North Yorkshire agent Robin Jessop has just launched a number of smallholdings, one of which is being sold to fund its vendor’s purchase of another farm earlier this year.

Local farmer David Jones bought High House Farm at West Harlsey, near Northallerton, via Mr Jessop two years ago but is now selling the four-bed stone house and 14 acres for £700,000-£800,000.

He will be retaining about 200 acres of land.

The money will go towards 217-acre Landmoth Hall at nearby Kirby Sigston – sold by Northallerton Estate Agency with a £1.2m guide – which Mr Jones bought because of its fantastic grain storage facilities, said Mr Jessop.

Mr Jessop is also selling 22-acre Woodhouse Farm at Easby, Great Ayton. Including a five-bed house and planning consent to convert a stone barn, the farm is guided at £850,000.

Low Ellermire Farm at Chop Gate, near Middlesbrough, comes with 27 acres, a three-bed house, a holiday cottage and stable yard and is priced at £600,000.
