Someone has to own it by definition. But you might not be able to find them.
You have to get agreement with the OWNER of the land, not someone who has a right of way over it – the permission of person in the house at the end of the lane only matters if they are the actual owner.

If it is owned by the person who sold you the site then provided there is no access, then you get a Right of Way through the shortest way to leave the property.

Easements may be gained by use for 20 years (if I remember correctly). So it should be possible to simply use the lane for the next 20 years and hope that noone tells you to stop. (I wouldn’t recommend that though)

Talk to your solicitor.
