About This Property

Forming Lot 2 of Venn Farm, this is an outstanding block of productive arable and pasture land with its amenity, conservation and sporting appeal enhanced by several areas of broadleaf and coniferous woodland and stream fed lake. It extends in total to about 117.29 acres.

The land presently forms part of Venn Farm and is offered separately from the main Farmstead which is available by separate negotiation. This is an outstanding block of principally red soil arable and pasture land, interspersed with several areas of mature broadleaf and coniferous plantings which combines with bisecting streams and pond to create not only exceptionally productive agricultural land, but one with considerable amenity, conservation and sporting appeal. It extends in total to about 117.29 acres

Past Farming
This is a traditional mixed arable and livestock holding, although it has also been used for free range egg production and it is understood that a contract with Stonegate may be available to the Purchaser. More recently however, surplus arable land has been let on a Farm Business Tenancy for forage energy production. It is understood that the tenant would be willing to continue this arrangement with the Purchaser. When the present Vendors purchased the property, they embarked on an extensive programme of planting field margins and inaccessible corners with mixed broad leafed and coniferous species. Some 40 years on, these areas are now well established and compliment the historic broad leafed areas to create an exceptionally attractive and diverse landscape. With amenity ponds, streams and naturally rewilded areas, the holding provides a diverse habitat for a wider variety of flora and fauna. Although not currently subject to any agri environmental or similar stewardship schemes, it is a holding that is well placed to take advantage of the future transition from EU based subsidies.

Arable pasture and amenity woodland of c.117.29 acres

This is an outstanding block of arable, pasture and amenity broad leafed woodland which adjoins and compliments the privacy and seclusion of Lot 1. It is available separately from the main residence with good road frontage and access from the south eastern boundary and is not only agriculturally productive, but exudes considerable amenity, conservation and sporting appeal. Situated within the property is an attractive amenity pond. In total, Lot 2 extends to about 117.64 acres, as shaded yellow on the identification plan.

Venn Farm occupies a slightly elevated south facing position with far reaching views across its own land and of the unspoiled countryside beyond, with distant views to Dartmoor. Morchard Bishop is the closest settlement, affording a strong local community with a range of facilities including a general store and mobile post office, Doctor’s surgery and Pharmacy and schooling with an Ofsted rated primary school, together with its Parish Church and popular public house. Crediton which lies to the southeast provides a more comprehensive range of commercial, recreational and educational facilities, with Exeter providing the level of facilities befitting those of a County and regional centre. To the south lies Morchard Road with its Sprinter rail connections providing convenient access to Exeter St David's with good connections to London or alternatively to Barnstaple which lies to the northwest. Tiverton affords similar facilities to those of Crediton, as well as providing access to the M5 (J27). In itself, the property occupies a position with South West England renowned for both the diversity of its countryside and, for the many varied sporting and recreational facilities available either within the immediate locality or further afield. The property is ideally suited for those with all rural interests.
