Better weather sees the launch of multiple farms and land coming to market

The long-awaited arrival of sunshine has launched a veritable campaign of photography for the Stags Cornwall Land and Farm team.

Farm agent and associate partner, Andrew Ranson, has been busy photographing every plot of land coming to the market while the weather holds, something that will no doubt, by the time of reading, have proven to be a wise move. It’s true that despite the odd showery spell, the weather is beginning to warm up and land is starting to dry out ready for market.

Stags’ latest launch, a potential investment/development opportunity, on the edge of Launceston is approximately 18.57 acres of valuable grazing land which has recently been put forward within Cornwall Council's Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment. This will be auctioned on 4 June. This land is the forerunner of Stags main spring sale. A collective auction, currently planned for the 12 June, will see an additional 16 land lots for auction, with further land to follow, including almost 80 acres of woodland.

Mr Ranson comments, “There should be something for everyone with guide prices ranging from £20,000 to £900,000.  As well as two residential farms, one at Bere Ferrers and one near Week St Mary, available by private treaty. Stags have a large range of land lots for auction, from some smaller amenity land lots on the edge of Rosenannon, Wadebridge, Rosevidney, Near Marazion, Crackington Haven and Kelly Bray near Callington, to larger pasture opportunities like the 38.09 acres at Bratton Clovelly, comprised of four large fields bordered by generally stock proof hedges, generous road and stream frontage, set in a convenient edge of village location with a smaller amenity lot offered separately.”

It’s not just land auctions that Stags offer; recently launched by private treaty is the ‘Land at Bridge, St. Columb’; a south facing 3.66-acre meadow, a short cycle or good walk from Mawgan Porth. It is centrally positioned near Newquay airport and the junction of the A39 and the A30, providing an excellent base for visiting many Cornish attractions, such as the infamous harbour town of Padstow with its many eateries only 8.5 miles away.

Another private treaty sale soon to be on the market is the ‘Land opposite Bude GCHQ’, while extending to 39.59 acres in all, the favoured 2-acre lot, is perfect for summer camping, with wonderful sea views that forms part of the Hartland Cornwall Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The quiet cove of Duckpool is an easy walk just down the hill, (easier than the return uphill walk!)

Little Clamoak Farm, Bere Ferrers has just been launched, guided at £825,000. It is a picturesque, privately positioned 26-acre farm, with fabulous views over the River Tamar. Currently grazed by livestock and horses, the land is free draining and generally gently south-facing. The comfortable detached 4-bedroom AOC dormer bungalow overlooks the River Tamar Estuary, also lying within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Whilst Stags are preparing to bring two larger woodland lots to the market and an apple orchard, Mr Ranson reports, “We are unusually slightly lacking in smaller amenity sized woodland lots for this time of year, compared to the pent-up demand that we have for them. At this time of year, I am usually undertaking the enviable job of catching the wild garlic and bluebells in woodland marketing photographs, but less so this year.”
