Hele Valley Woodland (lot 1) extends to approximately 16.24 acres in total and comprises an attractive parcel of young broadleaf woodland, a dedicated parking area, as well as a small parcel of land situated immediately north of the parking area. Throughout the woodland are several well-established paths and walking routes. The main access to the woodland is from the eastern end, directly from Pinch Hill via an established gateway which in turn leads to the hardcore parking area. Lot 1 also benefits from additional access from the western boundary.

The woodland is part of the Hele Valley Trail and was established with the help and support of a number of local organisations and government organisations, as noted on various signposts and information boards which are located around the site.

Lot 2 measures approximately 9.21 acres and consists of two level riverside pasture fields as well as a small copse of mature poplar trees to the south-west. Lot 2 shares the access from the eastern end of lot 1 over the parking area.

The land is situated on the outskirts of the attractive village of Marhamchurch and lies approximately 1.5 miles south of the seaside town of Bude which offers a range of amenities. The land could be used as a base from which to explore all the North Cornish Coast has to offer, including its beaches, coastal walks and trails which enable easy access to the National Cycle Network. The A39 ‘Atlantic Highway’ is less than half a mile away and provides a great access link south leading further down into Cornwall and north leading out of Cornwall and into Devon.

The property is offered for sale by private treaty.

Freehold with vacant possession upon completion.

No entitlements are included with the sale.

Both Hele Valley Woodland (lot 1) as well as the Poplar copse which forms part of lot 2 were established under a Farm Woodland Premium Scheme (FWPS) agreement. The incoming purchaser agrees to comply with the obligations of this agreement and maintain the woodland in accordance with the terms of the FWPS contract for the remaining period until the end of 2033. Further details are available from the agents upon request.

No services are currently connected to the land, although given its proximity to residential properties and the public highway; it is likely that services could be connected in the future. Interested parties should satisfy themselves regarding this.

A public footpath runs from north to south over a section of lot 1 as shown on the definitive right of way map. The current vendor will retain an easement for a water meter and pipe that runs under the woodland and serves further land that they will be retaining. Lot 2 will benefit from a right of vehicular access over the parking area included within lot 1 to the bridge which leads into lot 2.

Interested parties are requested to take particular care when inspecting the land. Potential purchasers should wear supportive footwear for viewings and are advised to be conscious of potentially uneven and slippery surfaces.

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.
