An incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and historic piece of Bodmin Moor that is particularly steeped in legend, by virtue of having Daphne du Maurier’s smugglers haunt, Jamaica Inn at Bolventor a short distance to the east and the hamlet of Temple even nearer to the west, where the existing church built in the 1880s is a resurrection of that which served the Knights Templar community in the 1200s.
This essentially grazing land extends to approximately 47 hectares (116 acres) with signs of centuries past farming use including the remains of a long abandoned ancient settlement known as Black Tor reputed to have comprised dozens of huts and enclosures of various sizes with numerous upright stones still visible. There are also signs of more modern agricultural practices including a large farm building located at the western extremity.
Interest is anticipated not only from those looking to acquire a major portion of the County’s countryside, maybe for ordinary amenity and recreational purposes but, particularly, from those who will treasure the ability to be present when the sun goes down and indeed when the sun rises over such an important and atmospheric place.
Auctioneer’s Note 1
The land forms part of Register Unit CL158 over the whole of which there are assorted Commoners Rights predominantly the grazing of cattle, sheep and horses in various numbers. Please refer to the legal documentation to confirm details.
