Wow!    I know of about an acre of woodland  for sale about a mile from 
the sea,  across the road from village shop.    The owner wants a claw 
back of 50% of any increase in value from house built above the ground, 
but only a 10% clawback for an undergound earth sheltered house.

There is another larger woody bit further inland, with a spring on the 
land, that owner was looking for some £25,000 for on the same terms.
