Approx. 15 acres of pasture and young woodland plantation with an established boarding kennels business and planning permission to build a new four bedroom dwelling, in a secluded location with potential to generate good income
The present owners bought the site in 2003 as bare pastureland and they have gradually developed it ever since, initially by planting several thousand native, broadleaf trees with the aid of a woodland grant, and in 2004 they established a boarding kennels.
Living accommodation is currently provided by an old timber cabin which requires refurbishment to make it habitable although the planning permission for the new dwelling requires it to be permanently removed from the site within one month of the new dwelling being occupied.
Further information relating to the planning permission can be viewed on Torridge District Councils website under application no. 1/0235/2016/FUL and it should be noted that one of the conditions of the planning permission states that the occupation of the mobile home shall be limited to a person solely or mainly working in the existing business, comprising the breeding and training of working dogs and boarding kennels for dogs on Bramblewood Farm, or a widow or widower of such a person and to any resident dependants.
The property lies in a secluded location about two miles from Holsworthy which offers a good range of local shops and amenities, including a large Waitrose supermarket. The popular coastal resort of Bude is close by and wider ranges of shopping facilities are offered in the larger towns of Launceston and Bideford.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
