    The Property

    The Barlings Estate is a diverse farming estate, with a beautiful stone country house and associated ancillary accommodation at its heart. The current owner has, with careful management and investment, developed a unique balance of conservation and farming activity with significant amenity assets.

    The Estate as a whole amounts to over 845 acres and is predominantly high yielding arable land, interspersed with pasture land around The Grange, woodland, lakes and a reservoir.

    The majority of farmland has been farmed under a short-term Farm Business Tenancy, which is due to expire on 29th September 2017. The pasture land has been managed in-hand with some short term grazing agreements. The land extends to 648.93 acres (262.62 hectares) of arable and 41.49 acres (16.79 hectares) of pasture.

    The soils are classified as a mixture of Grade 2 and 3 on The Land Classification Soil Series of England and Wales, being a mixture of free draining lime rich soils and base rich loamy and clayey soils.

    The Estate benefits from a solid road infrastructure throughout, providing excellent access all year round. The land has been used to grow a varying rotation of crops in the past 5 years, including wheat, barley, oilseed rape, beans, sugar beet, potatoes and parsnips. All of the arable land has the benefit of irrigation which allows for a wide range of cropping options.

    The Estate includes 99.83 acres (40.40 hectares) of woodland, comprising a mixture of ancient limewood, (one of three in the area), mature broad leaved woodland and some more recently planted areas through the Woodland Grant Schemes, providing good sporting and amenity and wildlife value.

    The Barlings Estate provides a rare opportunity to run a wild bird
    shoot. There is good population of wild English Partridges and Pheasants, whilst no birds have been released on the Estate for 20 years. The land has been entered into an environmental scheme during this time, and with no shooting taking place, the habitat is excellent for wild birds. With the introduction of predator control and a sportsman's eye, this could quickly become a very special shooting estate. The extensive water resource on the property adds to the attraction for the development of wild bird shooting, including a wide range of duck species.

    Reservoir and Lakes
    The 9-acre reservoir lake which is set in 22 acres of grass and woodland, and provides the water for the farmland irrigation, has been extended in recent years to create a lake which is currently used for leisure purposes, including jet skiing, water skiing, sailing and fishing. There are also several smaller amenity carp lakes within the Estate, totalling approximately nine acres, which provide significant amenity appeal and could potentially be used for fishing or other leisure purposes.
