DEVELOPMENT SITE in a QUIET SETTING with pleasant VIEWS, having the benefit of OUTLINE PLANNING CONSENT for RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT of six affordable homes, close to this popular Cornish VILLAGE

SITUATION A development site with the benefit of Outline Planning Permission for provision of six affordable homes, located in the centre of the popular Cornish village of Harrowbarrow, nestling in the heart of the Tamar Valley.



The village of Harrowbarrow is well regarded and supports a thriving community, including the popular Primary School. A wider range of amenities can be found nearby in the market town of Tavistock, Callington and the city of Plymouth which is approximately twelve miles distant.

Callington is an attractive small town situated within easy commuting distance of the city of Plymouth. It has a good range of shopping facilities, including a new Tesco supermarket, and its own primary school and comprehensive schools. Three major banks have branches in the main street and there is also a modern health centre. There is a full range of sporting facilities in the area, including the Country Club of St. Mellion, 3 miles away with its famous golf courses.



Callington is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is a very short distance from the Tamar Valley, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor.

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.



Plymouth has fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.
