Castle View Farm provides an excellent opportunity for a range of potential buyers. It was established for stock rearing, with a superb range of buildings and direct road access offering easy of access to the motorway network. However it would appear to offer alternative options, with the excellent quality land being suitable for a wide range of crops and the buildings adaptable for various uses (subject to gaining the necessary consents).

The land is classified as being Grade 2 (Agricultural Land Classification System) meaning that is flexible and productive and in the top 21% for quality in England. It is also some of the best land in Cheshire, being mainly a free-draining medium sandy loam suitable for a wide range of crops, including root crops, and livestock. In recent years it has been used for the rearing of a Pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle and equestrian purposes. The
land is farmed in rotation with grass leys, potatoes and kale. Recent cropping information can be provided on request. There is a second access to the land via a track from Dean Bank.
The housing of the livestock has been provided by two superb, versatile recently constructed buildings. 5 bay steel framed mainly open fronted shed with concrete floor. Corrugated
roof, concrete block walls below space boarding on rear and side elevations. End bay enclosed with an internal partition and a roller shutter door. Approx 30m x 14m. 7 bay steel framed open fronted shed with concrete floor. Corrugated roof, concrete block walls below space boarding on rear and side elevations.
