Annafield Ltd is a fast-expanding renovation company owned by the Gough brothers. Their largest project is Lazy Otter Meadows, set on the tranquil banks of the River Great Ouse, between Cambridge and Ely. With holiday and residential properties to buy, moorings to rent, and a homely pub to stay in, The Lazy Otter has all you need for a quintessential English break. The money raised will go towards the further renovation of the site, following the success of their previous raise with Crowd2Fund.

Developing quality properties for home and away

Following our success in property development in Cambridgeshire, we ventured into holiday park renovation, and upon purchase of The Lazy Otter Meadows, marina, and pub, became Annafield Ltd. With just under 11 acres of land, The Lazy Otter Complex is steeped in history. The pub and surrounding area was established in the 18th Century, renovated in the 1980s, then bought and refurbished by us in 2007.

We recently executed a three-part plan for total renovation of the grounds, focusing on the development of 14 park homes and 28 leisure lodges for selling. These beautiful homes are fitted to the highest standard with stunning views of the marina and river. For those wishing to moor along our banks, we have 47 permanent moorings, and 5 for visitors, all within a safe, gated environment. Off complex, we are in close proximity to the historic Ely Cathedral, University of Cambridge, and the town of St. Ives. Our on-site pub, which is leased out, offers 4-star rated accommodation, a venue for events, and a delicious variety of dishes served in the restaurant. This success was recognised in 2009 by an Ely Standard Business Award.

Our rating on TripAdvisor averages at 4.5, with the majority of reviews being 'excellent'. We previously raised with Crowd2Fund to help fund the renovation of our lodges, and we've now returned to replicate the success of this again.
