About This Property

A most attractive block of level and gently sloping productive pasture and amenity land benefiting from good road frontage and access, enjoying a readily accessible rural position.

The land extends in total to about 35.33 Acres and is offered for sale by private treaty either as a whole or in two lots as follows:-

Lot 1 - Pasture/Amenity Land extending to about 9.23 Acres - Guide Price £85,000

Lot 2 - Pasture Land extending to about 26.10 Acres - Guide Price £210,000

This sale represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a most attractive block of agricultural and amenity land occupying a convenient and readily accessible rural position lying between the sought after villages of Parkham and Woolfardisworthy (Woolsery). The land is currently utilised for fodder production and livestock grazing and divided by traditional hedgebank boundaries into a number of convenient and easily managed enclosures comprising principally level and gently sloping productive grass leys and more traditional permanent pastures. Divided into two parcels, gated access points are available to each lot from the quiet council road which leads to Parkham Ash.
The land may be well suited to fodder production and livestock grazing, although its convenient location, superb views and aesthetic appeal may also make the land suitable for a variety of agricultural, equestrian, conservation or other amenity uses. Extending in total to about 35.33 Acres (14.297 Ha) the land is offered for sale as a whole or in two lots, as shown on the attached identification plan and described within these sale particulars.

The land occupies an outstanding position within west Devon, enjoying superb countryside views. The surrounding gently undulating and unspoilt Devon countryside, affords a predominantly agricultural landscape of mainly pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of wooded valleys.
Despite its peaceful rural location the land is well situated for easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication. The village of Parkham lies about 1 mile to the north east and provides a thriving and very active local community, including a well regarded primary school, popular public house, family butchers, garage, village hall and parish church, whilst the larger North Devon port town of Bideford may be found about 9 miles in the same direction affording a much wider range of shopping, banking, educational and recreational services. From Bideford the A39 affords an easy link to the regional centre of Barnstaple from where the A361 North Devon link road provides access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27). Mainline intercity rail links are available at Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
The land is surrounded by picturesque Devon countryside providing a wealth of recreational activities including walking, horse riding, cycling, fishing on the rivers Torridge and Taw, hunting, shooting and golf courses at Northam, Barnstaple and High Bickington. To the north east and south the National Parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor offer beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline, with popular sandy beaches and coastal villages of Instow, Westward Ho!, Clovelly, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
