The South Wales farmland market has produced three quality offerings this week.
A rare opportunity to buy a significant bare block has surfaced with 310 acres of Grade 3 land at Shirenewton, near Chepstow.
At a guide price of £2.5m as a whole, or in three lots, selling agent David Powell said interest from both investors and farmers is expected in what is “one of the largest bare land sales in the region for some time”.

The majority of the land has been cropped to beans and wheat and is level to gently undulating with easy working fields and good access, but there is also a small area of grassland.
No BPS entitlements are included, and the owners would be willing to continue farming the land under contract. (Powells/Newland Rennie 01600 714 140)
In Camarthenshire, near Haverfordwest, Knock Farm will suit expanding farmers, according to Knight Frank’s James Prewitt.
Its large, modern buildings can house more suckler cattle (about 200 head) than the farm’s 104 acres can stock – and a modern 1,000t grain store is unusual for the region, he added.
The heavy, Grade 3 land produces big grass yields, regularly offering a fourth cut of silage.
Alongside the renovated four-bedroom farmhouse, the farm also has an extended cabin providing worker accommodation.
Offers in excess of £1.4m are being invited. (Knight Frank 01285 659 771)
A Pembrokeshire coastal farm is for sale near Fishguard at a guide price of £1.3m.
About 51 acres of Treathro’s land is covered by a management agreement which expires in 2018, but the remaining 119 acres is used for grazing, silage and arable crops.
The farmyard includes a range of buildings; an assortment of stone, general purpose storage and fodder sheds as well as modern farm buildings which provide livestock housing and machinery storage.
There is also a four-bedroom farmhouse. (Savills 02920 368 930).
