Located to the north of the homestead is a block of land which extends to approximately 26.7 acres (10.80 hectares) incorporated within six fields and can be further identified by reference to the map annexed to these particulars.

The land has access onto the Parish road, is fenced for stock purposes and currently used for the grazing of livestock.

There is also a hardcore lane to the north of the homestead which gives access to OS6741. The land is gently south facing with the exception of OS6234 which falls away to a valley known as
Tremar Coombe. The land is shown on the MAFF (DEFRA) Land Classification Map of England and Wales as being Grade 3 with the exception of Quoit Field. There is a caveat on the
Ministry plan stating that this is not accurate to 50 acres.

There is an important archaeological feature within the most northerly field being Trethevy Quoit and the history outlined below has been extracted from the English Heritage web site.

?Trethevy Quoit is a particularly well preserved sample of a portal dolmen, a type of monument once common in Cornwall and dating to the early or middle part of the Neolithic period around 2500?3500 BC.

It is far from certain that these structures were tombs rather than multi purpose shrines. The presence of the dead is no guarantee of the original usage, as it is shown by Medieval churches; these contain tombs and are surrounded by graves, yet they were built primarily as places where the living could worship.

It may be that in prehistoric times the ancestral dead would consider to be mediators between the community and its gods, and that places like this were an important interface between these two worlds.

These burial monuments of Britain's early farming communities are among the oldest visible monuments to survive to the present day. It is probable that each community once possessed at least one such ?house of the dead'. The time and energy it must have taken to build is an indication of the importance they must have been attached to them.

It consists of five standing stones, mounted by a massive cap stone. The cap stone may have been designed to have been slightly tilted, but now sloped at a much steeper angle that it would have done originally, because of the most westerly of the supporting stones has collapsed and lies within the tomb chamber itself.

Mains water, electricity and drainage is connected to the dwelling house. There is a mains water supply serving the larger block of land being Lot 2, but there is no water within Lot 3 (the Quoit field).

The property is offered Freehold, but the land is currently let under the provisions of the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995 to Mr. W. F. Steed on a one year Farm Business Tenancy which commenced on the 1st March 2016 up to and including 28th February 2017, after which vacant possession will be obtained. The farmhouse, buildings and gardens are vacant.

A view as to any planning potential has been obtained from situ8 planning consultancy which is self explanatory and is included as an enclosure within these particulars.

The land is registered for entitlements relative to the Basic Payment Scheme. If required such entitlements will be transferred to the purchaser(s). Such entitlements will be transferred by Kivells, 7 - 8 Baytree Hill, Liskeard, Cornwall, PL14 4BE.

The plan is based on a Promap attached to these sale particulars. The areas are not guaranteed and intending purchaser(s) must satisfy themselves as to its accuracy. Copies of the RPA map may be inspected at the agents office.

The land is offered for sale, subject to and with the benefit of all matters contained in or referred to in the Property and Charges Register of the Registered Title together with all public or private rights of way, wayleaves, easements and other rights of way which cross the property.

These particulars are issued subject to the property remaining unsold, and whilst believing same to fairly reflect the premises, they are not in anyway warranted and do not form part of any contract of sale, intending purchasers must satisfy themselves in every respect by inspection, investigation and research.

Any purchaser(s) shall be deemed to have full knowledge of all boundaries and neither the vendor, nor the vendors agent will be responsible for defining the boundaries or the ownership thereof. Should any dispute arise as to the boundaries or any points on the particulars or plans or the interpretation of them, the question shall be referred to the vendors agent whose decision acting as expert shall be final.
