There is also easy access (1.5 miles) to the A38 trunk road which links the town of Bodmin and the City Port of Plymouth.

The land is available as a whole or in 2 lots as follows:

Lot 1: - 22.51 acres - Guide £130,000

Lot 2: - 2.96 acres - Guide: £40,000

The land is mainly relatively free draining. It currently comprises 3 productive pasture fields with just over 6.2 acres of woodland at the northern end and along the western boundary of the Lot 1, linked to the pasture by a fairly narrow grass strip. The land is classified as Grade 3 on the Agricultural Land Classification Maps. It is bordered by mature Cornish hedges that provides good shade and shelter.

Both lots are likely to have potential to erect a modest agricultural building or stables (subject to obtaining any necessary consents).


Lot 1 comprise 15.92 acres of level and sloping pasture, with 6.58 acres of attractive young deciduous woodland. All the land is suitable for grazing and about half of it could also be arable cropped. It is likely to appeal to local farmers in this area where land is highly sought after, or it may appeal to an investor looking for a diverse land opportunity, perhaps with an interest in the environment and wildlife.


Lot 2 is a smaller and more affordable opportunity that comprises a main meadow with adjoining former drover's track that now forms a very private and sheltered avenue, that would perhaps suit the siting of a modest building or stables (Subject to obtaining any necessary consents). It would also make a lovely private spot for camping.

It is likely to appeal to a range of purchasers including those looking for a pony paddock or for grazing for some other livestock. It is also likely to appeal to amenity purchasers just wanting to own some wonderful Cornish countryside in close proximity to good roads, in a central position in Cornwall not too far from the South Cornish coast. This lot has potential for a number of tourism uses or perhaps just for private camping/ holidays for the owner and their friends, under the (currently 56 Day Permitted Development Rules.


There are currently no mains services connected. Main electricity looks to be available for connection from the overhead line that crosses both lots. A water supply could be provided by bringing the mains supply down the drive, by installing a borehole, or erecting a modest building and collecting the gutter water or perhaps bringing a water bowser to the land.


The property is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in two lots.


There are no BPS entitlements included within the sale. The land has not been claimed under any environmental schemes, but this may be an opportunity for the next owner(s) if desired.


Assuming the land is not sold as a whole, the purchaser of Lot 1 shall be responsible for erecting a fence along the new dividing boundary. The fence shall comprise stock netting with two strands of plain wire above and shall be carried out within either 3 months of completion or prior to stocking the land, whichever is the sooner.


The sporting rights are included with the freehold. The mineral rights such are owned are included.


The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any wayleave agreements along with any public or private rights of way that may affect it. The Ordnance Survey Plan shows no public footpaths or bridleways affect either lot 1, Both lots are linked to the highway by Trago Farm stoned drive, which serves a number of properties. Lot 1 owes the cross hatched area just inside the gateway into the land, with access rights reserved to Lot 2.
