The land lies in a peaceful yet convenient position on the edge of St Columb within easy reach of a number of popular beaches. It is close to Newquay and Newquay Airport, and has good access on to the A39 and the A30. It provides an excellent base with easy access to many Cornish attractions.

The land currently comprises a single 1.61 acre field on the banks of the River Menalhyl, with a stone barn in the NW corner that
measures 12' x 28' approx, (measured from OS plan) . The land is very gently south facing.

The meadow is currently a haven for a range of wildlife. It offers potential perhaps, for 56 Day Camping or other recreational uses (STP) whilst continuing to maintain some of the land for wild flowers, insects, birds and other wildlife. The River provides an ideal area to relax beside or perhaps let children try to catch a fish.

The barn is an open fronted single storey barn in need of repair, but may , offer some potential (STP), for a range of uses. The route of the nearby footpath actually runs at least 20m away from the barn at its closest point, enabling the barn to be quite private. There may also be potential (STP) to erect a stable or a field shelter.

There are no mains services currently connected, although the land is naturally watered. An overhead electricity line crosses the NW corner and Legal Rights are granted to bring mains water from the road under the vendor's retained land to the east.

The purchaser will be responsible, within 4 months of Completion, for clearing and erecting a stockproof fence between Points A - B shown on the attached plan, together with blocking up the two gateways halfway along the eastern boundary of the meadow. Further details can be found within the Legal Pack.

There are no restrictive covenants limiting the use of the property. The Property shares vehicular access rights over the access strip from the north with the towners of the field to the west,; this crosses a small part of this Property in the NW corner. There is also a 6m wide right of access reserved, just inside the gate on the eastern boundary, linking the vendors' retained land. A footpath runs from the highway at Gluvian Bridge (170m to the east) along (and just within) the northern boundary.

The property is sold freehold with vacant possession on completion 6 weeks after the auction, or earlier by agreement. Please note there is an area of unregistered land to the east of the barn and to the west of the gate, that the Vendors have always believed they have owned, and that they have occupied for well in excess of 12 years, but which is not shown within their registered title. A plan of this land and further details can be seen within the legal pack.

The Purchaser shall pay the Vendor and their successors a payment of £40,000, if planning permission for any dwellings on the property is obtained within 21 years from Completion.
