A block of 91.07 acres of productive Grade 2/3 arable land with a farm building, located in an accessible and strategically central position within Cornwall.


A productive block of Grade 2/3 arable land with a farm building, located in an accessible and strategically central position within Cornwall.


The land is located to the north of the city of Truro, adjacent to the B3284 as it runs between the A30 and Truro. Accessed from numerous entrances from both the B3284 and an additional public highway that runs through the middle of the land, the agricultural building is positioned adjacent to an entrance onto the public highway.


The land consists of a commercial block of bare agricultural land of a high quality, being classed as Grade 2 and Grade 3 on the Agricultural Land Classification map. According to the Cranfield University Soilscapes database the soil is predominantly classified as freely draining slightly acidic loamy soils, usually associated with arable and grassland.

7 large fields encompass the entire holding, which consists of level, productive farmland that gently slopes northwards into the valley. Occupied and managed to a high standard the land is currently in winter and spring arable crops but has recently been used for cauliflower and grass production, a cropping schedule can be provided by the agent on request. A strip of land forming part of the current cultivated area along the northern woodland boundary is being retained as a buffer strip for environmental purposes. All but one field
has its own independent road access in addition to inter field access gateways. Access to field 0677 via the gateway in the far north, opposite the entrance to the residential dwellings and currently closed off, will not be granted.

The individual lots can be described as

Lot 1 – 78.99 acres of level arable land
situated in 6 fields.

Lot 2 – 12.09 acres of level arable land
in one field along with an agricultural
building, with two roadside accessways
including one to the buildings area.


A timber frame agricultural building in poor condition is positioned adjacent to the minor country road that runs through the property. Positioned on the edge of a 12.09 acre field (Lot 2) with land on three sides, the building has its own access and is partially shielded from the road by a wide verge with mature trees and vegetation. Consisting of a 18m x 6m timber framed building in need of repair or replacement, with a concrete floor and associated adjacent block buildings in a dilapidated condition, the entire building area measures approximately 18m x 18m.


The property is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in 2 lots.


The freehold of the property is offered for sale, all the land being subject to one of two cropping licences due to expire on either 28th September 2022 and 30th November 2022, with a combined rent of approximately £16,390 per crop being paid for the land being sold. Further details can be provided by the agent. The vendors will retain all payments due if completion takes place prior to the end of the cropping licences.


The sale includes the Basic Payment Scheme entitlements. These are currently held by the vendor and will be transferred to the buyer on completion. The 2022 payment will be retained in full by the vendor.


No services are connected to the land. However, due to the proximity of roads and neighbouring residential properties, it is expected that services could be connected relatively easily. Buyers are to make their own enquiries.

If the lots are sold separately, Lot 2 will benefit from a water pipe laid underground from the lot boundary to the water main that passes under Lot 1 and an easement will be granted to allow an independent mains water connection to be made by the buyer to serve Lot 2.


No environmental schemes are present
on the land.


A Site of Special Scientific Interest and County Wildlife Site are located to the north and north-west of the property, the retained land forming a buffer strip between the property and the designated areas.


Following clearance of crops and expiry of the cropping licences early entry may be available on exchange of contracts.


A cropping schedule is available from the agent on request.


A public right of way runs over Field 0677 in Lot 1, between the B3284 and the minor public highway, along the boundary with Lot 2.

A water main runs over Field 0677 in Lot 1. The property is to be sold subject to, or with the benefit of, all Wayleaves, Easements, Quasi Easements and Restrictions whether mentioned in these particulars or not.


Not payable.


Mineral rights are excluded, sporting rights are included.

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.
