Full description

A delightful mature broadleaf woodland set in a secluded position with a network of paths. Copious supply of firewood, rich in flora and fauna, wildlife haven, network of paths and close to Tavistock & Dartmoor. 13.94 Acres In All.

Situation - The woodland is located on a gently sloping easterly / south easterly facing valley side, approximately 2 miles west of Tavistock and Dartmoor National Park. It is almost midway between Gunnislake and Lamerton, on the edge of the hamlet known as Mill Hill. The woodland lies between 100-150m above sea level. The popular Copper Penny Inn at Chipshop, on the B3362 between Gulworthy and Lamerton, lies approximately 1 mile to the west. There are several residential properties close to the edge of the woodland.
 
The nearby historic market town of Tavistock has an excellent range of independent shops, restaurants, boutiques, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries. In addition there are private and secondary schools to A-Level standard including Kelly College and Mounthouse Preparatory School. On the far side of Tavistock, one can enjoy Dartmoor National Park with its extensive leisure and recreational amenities. The A30 can be accessed at Launceston and Okehampton, 12 and 14 miles respectively, which provides a dual carriageway link between the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter.

Description - The property extends to 13.94 acres (5.640 hectares) in all and comprises an attractive broadleaf wood which includes magnificent old Oak, Sycamore, Chestnut and Ash trees, some believed to be over 100 years old. In spring it is carpeted with bluebells, wild garlic and a diverse range of other flora. There is a generous network of paths which enable easy access around the woodland and provide good vantage points to view pheasants, woodpeckers, owls and a host of other bird life or foxes, badgers and deer that also frequent the wood. The whole area is a haven for wildlife and will appeal to buyers with an interest in nature.
 
Families, perhaps looking for a secure area for children to explore and play, are also likely to find this appealing, as well as people just wanting to own their own little piece of attractive Devon countryside, perhaps to enjoy with their dog, whilst also benefitting from an almost endless supply of firewood. A convenient block of woodland like this is also likely to add value to one of the adjoining or nearby dwellings.

Services - There are no mains services connected.

Access - There is an expressed legal right within the deeds for access at all times and for all purposes on foot or with vehicles over the track leading through the neighbouring property to the south known as Artiscombe Leigh.

Tenure And Possession - The land is offered freehold with vacant possession available upon completion.

Grant Schemes - Whilst there may be opportunities to obtain woodland or environmental grants the current owners have not explored this leaving the land without the usual restrictions that can apply with these.

Plans And Boundary Fences - A plan, which is not to be relied upon, is attached to the sales particulars. Purchasers must satisfy themselves from inspection or otherwise as to its accuracy.

Viewing - Viewing of the property is strictly by prior appointment with the vendor's appointed agents, Stags Launceston Office. The neighbours at Artiscombe Leigh have requested that viewers park in their lower gateway whilst viewing. This is directly opposite the entrance to Artiscombe Farm.

Directions - From Tavistock take the A390 east towards Callington. After 2 miles in the small village of Gulworthy, turn right at the roundabout signposted Chipshop, Lamerton and Launceston. Follow this road for 1 mile and take the first right hand turning, signposted Mill Hill. Proceed down the hill for 3/4 mile and the driveway into Artiscombe Leigh will be the first driveway on the left. Please do not park here when viewing, but proceed down the road for a further 80m and park in the lower gateway on the left (opposite Artiscombe Farm entrance). Whilst there is a vehicular access over the track through the grounds of Artiscombe Leigh, when viewing please proceed on foot through the top gateway of Artiscombe Leigh. The woodland will be found approximately 130m along, set back from the road at the top of the track. We recommend you climb over the bank to the left of the gate and join one of the numerous paths running through the wood.

These particulars are a guide only and should not be relied upon for any purpose.
