Woolley & Wallis have been instructed to sell 9 acres of land at Great Bedwyn near Marlborough which includes about 666m of fishing on the River Dun at a guide price of £85,000.
The land lies in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the very popular village of Great Bedwyn, on the edge of the historic Savernake forest.
The meadow, which extends to 9.17 acres (3.71 ha) is a diverse species-rich wetland habitat with the River Dun running through it. The land attracts a wide variety of flora and fauna as well as snipe and ducks. There is a line of mature Aspen trees at one end of the property and a conservation mix hedgerow planted with crab apple, dogwood, guilder rose, wild privet and blackthorn.
The River Dun is a clean chalk stream which feeds into the River Kennet and has a myriad of fish including trout and grayling. There is approximately 375 metres of double bank fishing and about 291 metres of single bank fishing.
Richard Nocton, Partner with Woolley & Wallis, said “this is a remarkable parcel of land with a diverse conservation and amenity interest which is will appeal to a wide variety of buyers, such as those with an interest in preserving a beautiful piece of land as well as those who are keen on chalk stream fishing.”
