Property description

Plot of land with stunning views over fields and a lake for sale with planning permission for a 2 bedroom holiday home. Approx 1/2 acre in secluded and private location. Fully serviced and permitted access to the fishing lake. Wonderful opportunity to buy your own piece of Devon.

A hugely exciting opportunity that doesn’t come around very often, this is the chance to buy a piece of land of approx. 1/2 acre in a beautiful area of North Devon with planning permission to build a two-bedroom holiday home at Blagdon Water.

Positioned in an elevated location with a backdrop of mature trees and tucked away at the top of a field High & Dry offers complete privacy and seclusion. The site overlooks the pretty 3 acre fishing lake and surrounding wetland that provides a superb habitat for a diverse selection of wildlife and forms the centre piece of this stunning environmental site. The owners and guests will have permitted access to the fishing lake which is well stocked with rainbow trout

High & Dry forms part of Blagdon Water that comprises 35 acres of an environmental site that is dedicated to providing a natural habitat in which the local wildlife is free to flourish without having to compete with the needs of modern agriculture.

Blagdon Water is located in the heart of the North Devon countryside, or as it is known locally, Ruby Country. Ruby Country is ‘the land between the moors’ bordered to the east by Exmoor, the south by Dartmoor and to the west by Bodmin Moor. To the north lies the Atlantic coast in all its splendour and places of interest. North West Devon is considered to be one of the most unspoilt rural environments in England.

Located on the border of Devon & Cornwall and only twenty minutes’ drive to Dartmoor or the Atlantic coast, Blagdon Water is a great base from which to enjoy the best the Southwest has to offer and would make a perfect second home or holiday home investment.

Follow the A30 towards Okehampton. Turn right and follow signs to the A3079. Continue along this road to A3072. Turn left direction Holsworthy and Bude. After a short distance turn right to Cookbury and Thornbury. In just over 0.5 m Blagdon Water will be on your left.


Agents Note:
The house when built will be subject to a holiday restriction which states that it can never become a primary residence but can be occupied all the year round by holiday makers.

We have received a quote from a local builder for £100,000 for the build. Details on request.
