Woodland of approximately 10.83 acres with panoramic views over Dartmoor National Park and frontage to the River Lew. Potential for wild camping. Species such as Douglas Fir, Oak, Spruce, Conifers and broad leaf varieties. Other lots available.

There are a number of forest tracks within the woodland which lead up to the ancient hillfort known as Motte-and-Bailey. From the top of the hill you have panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and towards Dartmoor National Park.

The woodland comprises a mixture of Sitka Spruce, Douglas Fir, Oak and Conifers as well
as broad leaf varieties. The woodland is accessed via an un-made track which can be accessed from Watergate Cross.

At the bottom of the woodland is a water meadow with a river that runs along the boundary, known as the River Lew and is fished for brown trout and grayling. The fishing rights are owned by a local
angling club and could be obtained by separate negotiation or alternatively for a fee you can join the angling club.

Burley wood is located in an elevated position on the edge of Dartmoor National Park close to Lydford which is known for Lydford George (National Trust).

The woodland is easily accessed from the A30 dual carriageway and Okehampton is 8½ miles away.

Private treaty.

The woodland is offered for sale in the various Lots described above with vacant possession available upon completion. The approximate boundary is shown on the enclosed plan for identification purposes only.

We are not aware of any special designations affecting the woodland.

The woodland is accessed by means of a right of way over an un-made track and the woodland has public rights of way including a bridle path.

Potential purchasers are requested to take particular care when inspecting the woodland due to the risks associated with trips and slips over any fallen timber or branches and slippery roots on uneven/potentially wet ground. Viewers are required to wear appropriate footwear for uneven and potentially slippery surfaces.

The sporting rights are in separate ownership.

An EPC is not required as there are no buildings on site.

Strictly by appointment through the Sole Agents, Carter Jonas.

Leave the A30 at Sourton Down and take the A386 signed to Tavistock. At the end of the slip road, turn right and then immediately left.

Follow this road to Bridestowe and just before Bidlake, take a left hand turning just after Stone Farm and Meadow View Caravan & Camping Site. Follow the road for 1 mile to Watergate Cross.

At Watergate Cross, turn right and just after passing over the river; turn right signed to Burley Cottage.

Follow the un-made track for ½ mile and pass Burley Cottage. Just after passing the cottage there is a parking area. Access to the woodland is via foot due to the narrow woodland tracks and the gradient of the site.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
