People with an interest in coarse fishing could hook themselves a bargain this week as a plot of land with its own fishing lakes goes up for auction.
The unusual lot, which offers a stretch of natural scrub land and fish stocked lakes, is being sold at auction with a guide price of £15,000.
The lakes, which are stocked with a variety of freshwater fish, are just a short cast from the A465 Heads of the Valley trunk road at Waun-Y-Pound Road near Ebbw Vale .
The lot is on the market with Paul Fosh Auctions and is due to go under the hammer on Friday.
Sean Roper, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “This is a rare opportunity for someone, perhaps an angler or coarse fisherman, to hook a substantial plot of land complete with fishing lakes. The lakes benefit from fishing rights which have been granted.
“Anyone with an interest in coarse fishing really ought to have a look at this really remarkable property as you don’t want to end up sounding like the fisherman telling people about the one that got away!
“The site is located to the north of the town of Ebbw Vale and to the west of the Morrisons supermarket and very close to the arterial A465 Heads of the Valleys road and to the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park.
“The undeveloped land may have scope for some form of future development either as residential, commercial or for tourism perhaps as some kind of activity centre all subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
“There is a fishing agreement in place with a current rent of £1,000 a year with a stipulation to protect and preserve fishing stock in the lakes.”
The land and lakes at Waun-Y-Pound, near Ebbw Vale, is included in a catalogue of some 60 others properties which go up for sale this week.
The Paul Fosh Auction sale will be held at 5pm on Friday, June 17, at The Park Inn Hotel in Llanedeyrn, Cardiff.
