of last financial year) with a profit just over £16,000. With the addition of an extra day and later hours this business has the potential to earn a vast amount more with some simple alterations.
