The land adjacent to Wooda Lakes enjoys a peaceful, rural position, within the parish of Pancrasweek. It lies half a mile from the River Tamar and the Cornish border and is almost equidistant from Holsworthy and Bude. The land is situated almost next door to the renowned Dunsdon Nature Reserve, claimed to be the single most important example of Culm pasture in England.
Tamar Lakes Water Sports Centre lies 3 miles to the north-west and is popular with walkers, runners, cyclists, families, sailors, bird watchers and anglers.
The popular North Cornwall surfing beaches lie to the west and the rugged North Devon coastline to the north and north-west, offering excellent opportunities to walk, swim, sail, gig row and fish. Dartmoor National Park lies 21 miles to the south-east and again offers excellent walking and outdoor pursuit opportunities.
The market town of Holsworthy, known for its weekly livestock and pannier markets, boasts a Waitrose Supermarket, a wide range of shops, banks, professional services and agricultural suppliers. Nearby, Bradworthy and Bude also offer local amenities and shopping. The A39 is approximately 4 miles away and the A30 dual-carriageway can be joined at Launceston and Okehampton (19 miles and 21 miles respectively).DESCRIPTION
The land is available with the following guide prices:
Lot 1 - 6.23 acres Guide £60,000
Lot 2 - 8.15 acres Guide £60,000
The land lies in a private position set well back from the road and is either level or gently sloping to the south, with both lots having far reaching views over unspoilt countryside. It currently comprises two fields, both accessed from an access box just inside the existing gateway, with a stoned track leading to the main part of Lot 1. Both lots offer the opportunity to create a pond, subject to obtaining any necessary consents and both lots have some frontage along the stream that runs along their southern boundary.
The Bude Aqueduct runs along the western boundary of Lot 1. A bridge over this feeder channel for the Bude Canal links to a towpath/footpath that provides an attractive walk to Lower Tamar Lake to the north. Lot 1 has a small area of woodland adjacent to the Aqueduct.
The land is likely to appeal to a range of purchasers including those looking for a pony paddock or for grazing of some other livestock. It is also likely to appeal to amenity purchasers just wanting to own some countryside within easy reach of the North Cornwall coast. The land has potential for a number of tourism uses or perhaps just for private camping/holidays for the owner and their friends, under the 28 Day Permitted Development Rules (currently 56 days).SERVICES
There are no mains services connected. Mains electricity looks to be available for connection from the overhead line running through Lot 2 and the track, part of Lot 1. Both fields can be naturally watered from the stream. Lot 2 has a right to connect to a sub-metered mains water supply from neighbouring Wooda Lakes. A water supply could also be provided by installing a borehole, erecting a modest building and harvesting the rain water or perhaps by bringing a water bowser to the land.METHOD OF SALE
