Full description

A ring fenced run of approximately 128.07 acres of pasture land, suited to  grazing and out wintering, the land is the residual of a former ancient farmstead and is interspersed with granite lined fields, rocky outcrops at its summit and a stone circle.

The land sits within the Bodmin Moor Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with most of the land being classed as Severely Disadvantaged Area (SDA), with some of the fields being classed as SDA Moorland.

A stretch of land of the eastern side, adjacent to the De Lank River, is subject to the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.

As well as having a good run of fencing throughout the land, there is also a good handling facility. The handling facility is conveniently located at the nearest point to the public highway and allows ease of gathering from the land to this point. There is a sheep handling system on a concrete base, plus a further cattle handling system, which is currently calibrated to handle Highland cattle.

In the centre of the land, the altitude peaks at approximately 260m above sea level and enjoys a panoramic view overlooking the whole of the land, and the surrounding Bodmin Moor area including the summits of Rough Tor and Brown Willy. 

The whole of the eastern boundary is formed by the De Lank River, which also forms the parish boundary between St. Breward and Blisland.

For the avoidance of doubt, the residential dwelling at the former farmstead of Leaze is in third party ownership, whereupon the owners of this residence have a right of way over the land, via the short     entrance drive which connects it to the public highway. 

The land at Leaze is situated in the heart of Bodmin Moor, being between Emblance Downs and Scribble Downs/Shallow Water Common.

Leaze is an ancient farmstead at the end of a no-through road to the east of St. Breward.

St. Breward is a popular village with facilities including a primary school and public house. St. Breward offers convenient outriding and walking across Bodmin Moor.

The A30 is within easy reach, and due to the recent widening of the A30 between Temple and Higher Carblake, the speed at which one can reach Bodmin and Launceston is now most convenient.

Launceston and Bodmin provide a good range of machinery dealerships, feed mills and agricultural  merchants. Launceston also has a cattle abattoir and sheep abattoir nearby.

The nearest livestock market is Hallworthy Stockyard, to the north.

BASIC PAYMENT SCHEME - The land is registered for the claiming of the Basic Payment Scheme and corresponding entitlements will be made available to the purchaser.

The vendor has made the 2017 Basic Payment Scheme claim. 

There shall be no apportionment of the money claimed during any scheme year between the parties.

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP - The land is not subject to any Environmental Stewardship Scheme, but would lend itself to a variety of new schemes that are available, therefore  offering the perfect blank canvas to achieve a further income stream for appropriate management which would suit the land.

SPORTING RIGHTS - The vendor will retain all sporting rights. 

MNIERAL RIGHTS - Mineral rights exist on approximately two thirds of the property, and where mineral rights exist these will be conveyed to the purchaser.
