Sale typeTrade

The land has been farmed under an arable rotation of winter wheat, oilseed rape, spring wheat, peas and linseed along with grass leys. The farm has been well managed over the years under an organic farming system.

The farm includes three residential properties. Meadow View and 88 Brookers Cottage, located adjacent to the farmyard at Brookers Farm. The third property is Court Lodge Flat which is located on the lower ground floor of the office complex at Court Farm. In addition to the residential properties, the substantial farm office accommodation at Court Lodge could be converted to residential use subject to the necessary planning consents. The land has extensive road frontage, which, together with a network of good internal tracks ensures the fields are well connected and easily accessible. Whilst there is no formal shoot in place at present the natural topography and location of woodland would form the basis of a challenging shoot with well presented birds in an extremely attractive setting.

The sale of the land at Court and Brookers Farm offers the chance for farmers and investors alike to purchase a block of productive organic farmland, in an area where such opportunities rarely come to the market. The land is offered for sale with vacant possession upon expiry of the current Farm Business Tenancy.
