Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The holiday cottages promote themselves via national letting agents Classic Cottages and Baby Friendly Boltholes and also advertise the property via their own website www.woodlandsmanorfarm.co.uk.

Woodlands Manor Farm is VAT registered and is a successful and profitable business. The gross turnover was £201,324 year ending December 2016.

A strong repeat trade has been built up for the complex due to the high quality accommodation, ability to cater for group bookings and its excellent location on the north Cornwall/Devon border. There is an all year round letting season.

The clients sell the produce from the farm to the holiday letting guests including their home reared lamb and pork and free range eggs.

The present owners let the Farmhouse and currently live in The Lodge. The Farmhouse, The Coach House and The Lodge have residential use and can be let as holiday letting units or occupied by family members. Trading information can be provided to bona fide purchasers.


THE HOLIDAY COTTAGES

The Cottages are predominantly situated around a courtyard, and have been converted to a high specification from a range of farm buildings of stone construction under slate roofs.

Each kitchen has modern fittings with electric cookers, microwave ovens, fridge/freezers and dishwashers (except the Coach House which does not have a dishwasher).

The properties have oil fired central heating (except The Coach House and The Stables which have gas fired underfloor heating).

The Stables and The Manor House have automatic washing machines and The Manor House also has a tumble dryer.
There are woodburning stoves in all of the cottages (except The Coach House and The Stables).


FACILITIES

A key essential in the luxury holiday cottage market, this large heated indoor swimming pool, measuring 36’0 x 16’0, is perfect for keeping guests entertained.

The floor to ceiling windows provide plenty of natural light and maximise the panoramic countryside views. A service shed to the rear houses the boiler and filtration equipment. Close to the swimming pool is a detached Games Room (28’10 x 15’2).

Near Rose Cottage is a timber shed housing the equipment for the second water borehole and the laundry room for guests.

To the rear of Honeysuckle Cottage, within the orchard, is another timber shed housing two oil-fired boilers, one serving Bluebell Cottage and the other Rose and Honeysuckle Cottages. Close by is the oil-storage tank.

THE GARDENS & GROUNDS

There is an impressive driveway approach leading to a car park for guests. There are extensive communal areas which are partly gravelled and partly lawned with a landscaped sitting area in front of the cottages.

Adjoining Rose Cottage is a large lawned garden and orchard for the use of the cottages with a number of fruit trees and a small ornamental pond.

The large gravelled forecourt slopes down to a charming duck pond beside which is a covered storage area including a brick built chicken house, log shed and workshop.


THE LAND

This surrounds the cottage complex and forms a delightful environment for both owners and guests alike. Approximately 15 acres is ancient broadleaf woodland which runs along the valley bottom and is bordered by a stream with a pleasant woodland walk running through it.

The remainder of the land is down to pasture and is either level or on a gentle southerly slope. It is currently used for livestock grazing but would also be ideal for anyone wishing to keep horses.

There are fully plumbed water troughs in each field. In one of the fields just off the drive there is a 44’ x 24’ open-fronted general purpose agricultural and livestock building ideal for lambing and storing hay. The total area amounts to approximately 34 acres (13.9 hectares).
