The land is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just 3 miles from the tourist resort of Boscastle. The North Cornish coast with its beautiful walks and surfing beaches is just 2 miles to the north west. The land is gently southwest sloping and enjoys far reaching views over the Cornish countryside, coastal cliffs and the sea. It lies about 180m above sea level and is classified as Grade III on the Agricultural Land Classification maps.


The land comprises a 7.58 acre wild flower meadow, The field has been ploughed in the past and is a broad mix of grasses and wild flowers, which in early summer is carpeted with the small, bright, Yellow Rattle flower. It is available as a whole or in 2 lots:


Lot 1: 3.52 acres (1.42 hectares): Guide £40,000

Lot 2: 4.02 Acres (1.64 hectares): Guide £40,000


Both lots are accessed through a shared access direct off the highway.(The vendor, if required, can help purchasers organise for the gateway to be widened) Lot 2 shall own the gateway, whilst Lot 1 will have a right of access over a 10m x 10m access box, inside the gateway. The land, when divided, will be practical shaped field(s) and apart from the dividing fence, will be surrounded by mature Cornish hedges providing good shade and shelter. The land is likely to appeal to purchasers looking for horse or livestock grazing, or it would be equally suitable for camping or recreational use, subject to any necessary consents. There are a number of recreational uses including siting a caravan or tent that can be carried out for up to 28 days under the Permitted Development Right rules.


At the far side of the field there is a wetter area that has been left as a wildlife margin, running down to a small stream. This offers potential to create a pond (subject to any necessary consents), if desired.


The land is naturally watered from the stream that forms the north western boundary. An overhead electricity line crosses part of Lot 2 that may be suitable for connection. Purchasers must satisfy themselves on this point. (We believe that neighbouring residential properties are on spring fed water supplies).


There are no agricultural subsidy entitlements included within the sale, nor is any of the land entered into any environmental schemes.


To protect the landscape and the neighbouring residential property, there are some restrictions on the use of the land as follows: The land must not be used as a commercial caravan/camp site or solar farm. Large buildings, wind turbines, the storage of un-roadworthy vehicles and scrap, and uses that create excessive noise e.g. Motor bikes will all be restricted. As the land is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, most of these uses would be restricted by the planning authority. For the avoidance of doubt, the erection of stables or 28 day rule personal camping is not restricted.
