Guide price

A highly attractive run of pasture land with good road frontage, two good timber-framed buildings, natural water and excellent views. Very gently sloping with 3 main enclosures and a wildlife area with pond. Total about 8.76 acres.


This attractive block of land lies about a mile to the north of the popular village of Chittlehamholt, accessed off a quiet country lane that passes along the eastern boundary. Umberleigh is about 4 miles to the north west and the local market town of South Molton is about 5 miles to the north east.


Extending to about 8.76 ACRES (3.55 ha) in total, the land comprises three main pasture fields very suitable for mowing or grazing. The majority of the land is very gently sloping with traditional hedge banks and fine views are enjoyed away to the west in particular over surrounding farmland.

In addition to the pasture fields there is a further, smaller enclosure of wildlife / amenity land with a spring fed pond.

There are also two very useful, mainly open-fronted, 4 bay timber-framed BUILDINGS (each 51' x 13'), primarily used as field shelters/storage. There is also permission for a third, similar building in the bottom field.


There are no mains services connected to the land. Natural spring water supply to a pond and stream water.


The land is held freehold.
