A quarter-acre woodland plot above a stretch of idyllic British coastline is on the market for £40,000 – but prospective buyers should invest in a tent, because building on the land is barred.

Current owners of the ‘Night Garden’, near the popular resort of St Ives, Cornwall, have used it for around 10 years to set up camp with sea views in idyllic Hain Walk, where land is in such high demand that a parking space can sell for as much as £55,000. 

Measuring 3,340sqft the woodland, made up of willow, redwood and oaks, is separated from the public coastal footpath by a green picket fence.

The property is so unique it had two offers made on it within 10 minutes of being listed for sale online.

It’s on the market with Millerson estate agents in Hayle, Cornwall, and is half a mile from holiday hotspot Porthminster Beach, St Ives.

Sales business development manager at Millerson, Paul Le Bas, said: ‘We sold the land to the current owners 10 or 11 years ago.

‘Other than that, in my 20 years as an estate agent its the first plot of its kind that I’ve seen. It’s very unusual.

‘The current owners have been using it as a garden and somewhere to camp.

‘It will be good for people who are wanting to own their piece of Cornish heaven. It’s above the beach, it has stunning sea views.

‘We’ve had a couple of offers on it already, and it’s only been online about 10 minutes.

He added: 'No planning would be granted on this plot, but I don't see there would be a problem with having a shepherd's hut, a tent or a tree house - it could be used as your own land'

‘It might also suit people in the local area looking to add to their gardens, as it is surrounded by properties.’

St Ives is popular with wealthy holidaymakers for its beaches, restaurants and Tate art gallery, but two years ago 80 per cent of residents voted to ban the selling of new builds as second homes, instead reserving them for people intending to live there full time.
