Walland Farm & Cottages have been in the same ownership since 2007 and currently they do not let any of the cottages or apartments for holidays. Previously they have let The Barn and 2 Apartments on a limited season as a holiday letting business and had a gross turnover in the region of £31,876 in the 2015/16 season.

Currently the barn and the first floor 1 bedroom apartment have the potential to be occupied separately or by family members if required.

The property is ideally situated for tourism due to its location being near Clovelly, Hartland Point and the picturesque harbour town of Bideford.

At the bottom of the site is a scalped yard currently used for caravan storage along with a workshop/industrial unit which was built in 2016 where they carry out caravan repairs and trade as Hill Top Caravans which provides additional income revenue for the property.

The yard is currently accessed off the main driveway but there is planning permission to provide a new entrance over the bottom paddock. Planning Ref: 1/0738/2018/FUL.
The commercial yard has an industrial unit and has the potential to be converted into a leisure complex to include an indoor swimming pool/gym and has enough space to provide a function room.

Alternatively, the property could be converted into an additional holiday letting cottage and due to its size would be a sleeps 12 unit.

The paddock and the woodland area is ideally suited for a campsite or a glamping business due to its location being next to the North Devon coastline. Additionally, the property would make an ideal venue for weddings and functions due to its picturesque nature and sea views.
Previous trading information can be provided to bona fide purchasers.
