The land lies in unspoilt and attractive countryside (designated an AONB) close to the Cornish border, on the edge of the desirable riverside village of Bere Ferrers. The village is served by a pub and community shop. It is just 5 miles, as the crow flies, to the centre of Plymouth yet close to the many outdoor pursuit opportunities offered by Dartmoor National Park. The wooded banks of the Tamar Valley offer superb walking and riding opportunities, as well as numerous water-based activities. Neighbouring Bere Alston offers a good range of local amenities, including bus connections, Bere Ferrers train station is just 0.7 miles, (Plymouth City Centre 25 mins).

The land enjoys far reaching rural views over the River Tavy and beyond, towards the iconic towers of the Tamar Bridge. It benefits from a field shelter and is well suited to pony grazing. Equally, it could be used for camping under the 28 Day Permitted Development Right Rules.

No services are connected to the property, but it is understood that there is a right to connect to the water supply pipe serving Shutecombe Barn. Rights are reserved to bury a new pipe to connect into this supply if so desired. Purchasers must satisfy themselves on these points.

The property is offered for sale by private treaty.

The land is held freehold and will be sold with vacant possession upon completion.

Access is gained over the highway which then turns into the drive for Shutecombe Farm. Rights are granted "at all times and for all purposes" over any part of the drive that is not Public Highway, subject to contributing a reasonable share towards the maintenance.

The land is sold subject to and with the benefit of any wayleave agreements in respect of electricity or telephone equipment and the property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any public or private rights of way.
