The Cornish Farmland Market appears relatively buoyant against national averages, with good quality parcels, of commercial size, located near main roads or with good access, being in strong demand. Indeed our sales of land meeting these criteria are selling as well as they ever have despite political and economic challenges ahead. The prompt speed of sale of these commercial land offerings has also been noted.

The market is soon to be presented with 3 farms being launched by Kivells’ Launceston office this forthcoming season, with three being around the 100 acre bracket, with sizeable houses, near to Launceston and Bodmin. Before this, however, one of the “Jewells in the Crown” of Cornwall’s agricultural heartland now launches, being Helland Barton Farm.

Helland Barton represents a rare and unique commercial agricultural offering for Cornwall. Located on the edge of the quiet, but popular village of Helland, near Bodmin, the farm offers the opportunity to acquire a large acreage in the heart of a prime farming district. The A30 dual carriageway is near, the spine road that runs through the county, offering excellent links by road to Cornwall, Devon and beyond.

Helland Barton offers an incredible 421.55 acres of land, laid out in a ring fence, all centred around a dominant 5 bedroom farmhouse.  The property boasts a range of modern and traditional farm buildings and a pair of let cottages. The size and quality makes this an extremely attractive proposition and one not to be missed.

The detached, 2 storey farmhouse dominates the farmstead, centrally heated and double glazed throughout and offering comfortable living with plenty of character and a walled, south-facing garden.

The land consists of 401.52 acres of prime arable land, laid out in good sized and good shaped fields, with a further 20.02 acres of pretty pasture land. With connection to mains water, good access and a range of uses, the land also takes in exceptional and far reaching panoramic views across Cornwall. Recent cropping has included brassicas and potatoes.

The cottages are both let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies and comprise 2 storey, 3 and 2 bedroom accommodation.

Our Vendor and her family have farmed Helland Barton Farm for many decades, at first as a traditional mixed farm, and more latterly as a commercial arable operation.

Kivells Launceston Farms and Land Agency are delighted to offer Helland Barton Farm, a truly once in a lifetime opportunity, with a guide price of £4,750,000. For more details and to arrange a viewing contact Thomas Rattray today on 01566 776886 or email thomas.rattray@kivells.com.
