This sale represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a superb block of productive agricultural land occupying a convenient and readily accessible rural position between South Molton and Chittlehampton.

Accessed via a right of way over the lane leading to Cleave Farm, the main part of the block is divided into two principle enclosures currently sown to high yielding pasture leys. Situated along the northern and western periphery are enclosures of more steeply sloping permanent pasture, running down to a small stream on the boundary, which provides some natural watering. A small former Stock Handling Corral is situated in the north east corner of the first field.
