The sale of this land represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire an excellent large block of productive agricultural land occupying a convenient and readily accessible position lying between the villages of Lynton and Parracombe within the Exmoor National Park.
Enjoying extensive road frontage and access,, the land comprises a superb block of level and gently sloping pasture currently utilised predominately for livestock grazing and fodder production. Contained within the land is a useful range of farm buildings which may now lend themselves for replacement with a more modern arrangement, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent.
The land is divided into a number of good-sized and convenient enclosures enjoying outstanding views towards the north coast and over the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Exmoor National Park. Extending in total to about 245.59 Acres (99.39 Ha) the land is offered for sale as a whole or in two lots, as described in these sale particulars.

The land occupies a delightful and readily accessible position adjacent to the A39, equidistant between the Exmoor coastal town of Lynton and the pretty village of Parracombe. Despite its attractive rural position the land still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with the larger towns of Barnstaple and South Molton providing an extensive range of every day shopping, banking, recreational and educational facilities. From both of these towns the A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27). Mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway (London, Paddington approx. 2 hours) with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
