Ideal for Long Term Investment Purposes

The potential: The site in question has consent to develop the site (planning consents 17/01543/Full which is we understand valid until 29th March 2021 and 18/00628)

The site is to be sold as seen and it will be up to any new owner to convert/adapt/build the respective holiday units once completion has taken place.

It is considered that the site has great potential for holiday letting purposes once developed and ultimately an investment opportunity resulting from same (buyers must satisfy themselves as to the potential investment returns that may result from any final development).

Within the land is a lower tier presently housing an agricultural building. This building has consent to be developed into two, three bedroomed semi detached holiday homes.

The upper part of the site (with the best views) will then be where two detached Holiday Villas are to be constructed (similar to those pictured for indicative purposes within this brochure)
