LMG already runs 38 dealerships across the north of England and Scotland, representing the likes BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and Volvo.

Rayrigg is currently run by managing director David Smith and his brother Robert, who have been involved since the 1950s.

Overall the firm has been in their family for more than a century with the first site, which sold bikes, opened in 1900 by Robert Smith.

The firm has represented Kia since 2004.

The family has decided to sell in order to ‘step back and concentrate on other projects’.

David said: ‘We chose Lloyd Motor Group to take over the business as we are very much in line with their ethos and ethics.

‘Both organisations share family values as one of the foundations of success. We are pleased and trust our staff and customers will be very well looked after.

‘Customers who currently use the Windermere site can speak to Rayrigg Motors directly about this change. Rest assured that this will be a smooth transition.’
