Launcells, Bude


Guide price

40.67 acres of extensively managed organic pasture land with broadleaf woodland and long river frontage, close to good road links and with stunning views.


The land is set back from the road 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 8 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 area is popular with walkers and some of the finest surfing beaches in the south west can be found along the coast.


The land extends to 40.67 acres (16.46 hectares) and lies between 95 m and 145 m above sea level. It comprises 2 large sloping pasture fields on opposite sides of the River Strat valley. Towards the eastern end of the valley, a shallow ford crosses through the river linking the two fields.

Attractive mature broadleaf woodland, which extends to approximately 11.5 acres, nestled along both sides of the river roughly bisects the land.

The perimeter boundaries are generally stock-proof and the fields are mostly surrounded by established Cornish hedges or woodland, offering good shade and shelter.

The diverse mix of extensively grazed pasture and attractive broadleaf woodland, together with a generous stretch of river nestled in a peaceful setting are likely to make this opportunity appealing to those with a conservation or wildlife interest. The land provides a habitat to a wide variety of flora and fauna and is regularly visited by rabbits, deer, foxes and badgers, whilst the calls of buzzards overhead can be heard. The current owners have managed this organically registered land without artificial sprays and chemical fertilisers.

It is likely to appeal to those looking for grazing land for livestock or perhaps to investors looking to own a peaceful part of attractive Cornish countryside, within easy reach of the North Cornish coast.

The land is set back from the highway and accessed over a private access track with access rights granted to the buyer at all times and for all purposes. The adjoining 2 fields within Lot 2 offer a chance to buy land nearby. It has potential (STP) to erect an agricultural building or field shelter.


The land is naturally watered by the stream that runs along the boundary of the two fields, and through the woodland. There are no mains services connected to the property. An overhead electricity line runs along part of the southern boundary. Purchasers must satisfy themselves on the capacity and suitability for connection.


The sporting and mineral rights such as are owned are included within the sale. The Vendors' written consent to shoot across the land must be obtained to avoid damage to the nearby wind turbine, although this consent will not be unreasonably withheld.


The land has been claimed for agricultural subsidies and BPS entitlements can be included within the sale upon request. There are no environmental schemes currently affecting the land although there may be opportunities to claim environmental subsidies.
