Barrow-in-Furness is situated on the southern tip of Cumbria, to the north of Morecambe Bay and only 20 minutes from The Lake District. Barrowﾒs principal road link is the A590, linking it to Ulverston, The Lake District and the M6 motorway.
The town is a sub regional centre with a very well defined catchment population in excess of 100,000 incorporating neighbouring towns such as Dalton, Ulverston and Millom.
Premier Business Park is situated on the A590 Ferry Beach Road in a high profile position adjacent to BAE Systems and Devonshire Dock and immediately south of Channel Side Business Park and Hollywood Retail Park. The A590 is the main arterial route providing direct access in and out of Barrow-in-Furness and also leads to the A5087 Hindpool Road, approximately 500m to the north that travels into Barrow-in-Furness town centre, a 5 minute drive away.
The surrounding area provides a mixture of uses including trade counter, retail warehouse, residential and commercial with BAE Systems operating a number of the buildings and docks in the immediate vicinity. Other surrounding users include Premier Inn, Furness College, Tesco and The Dock Museum.
Premier Business Park provides a modern trade counter property with associated warehousing, offices, car parking and loading area and adjacent development land that has outline planning permission for commercial, motel and holiday let accommodation use.

The showroom is well fitted with plaster painted walls and ceilings and suspended recessed fluorescent defused lighting at ground floor and with suspended ceilings with recessed fluorescent lighting at first floor and UPVC double glazed windows throughout. The first floor benefits from attractive views to Channelside and Walney Island.

The premises benefit from translucent roof lights, sodium downlighting, a side roller shutter entrance (4.25m high x 4.21m wide) and a rear roller shutter (5.12m high x 4.15m wide).
