Stampede for cow barn particulars
Bold Hay in Lamerton
About 1,000 sets of details have been posted out
A derelict cow barn for sale in west Devon is attracting international interest from potential buyers, even though no one may ever get to live in it.

Bold Hay in Lamerton, which measures 39 feet by 15 feet, is set in 1.45 acres of land in an isolated position near Tavistock and has a guide price of 30,000.

Even though planning officers say permission for residential use is unlikely to be forthcoming, the agents dealing with the sale say about 1,000 set of particulars have already been sent out.

Requests for details of the property have come from as far afield as Holland and Germany.

"We've got through nearly 1,000 sets of details," said Gordon Millar from Stags, who is handling the sale.

"We've just let people turn up here and apparently they have been coming in their droves."

"The majority of the interest has come from the home counties.

"There has been a lot of local interest but I fear they might be priced out."

The property will be sold at public auction in Launceston on 30 September.
