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.

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.

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.
