About This Property

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

The land extends in total to about 21.29 Acres and is offered for sale by private treaty either as a whole or in two lots as follows:-

Lot 1 - Pasture Land extending to about 6.61 Acres - Guide Price £55,000

Lot 2 - Pasture/Amenity Land extending to about 14.68 Acres - Guide Price £100,000

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 overlooking the picturesque valley of the River Mole. The land is currently sown to a combination of grass leys and traditional permanent pasture, although some parts have been arable cropped in the past. Divided into two parcels, gated access points are available to each lot from the quiet council road known as Newlands Hill, which leads from the B3226 to Chittlehamholt.
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 21.29 Acres (8.616 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 North Devon, enjoying superb countryside views. The surrounding gently undulating and unspoilt 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, close to nearby pretty and sought after village of Chittlehamholt. The village provides a historic public house, a village hall, community shop and the High Bullen Country House Hotel offering a golf course, swimming pool, gym and excellent leisure facilities.
The nearby B3226 affords an easy link to the market town of South Molton providing a good range of everyday services including shops, banks, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling. From South Molton the A361 North Devon Link Road provides easy access to Barnstaple, Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27). There are rail stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter (Tarka) line at Portsmouth Arms and Kings Nympton, whilst mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway. The A377 provides a link to the cathedral city and county town of Exeter, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
The land is well situated to take advantage of the wealth of recreational activities in the area including horse riding, cycling, fishing on the rivers Mole and Taw, hunting, shooting and further golf courses at High Bickington and Barnstaple. To the north east the Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths, whilst the spectacular North Devon coast with its pretty villages and popular sandy beaches of Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe is only about 45 minutes’ drive away.
