Nick Hansen of agent Bagshaws is selling a 258-acre Staffs dairy farm that he says has already attracted plenty of interest from local farmers.

New Buildings Farm at Admaston, near Rugeley, includes a 200-cow 16:32 herringbone parlour that was only completed in 2005, but now has to be sold following a change in family circumstances.

“I don’t expect it to hang around long – we’ve already sent out over 100 sets of particulars,” said Mr Hansen.

A large five-bedroom period house is included in the 1.7m guide and a further 60 acres might be available for an extra £200,000-£250,000, he said.
