Launcells, Bude


Guide price

4.18 acres of pasture land in a peaceful position with road frontage, close to North Cornish Coast. Suitable for grazing or camping.


The land lies in peaceful and attractive undulating countryside close to the rugged North Cornish Coast and enjoys far reaching views. The popular tourist resort of Bude is just over 4 miles away and the market town of Holsworthy (which has a thriving livestock market) is located 7.9 miles away. Both towns enjoy a comprehensive range of sporting, shopping, education, health and leisure amenities. The land lies just over 1 mile from the A39 and is just 20 miles from the A30 Lifton Junction. This provides convenient access to the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter and the National motorway network at Exeter.


The land comprises 4.18 acres (1.69 hectares) of pasture with road frontage and fine views over unspoilt Cornish countryside.

Parts of the land are relatively level and the remainder slopes down towards the eastern boundary. The southern and eastern boundaries are good stockproof Cornish hedges, providing good shade and shelter. There will be a requirement for the purchaser of Lot 3 to erect a new stock fence along the western boundary. The current owners have managed this organically registered land without artificial sprays and chemical fertilizers. Many of the rushes on the lower parts of the land are a result of the extensive management of the land. If desired, these could largely be controlled by more intensive farming.

The land is likely to appeal to purchasers looking for horse or livestock grazing or perhaps tree planting. It would be equally suitable for camping or recreational uses, subject to any necessary consents. There are a number of recreational uses including siting a caravan or tent that can be carried out for up to 28 days under the Permitted Development Right rules.


The land has potential (subject to obtaining any necessary consents) to erect stables, a field shelter or modest agricultural barn. Purchaser must satisfy themselves on this point.


Additional adjoining land may be available by separate negotiation.


The purchaser, within 8 weeks of completion, or before stocking the land, which ever is earlier, shall erect a wire stock fence along the new western boundary, and around a 10m x 10m access box just inside the gateway (as shown shaded brown on the attached plan). They shall install two 12' gates, one leading into Lot 3 and the other into the retained land.


The land is accessed through a shared access direct off the lane that runs between Rhude Cross and Stratton, Poughill and the A39. The Purchaser will be granted access at all times and for all purposes over a 10m x 10m access box, just inside the gateway (as shown shaded brown on the attached plan).


There are no mains services connected to the property. If permission is granted to erect any buildings, it may be possible to harvest sufficient rain water. An overhead electricity supply crosses the land. Purchasers must satisfy themselves on the capacity and suitability for connection of ay services.
