Due to retirement, a rare opportunity to purchase a London-based clay shooting ground has arisen.
Rectory Farm Clay Ground is located within four acres of landscaped grounds and is just one mile from Junction 25 of the M25 (Potters Bar/Cockfosters).
The area was once used by the royal hunting parties of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, and is now available on Wednesdays and Sundays plus bank holidays (except Christmas Day and Good Friday).
Established in 1981, the shooting school has benefited from over three decades of development and improvements to meet the needs of all types of shooter, from beginner to seasoned gun. Bookings are made by established members, the local community, Groupon, corporate events and social media.
The location comes with a renewable seven-year lease – incorporating the Landlords and Tenancy acts, this is essentially a perpetual lease with no charge for renewal. This instant turn-key business requires rental payments but no additional rates.
All of the Sporting and DTL facilities are completely covered, providing the ideal environment to shoot, come rain or shine. The pathways between stands have been gravelled or concreted, ensuring customers don’t have to worry about bringing waterproof footwear, and the extensive parking area has capacity of 60 cars or coaches with a tree-lined gravel path to the main shooting ground.
Set in both fields and woodland, the ground features Trap, Skeet and Sporting Layouts with 10 stands and traps (13 including Skeet and Trap). All traps are automatic and either electric or battery-powered.
Rectory Farm has its own private entrance gate for the clay shoot and land, which includes log-style club house, fitted kitchen, seating area for up to 16 people, male/female toilets and storage facilities. The site also has a 12K generator (diesel) and reserve 5K Honda generator (petrol).
Leasehold: £12,500 p/a with no business rates
