A prime mixed farm is for sale in the sought after area of South Hams, near Totnes, south Devon, following the owner’s retirement.

Higher Dorsley Barton in the south Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has a house with an agricultural occupancy condition, farm buildings and arable and pastureland.

It was run as a dairy farm until the late 1970s when the owner switched to combinable crops, maize, sheep and a South Devon suckler herd.

Buildings include a three-bay barn previously used for cattle housing, a four-bay barn used for overwintering cattle and sheep and a covered concrete area.

The land is undulating and a number of the fields have mains-supplied water troughs, while a natural spring feeds into an underground reservoir.

An ELS scheme runs until July 2015. The farm is for sale at a guide price of £2.39m including SPS entitlements. (Strutt & Parker 01392 215 631)
