Dales delight on offer

AN 800 acre stock farm is for sale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park because of retirement.

Guided at in excess of £1.1m for the whole, Northcote Farm, Kilnsey, near Skipton, supports a 100-cow dairy enterprise on the low ground with a flock of 700 breeding ewes on the hill land.

There is also a period farmhouse and another two dwellings, a range of modern farm buildings and some traditional barns.

Nigel Foster, George F White, says: "As well as being a farmers farm, Northcote will appeal to conservationists and business men alike." &#42

Northcote Farm is on the market for the first time in 89 years and is for sale as a whole or in seven lots.
