Outstanding Residential Smallholding

June 2023

A superb opportunity to acquire an exceptional agricultural holding beautifully situated within its own productive pasture land is on offer with farming specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

Collacott Farm at Wembworthy, Chulmleigh, North Devon, is on the market at a guide price of £1.6M. 

Richard Webber, who is marketing the farm, said: “It’s a most attractive and beautifully situated rural property package affording considerable residential, smallholder, equestrian and amenity appeal, centred upon a substantial detached farmhouse. Collacott Farm provides lifestyle options in an outstanding rural setting.”

The farmhouse, which is not listed, is believed to date from the 1800s of traditional rendered and slate roofed construction. It provides spacious five bedroomed family accommodation and enjoys wonderful views over its own gardens and the beautiful countryside beyond. 

It is a quintessential residential smallholding, beautifully situated within a gently rolling landscape. Occupying an outstanding position in a peaceful rural area a short distance to the west of the picturesque Taw Valley, the property benefits from a delightful southerly aspect enjoying exceptional privacy and seclusion.

Although private it is not remote and enjoys easy access to surrounding districts and the main A377 for the larger towns of Crediton, South Molton and Barnstaple.

It has an adaptable range of traditional and modern farm buildings, with alternative use potential, beautifully situated within in its own productive pasture land. In all about 66.01 Acres.

The land comprises an excellent block of gently sloping and productive pasture. Divided into a number of convenient enclosures the land has been primarily utilised for the grazing of livestock and fodder production. Lying to the east of the farmstead is a fenced area containing a pretty wildlife pond, with a narrow band of mixed deciduous woodland running along the eastern periphery of the holding.
