A productive block of 35.11 acres of free draining, predominantly arable land. Two practical sized fields, one bordered by houses, river & road frontage, close to the A39 Atlantic Highway, services connected or to hand, long term development potential (STP).


The land lies in attractive rolling Cornish countryside with distant sea views on the edge of this well serviced village with dwellings bordering one of the two fields. The village has a good primary school, as assessed by OFSTED.


The resorts of Bude and Widemouth Bay on the Cornish coast are 2.5 and 3 miles respectively. There is a choice of sandy beaches and some magnificent cliff walks along the south west coastal path. There is a comprehensive range of sporting, shopping, education, health and leisure amenities in nearby Bude and Holsworthy. Access to the A30 dual carriageway at Launceston is 16 miles to the south west. This provides convenient access to the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter and the National motorway network at Exeter.


The land is classified as Grade 2 and Grade 3 and has frontage to the river to the south. The land lies approximately 20 metres above sea level.




The land extends to approximately 35.11 acres and comprises two practical shaped and sized fields. One has generous road frontage, whilst the other is accessed via a short lane. The 22.05 acre field nearest to Helebridge is down to pasture but could equally be ploughed. The other field is currently growing maize. The land is gently south facing.


The land is likely to suit an existing farmer looking to increase his acreage with some highly productive land, or could equally suit an investor perhaps looking to take advantage of the favourable capital taxation treatment of the ownership of farmland.


Land such as this on the edge of a well serviced village, with good transport links and adjoining existing residential properties, could be seen to have some medium or long term development potential subject to obtaining any necessary planning permission. In the short term there is likely to be potential to erect stables or modest farm buildings, again subject to obtaining any necessary planning permission
