Property Description

A fabulous opportunity to acquire a parcel of amenity/agricultural land measuring circa 0.96 acres set in the heart of the sought after village of Lydford, with road frontage to both School Road and Rowell Cross. The land already has the benefit of a mains water and electricity supply on site as shown in light blue on the site plan connecting to Plot 1, along with two outbuildings for repair/replacement. The property would lend itself to a variety of uses, occassional recreational camping/caravanning being in proximity to the Granite Way cycle path and the river Lyd, with perhaps the possibility for future development potential, subject to any requisite consents, upon which interested parties must make and rely upon their own planning enquiries of Dartmoor National Park/West Devon Borough Council planning departments.


The land is situated in the heart of the highly sought after village of Lydford, boasting a primary school, two public houses, a village shop and two castles, along with the picturesque Lydford Gorge, with further education, recreational and shopping facilities available in the market town of Tavistock circa 7 miles and readily commutable to the A30. Set within Dartmoor National Park Lydford offers excellent access to Dartmoor itself and the surrounding woodlands offering excellent walking, cycling and horse riding facilities.


The Promap shown is for approximate identification purposes and is not to scale. Crown Copyright Reserved. The plan shows highlights the water supply in pale blue leading up to the outbuildings, with the land being sold identified on the plan as Plot 1 and in red.

* Guide Price

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

* Reserve Price

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Buyers Fee

A successful purchaser will also be required to pay a Buyer’s Administration Charge of 1.2% of the purchase price subject to a minimum fee of £1,500 including VAT (unless stated otherwise within the property description in the catalogue) by debit card or bank transfer.

Legal Packs

You are bidding on the basis that you have made all necessary enquiries, particularly in respect of lots the auctioneer has not inspected or had initial sight of tenancy details, and have checked the General and Special Conditions of Sale and are satisfied that you fully understand their content. Please note that some legal packs may contain additional fees (such as the requirement for the seller to pay the vendor's legal fees).
