SITUATION The land is situated between the hamlet of Westlake and the village of Yealmpton in the South Hams area of South Devon.

The nearest village of Ermington is about 2 miles to the east, the South Hams coastline about 5 miles to the south and The A38 dual carriageway expressway, connecting to the M5 motorway and national road network, being about 5 miles to the north.

DESCRIPTION Little Longfield extends to approximately 0.94 acres (0.38 hectares) of gently sloping land, which has in the past been used for mainly agricultural purposes but due to it not having been used for a number of years has become overgrown in places with natural vegetation.

Access to the land may be gained through a vehicular width gateway off the council maintained road on the south boundary. Immediately inside the gateway is a parking/yard area and a small partly built concrete block structure (approximately 10′ x 10′).

The land offers the potential for use as a pony paddock/recreation/amenity area, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The land is quite overgrown with vegetation but also there is some debris left on the land, to include unused wire fencing, the remains of two corrugated iron pig arcs and other debris which will be included in the sale.

WATER It is understood that a spring water supply feeds to a point approximately midway along the western boundary where there was a water trough, as marked by the letters WT.

It is believe that this water trough is now grown into the vegetation, but no guarantees can be given in relation to this water supply.
