Land for sale at Pear Tree Farm in Willoughby, Warwickshire

Agricultural land for sale in Pear Tree Farm, Warwickshire with permission for an agricultural building suitable for smallholding close to Rugby, Dunchurch, Daventry and the M1 motorway

Moor Lane, Willoughby, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV23 8BU

Why buy land for sale at Pear Tree Farm in Willoughby?

A rare opportunity to own over 33 acres of pasture land for sale with permission to erect a large agricultural storage building near the entrance of the site. This building measures 30m x 15m and totals 450m2 (4,843 sq ft).

Though there is a long-held aim at County and District level to resist new residential development in the open countryside, one of the few exceptions to this rule is the provision of agricultural workers’ dwellings, where it can be clearly demonstrated that such are essential to the needs of a viable agricultural enterprise.

Construction of this agricultural building could possibly lead to permission being granted for a mobile home on the site upon commencement of an agricultural enterprise. Furthermore, subject to the development of a sustainable business in agriculture, permission for a house could possibly be granted after three years.

The land benefits from excellent gated access and extensive road frontage. A small pond can be found on the southern boundary providing a natural water supply. The field is characterised by gently undulating, lush grassland and well defined boundaries of mature hedgerow and trees.

The site enjoys the benefits of the rural countryside, yet has a sense of residential inclusion, being located on the edge of Willoughby. This, combined with superb transport links increases the land’s investment potential.


The site benefits from 572 metres of road frontage onto Moor Lane (a well maintained public highway), where there is a gated access point via a tarmac entrance into the land.

Method of Sale

The land is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole. The freehold is available with vacant possession upon completion.


Permission has been granted to erect an agricultural building for the storage of feed, produce and machinery, measuring 30m x 15m being 5m to the eaves and 7.5m to the ridge.

The total size is to be 450m2 (4,843 sq ft) and it should be constructed of a steel portal frame, concrete block and box profile sheet walls and box profile sheet roof.

The development must be carried out within a period of 5 years (from 28 Jan. 2008).

The land is designated within the Greenbelt and any further development would be subject to planning permission.

Soil Type & Land Classification

The land is classified as Grade 3 (good to moderate) on the agricultural land classification map of England and Wales. The soil type is believed to be a medium heavy loam suitable for grassland and considered ideal for agricultural uses.

Low supply and pent-up demand sees land values rise 3%

Farmland values rose by an average of 3% in England during the first six months of 2020 because of historically low supply and pent-up demand.

The market sentiment at the start of the year was one of optimism following an end to some of the political uncertainty that had been slowing the market. Despite an unsettling few months the appetite to buy land has not been diminished.

Conversations with buyers point to many seeing land as a safe asset class in which to invest at times of uncertainty – a trend seen in the past.
