WOOLLEY & WALLIS’S Marlborough office is selling a smallholding near Chippenham, north Wilts, complete with 12,000 asparagus crowns, raspberries, and cultivated blackberries. A flock of geese is also available by separate negotiation.

Bowldown Farm includes almost 18 acres of Grade 2 land and is guided at 200,000. This partly reflects its planning consent for a temporary dwelling subject to an agricultural tie. This, said the agents, is normally the first step towards obtaining planning consent for a permanent, if still agriculturally tied, dwelling in open countryside.
