Land at Sladnor Park up for sale


Do you long for a coastal site to develop your dream business? Well now could be your chance, as a unique coastal development site on the English Riviera is now on the market with Savills.

Extending to an impressive 53.5 acres, Sladnor Park occupies an elevated position overlooking Babbacombe Bay in Maidencombe, just north of Torquay. Having formerly been granted planning permission, this exciting site offers prospective developers acres of potential.

The original Sladnor Manor House commanded a position at the top of the valley, where the adjacent swimming pool and tennis court are still visible. The property offers privacy and seclusion thanks to the natural bowl formation, which slopes from west to east.

The legacy of the old holiday complex lives on to the south of the former Manor House, where eight pairs of semi-detached lodges have remained since their closure in 1988. The majority of the site is undeveloped, consisting of woodland and grassland.

Director of the Savills Development team, Nick Jones, spoke of the potential of the property: “Given the former use of the site and the fact that the Local Planning Authority has previously granted planning permission for a high density retirement village, we believe that Sladnor Park has development potential for a range of uses.”

Sladnor Park is for sale on a private treaty basis. Savills is instructed to seek offers on an unconditional basis (in respect of planning) for the freehold interest.
