The area has a strong equestrian influence.

This land was sold by Vantage Land prior to planning permission being sought.

The land is situated on the edge of the affluent village of Stokenchurch.

Equestrian & Recreation

The land for sale boasts the unique benefit of being close to a bridleway that leads from Pophleys Farm through Crowell Wood towards Chinnor. Furthermore, the site’s paddock potential can be clearly illustrated by the spacious paddocks on the hill opposite the site.

A large network of bridleways can be found in the local area which is also home to a number of equestrian centres and riding schools offering a wide range of facilities including stabling.

Stokenchurch is located within the Chiltern Hills, a stunning area of countryside with rolling hills and woodland. These beautiful landscapes offer visitors a wealth of attractions to experience. Horse riding is a great way to explore the hills on a network of bridleways and there are plenty of riding centres to choose from.

The Ridgeway lies to the north-west of the site. It is a long distance path, which follows the northern border of the Chilterns for many miles. The western half of the trail is a marvellous route for horse riders and a further 9 mile stretch through The Chilterns can also be ridden west of Princes Risborough.

Land Prices

Pasture land values in the region are 12% higher than the England & Wales average and some of the highest in the country.

The supply of farmland to the market last year was down 16% compared to the previous year, and down 8% compared to the 10-year average. Demand for land remains robust – especially from investors looking for more than a ‘safe’ investment in uncertain times – and this together with the diminishing supply, may help strengthen land values.

RICS Rural Land Market Survey

The latest RICS Rural Land Market Survey reports that land prices increased by 12% over the past year as the growth in demand for farmland continues to outstrip that of supply.

A significant revival in ‘lifestyle’ demand for land is pushing up land prices and supporting expectations for further increases over the course of the next twelve months.

Stokenchurch is a large village and civil parish within the county of Buckinghamshire one of the most affluent parts of the country. It is located just inside the county border with Oxfordshire, six miles west of High Wycombe and 11 miles south of Aylesbury.

Surrounded by peaceful countryside within the Chiltern Hills the village is a popular place to live due to its ease of access to London and Birmingham. Stokenchurch is situated on the main A40 road and has its own junction off the M40, which connects London to Birmingham. This desirable location, superb transport links and recent housing developments have increased the population of Stokenchurch greatly in recent years.

The large town of High Wycombe is nearby and is currently undergoing extensive redevelopment, including the development of the town’s existing shopping centre and the completion of the new Eden shopping centre; one of the largest in the country and a major milestone in the regeneration of the town.

These developments have brought new life to the town and caused an influx of interest, with larger apartment buildings and a new multi-million pound hotel being built in the centre, a new Sainsbury’s store and the redevelopment of the University together with a large student village.

The county town of Aylesbury can be found to the north. The town was one of those chosen for major population growth to house the London overspill. Aylesbury’s population has double in the last 50 years due to new housing developments.

At the same time, the centre of Aylesbury has been redeveloped with new shopping areas, pubs and restaurants. Together with three major industrial centres this ensures the town has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.

Aylesbury’s growth is far from over with several new developments due to take place in the coming years including a major housing development in the north and the £100 million Waterside project, which will create over a thousand new jobs. The population of the Aylesbury Vale district is expected to grow to around 215,000 people by 2026.

If plans to increase the size of the town go ahead, suburban Aylesbury could well meet up with surrounding villages.

The area is popular with commuters as it has excellent road and rail links. The land lies just off the A40, a major trunk road connecting London to Wales and is one of the few remaining routes not to have been superseded by a direct motorway link.

The village is served by the M40 motorway and both the A4010 towards Aylesbury and A404 towards Marlow and Amersham are close by. The latter also connects the M40 to the M4.

The train station at Princes Risborough offers quick and direct travel to Bicester, Aylesbury and London in under an hour.
