Full Details

Cornflower Cottage occupies a quiet, unspoilt position on the outer fringes of Woodford and Shop, indeed a footpath and bridleway a short distance from the property lead directly to Shop. Shop offers every day amenities including a convenience store, primary school and Community Centre, whilst Kilkhampton, which is within a 10 minute drive, offers a much wider range of facilities. The popular seaside town of Bude is within just 20 minutes and the nearest beach, Duckpool Beach, is within 5 miles, where one can also access the stunning South West Coast Path. The property is accessed via a single track highway with very little in the way of passing traffic and enjoys complete privacy.

The Property
Cornflower Cottage currently offers four bedroom accommodation though it may be possible to split the cottage into two smaller, attached dwellings (subject to consent – historic favourable pre-app for this) suitable for residential or holiday letting. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, two bedrooms (one now used as a store), kitchen, and a fabulous vaulted double-height sitting/dining room to the ground floor, with a mezzanine level suitable for office/study, and two further bedrooms to the first floor. Three of the four bedrooms are equipped with en-suite shower rooms. Pipework for underfloor heating to the ground floor is in place but is currently disconnected.

Alongside the cottage are double vehicular gates leading into the adjacent concrete yard which offers private parking and turning space. Beyond the yard are two timber AGRICULTURAL BARNS. Whilst hugely useful in their present condition there may be potential to convert one or both of the barns into residential dwellings (subject to the necessary consents). Each barn has electricity and water connected and the larger of the two is fitted with a utility/w.c. and this barn is steel framed.

The land to be offered for sale with the cottage extends to 32.8 acres (13.27 ha) or thereabouts and is mostly pasture fields arranged into easy to manage enclosures ideal for grazing rotation, with many of the enclosures having timber field shelters. At the southern end of the farm is approximately 5.9 acres of woodland with an abundance of bluebells, leading down to a stream.

Additionally available is the adjacent five/six bedroom farmhouse and approximately 16 acres of land – guide price £850,000.


Property Information
Mains electricity – the supply to the agricultural barns is sub-metered from West Milton Farmhouse (adjacent Lot being offered for sale) but Cornflower Cottage has an independent mains supply. Private water supply – borehole and associated equipment situated within this property but also serving the adjacent West Milton Farmhouse. Septic tank situated in the grounds of West Milton Farmhouse. Necessary easements to be granted if West Milton Farmhouse (Lot 1) and Cornflower Cottage (Lot 2) are sold separately. Oil fired central heating - pipework for underfloor heating to the ground floor is in place but is currently disconnected. None of these services have been tested and therefore no guarantees can be given. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries to the relevant service providers.

The sale will be subject to and with the benefit of all wayleaves, easements and rights of way as may exist. There are no public rights of way crossing any part of the property being offered for sale.

Whilst every care is taken in the preparation of these particulars, their accuracy is not guaranteed and they do not constitute any part of an offer or contract. Any intending purchaser/s must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to the correctness of these particulars.

Proceed through Kilkhampton in a northerly direction along the A39 and take the left hand turning signposted Stursdon Lee and Coombe at the brow of the hill. Continue along this road for approximately half a mile before turning right down the hill (just before the agricultural buildings visible ahead) and continue along this road, through the farmstead where the road bears left, and Cornflower Cottage will be found on the left hand side after a further half a mile.
