Burcombe Moor Farm represents a most attractive and versatile commercial Agricultural Smallholding occupying an outstanding rural position and comprising a modern farmhouse (subject to an AOC), an excellent range of adaptable modern farm buildings, two free range poultry rearing units, together with its associated productive pasture land. The farm extends in total to about 76.97 Acres and is offered for sale as a whole.


Burcombe Moor Farm represents a versatile and well equipped agricultural smallholding occupying a superb rural position in unspoilt North Devon countryside. The property is divided into two principle blocks, the main part extending to about 31.5 acres and containing the farmhouse, modern farm buildings and poultry enterprise. Situated off-lying a short distance to the south west is the second block of farm buildings and land, which extends to about 45.4 acres.
The main farmstead is centred upon an attractive modern farmhouse, completed in 2011 subject to an agricultural occupancy condition, affording well proportioned three bedroomed family accommodation and enjoying a delightful setting overlooking the farm buildings and yards. In recent years a successful poultry enterprise has been established, comprising two free range broiler rearing units housing a total of 20,000 birds, currently operating under contract from Hook 2 Sisters Ltd. A further useful range of modern farm buildings are situated upon the off-lying land, with planning permission having also recently been obtained for the erection of two further poultry units (2,000 birds per unit).   
The adaptable farm buildings may be well suited to those prospective purchasers with a variety of agricultural and livestock interests and are complemented by the adjoining productive pasture land. Burcombe Moor Farm extends in total to about 76.97 Acres and is offered for sale as a whole.

Occupying a tucked away and yet readily accessible rural position Burcombe Moor Farm lies within the attractive and gently undulating band of countryside to the south of the Exmoor National Park, between South Molton and Tiverton, within the pretty parish of Rose Ash. Despite its rural position the property enjoys easy access to the neighbouring villages and main routes of communication. Surrounding villages provide thriving local communities whilst the larger centre of South Molton affords a good range of everyday services including shops, restaurants, health care, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling. The A361 North Devon link road provides quick and easy access to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the north west, with Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27) to the south east. Mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
Burcombe Moor Farm is surrounded by picturesque North Devon countryside providing a wealth of recreational activities including walking, horse riding, cycling, fishing on the rivers Mole, Bray and Taw, hunting, shooting and golf courses at High Bullen, Tiverton and Barnstaple. To the north the Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline, whilst to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
