An historic 2500-acre country estate in Cambridgeshire is being marketed jointly by agents Strutt & Parker and Robinson & Hall, in what is likely to be the biggest block of commercial farmland to hit the market this year.
On the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire borders, the Tetworth Hall Estate is a mixture of let farms and in-hand land, combined with extensive woodland and shooting.
The 22 lots comprising the estate represent a significant opportunity to acquire productive arable soils in the country’s cereals heartland.
In-hand arable land and woodland extends to just over 1800 acres with 674 acres let on three farming tenancies. The estate also features 3 farmhouses and 13 cottages, and an established pheasant shoot. The estate’s in-hand land has been contract-farmed to a high standard by local farmer William Ward.
The sale, by a family trust, follows the death of Lady Crossman, stalwart of the Cambridgeshire and Enfield Chase and the estate lies at the heart of Cambridgeshire hunt country.
