Knight Frank is selling the 267-acre Alrewas Hayes Estate at Alrewas, near Lichfield, Stafford, for £3.15m.

The property is being sold by administrators after the collapse of The Williams Partnership as a result of competition from imported onions, said Knight Frank’s Claire Duthie.

The property is centred around a classic Grade 2 listed, eight-bed Queen Anne farmhouse.

Three traditional estate cottages are also included in the sale and almost 165 acres of sandy loam soil with a barn have been lotted separately at £600,000.

“The strong residential element will attract the country house buyer,” said Miss Duthie.
