A rare opportunity to acquire a lake in a picturesque setting on the edge of Crafthole village, itself, located just a mile from Whitsand Beach on the South Cornwall coastline. The site is approx. 1.55 hectares made up of tree and shrub land, pathways and accommodates the reservoir of 0.56 hectares.

Further information 
The current capacity of the reservoir, 15 megalitres, falls below the current reservoirs Act threshold of 25 megalitres. Proposed changes to the Act could see the threshold drop to 10 megalitres, which will mean the Crafthole Reservoir is covered by the Act. There is also vegetation on the downstream embankment that needs to be managed and controlled to ensure the structural integrity of the dam. Regular surveillance will need to be carried out to ensure early warning of conditions leading to a collapse. Please refer to the legal pack and guidance notes.
