About This Property

An attractive block of gently undulating productive pasture land enjoying good road and bridleway access benefiting from a useful and adaptable traditional agricultural building.
In all about 10.33 Acres.

NO DOGS to attend with owners - horses now in the fields.

This sale represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire a well situated block of agricultural land occupying a convenient and readily accessible rural position close to the village. The land is principally contained within three manageable enclosures and comprises a gently sloping productive pasture currently utilised for smallholder purposes, including the grazing of livestock, horses and fodder production.
Situated adjacent to the road, beside the entrance to the land, is a small stone and block former Shippon, internal approx. 5.95m x 3.28m. Whilst this building is now in need of some repair, it may afford potential for alternative uses, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent.
The land benefits from gated access, direct from the A39 Blackmoor Gate to Lynmouth road, as well as enjoying gates leading onto a trackway known as Barton Lane, which forms the eastern boundary to the land and which in turn provides links to bridleways and footpaths, with easy access to the open moor and off road riding. Its convenient situation, superb views and aesthetic appeal may make the land suitable for a variety of agricultural, equestrian or other amenity uses. Extending in total to about 10.33 Acres (4.31 Ha) the land is offered for sale as a whole as shown shaded red on the attached identification plan and described within these sale particulars.

The land lies on the western periphery of the Exmoor National Park within its 267 square miles of beautiful protected landscape, occupying an outstanding rural position enjoying an exceptional setting on a south westerly facing hillside with superb views over the surrounding countryside.
The nearby favoured village of Parracombe affords a thriving local community providing a primary school, general store/post office, public house and parish church.  Despite its rural position the land still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with the larger towns of Barnstaple and South Molton providing an extensive range of every day shopping, banking, recreational and educational facilities.  From both of these centres the A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27).  Mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway (London, Paddington approx. 2 hours) with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
The Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline with its popular resorts of Lynton, Lynmouth, Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. Lying to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe. The land is surrounded by picturesque North Devon countryside which provides unsurpassed riding and is renowned for its recreational and sporting opportunities, boasting some of the finest hunting, fishing and shooting in the country.

The land is of freehold tenure with vacant possession available upon completion of the sale.

The land benefits from some natural spring watering, although the reliability of this supply cannot be guaranteed. The land will be sold without any mains services of any kind and prospective purchaser’s should make their own enquires as to the availability of mains water and any other services.
