The sale of this land represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a most attractive block of productive agricultural and amenity land occupying a convenient and readily accessible position in the picturesque Bray Valley. This land will be immediately recognisable to anyone that has travelled the A399 on their way to Brayford, Exmoor or the north coast beyond. Situated in a predominantly wooded valley the land is bisected in parts by the beautiful meandering river Bray with its tree lined banks and crystal clear water affording considerable wildlife and conservation appeal.
Situated upon the land, on the western periphery adjacent to the Tarka Trail footpath, is a pretty traditional stone and cobb built Linhay with a tiled roof. This building may afford scope for alternative uses subject to acquiring any necessary planning consent. In addition the land also benefits from some single and double bank fishing rights on the river Bray, primarily renowned for its wild brown trout although with the occasional sea trout and salmon taken later in the season.
Benefiting from gated road access points the land comprises predominantly level and productive pasture currently utilised for livestock grazing, although its situation and aesthetic appeal may make it suitable for a variety of agricultural or other amenity uses.
Extending in total to about 30.71 Acres (12.43 Ha) the land is offered for sale as a whole or in up to three lots, as described within these sale particulars.

The property occupies a delightful and prominent rural position nestled in the beautiful Bray Valley lying within undulating countryside close to the western edge of the Exmoor National Park, a predominantly agricultural landscape primarily comprising pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of woodland. Despite its outstanding rural position the land is well situated for easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication.
The A399 provides a quick link to the A361 North Devon Link Road which in turn provides easy access to the larger centres of Barnstaple and Tiverton, as well as the M5 motorway (J27). To the east the Exmoor National Park offers spectacular moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline, whilst to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
