It happened!

Sometimes things just work out…

Buying land in Cornwall was never going to be very easy. Especially as ideally we wanted some woodland and a water source along with space for growing. Many places were looked at, dreamed about and a few even viewed and registered interest with the estate agent. But none had everything we wanted, in the right location and for the right price. 4 acres came up for sale in a rural part of Bodmin…. It was lovely apart from the 30%+ gradient. It was useful for nothing other than grazing (ideally mountain goats).

A friends family member had bought some land on the outskirts of Newquay many years ago, and we have been fortunate enough to have been able to use some of it for recreation for many years now. Ashley has spent many nights camping in the woods there with friends and we’ve enjoyed BBQ’s, birthday parties and wonderful summer evenings there. So when the family talked of selling some of it, we had to act. They were so happy that we wanted to buy it!

Savings raided, house remortgaged and Auntie relieved of some of her savings (to be paid back!), and the rest is history! We are now the very proud owners of a field and beautiful piece of woodland, bordered by a stunning piece of the river that flows to Porth beach.
