Great Cudworthy is a beautiful, productive, well maintained
organic dairy farm. The main residence sits within the centre of
the holding with stunning views across the farm. Approached by a long driveway the traditional property is a wonderful family home providing spacious 5 bedroom accommodation in a protected setting with scope to extend the residential space.
The farm currently operates as a dairy but would be capable of
supporting beef or sheep enterprises. It is currently used for the grazing of livestock and the production of grass forage crops. The farm would also be suitable for equestrian use with a range of stabling.

Great Cudworthy offers itself to various different enterprises with a collection of traditional stone built buildings, courtyards and a impressive collection of modern agricultural buildings. The farm extends to about 326 acres and for the majority comprises level and gently to moderately sloping, productive land utilised for pasture. The balance of land is made up of mature woodland and culm grassland that is high in amenity and conservation value and offers great sporting potential.
For the sporting enthusiast as a whole Great Cudworthy provides a fantastic opportunity to develop some shooting drives, convert traditional buildings to a mixture of uses (STP) and create a small West Devon sporting estate. There are also several ponds across the farm that provide opportunities for sport and recreation.

The Land
The land extends to a productive and attractive run of level
to moderately sloping pasture, divided by well maintained fences and hedge banks, into good sized fields. The pasture fields are stock proof and have access to water via a spring fed bore hole. Whilst much of the land is productive rolling pasture, there is mature deciduous, bluebell woodland, culm grassland, and ponds providing fabulous amenity and sporting appeal.
