Attractive, private yet conveniently located diverse farm.

Woolacombe Farm has been in the same family ownership for the last 75 years and provides a rare opportunity to acquire a picturesque farm, centred around an attractive, four bedroom farmhouse with adjoining two bedroom holiday cottage which provides useful income. The cottage, known as The Cobbles, is equally well suited to multi-generational living, staff accommodation or incorporation into the main house. The farmland comprises approximately 77 acres of mainly south facing pasture with part of the land used for equestrian purposes with infrastructure in place, providing further income. There is an extensive range of adaptable modern farm buildings as well an attractive 'L-shaped' range of traditional stone barns which have potential for alternative uses (stp).

Woolacombe Farm is a highly private farm yet fantastically positioned on the south eastern edge of Bere Alston within the Tamar Valley aonb. The west Devon village of Bere Alston lies to the south west of Tavistock, in an area known as the Bere Peninsula between the tidal estuaries of the Rivers Tavy and Tamar. The undulating and picturesque peninsula is renowned for its mild climate with its southerly aspect and stunning rural and waterside views. The area is served by a train station in the village of Bere Alston and Bere Ferres on the Tamar Valley Line to Plymouth, where connections can be made with main line services. Bere Alston has several shops, a doctor’s surgery, primary school and other local amenities. The market town of Tavistock lies approximately 9 miles to the north where there are a selection of schools, specialist shops and supermarkets. The City of Plymouth is easily accessible, just 8 miles south providing a full complement of everyday amenities, including retail, commercial and cultural facilities.

77 Acres

Additional Info
outbuildings: The range of buildings are located conveniently within the farmstead and comprises a range of modern, diverse farm buildings which have been used predominantly for the housing of livestock, fodder and machinery storage and workshops. The buildings offer huge potential and could be well suited to cater for a wide variety of farming enterprises. There is a two storey traditional building constructed of natural stone offering potential for alternative uses subject to the necessary planning consents to produce further streams of income on top of what the farm already has to offer.

The land: The land extends to approximately 77 acres in all and comprises good quality, grade 3 level and gently sloping pasture that is well fenced with water connection, suited ideally to livestock grazing and mowing. Approximately 14 acres of the farm has been used as equestrian paddocks which are now well established with the infrastructure in place providing reliable income.
