With a resident population of around 32,000 including nearby villages, Bideford is the second largest town in North Devon, and the town has a reputation as a pleasant place to live, work and visit. In recent years Bideford has benefited from lots of investment and development, including the ongoing Atlantic Park retail area and improvements to the historic town centre and quayside, and the current Local Plan allows for a further 4,000 homes plus leisure facilities. Bideford is within 3 miles of some well-known North Devon locations such as Appledore, Westward Ho!, Instow and Northam and only 9 miles from the area’s commercial centre of Barnstaple. It is also within a half-hour’s drive of Exmoor National Park, the beaches around Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton, and the Devon-Cornwall border.


Located on the edge of Bideford at Little America, along the A386 Bideford to Torrington road, the site benefits from extensive road frontage and views over the River Torridge.


Extending to approximately 2 acres, the site is currently overgrown but has planning consent for the ‘Erection of builders contractors depot comprising storage areas, vehicles services bays, workshop, petrol pumps, offices, septic tank, cat and lorry parking facilities’, under planning application number 1/0806/1984.  Although the decision date is the 31st January 1985, previous owners installed main waters and a septic tank subsequently to implement the consent.  The consent always for main car park, lorry parking, fenced compound and workshop / depot of 16,898 sq.ft (1,570 sq.m).  Interested parties are recommended to speak to Torridge District Council to satisfy themselves on the implementation of the consent as the above cannot be relied upon as consent.  There is a stream boundary to one side of the land.


Our clients are inviting offers for Freehold interest.  Copy consent and plans are available from the selling agents.


Interested parties may wish to discuss alternative uses for the site with the Local Authority who are Torridge District Council, Riverbank House, Bideford, North Devon, EX39 2QG, Tel: (01237) 428700.
