Arable and livestock land opportunities

A rare opportunity to buy a productive block of Grade 3 arable in Norfolk has surfaced with the sale of land at Besthorpe.

The 102-acre site is split by a quiet road, south west of Norwich, and is in cereals, spring beans and sugar beet.

Beet accounts for about 43 acres this year, with the vendors reserving the right to lift, store and move this year’s crop until January.

Besthorpe is free from environmental stewardship schemes and includes entitlements. It has a guide price of £900,000 as a whole, or in two lots. (Savills 01603 229229)


A ring-fenced north Shropshire mixed farm offers 125 acres of arable and 46 acres of pasture.

Lee Bridges, near Ellesmere, has an extensive range of brick and modern farm buildings to support combinable crop and livestock enterprise.

Its Grade 3 soils absorb rainwater readily and are easy working.

The farm has a four-bedroom house, four acres of woodland and BPS entitlements available over and above the guide price of £2.3m. (Berrys 01743 271697)


In mid-Wales, a stock farm of 122 acres is for sale at a guide price of £1.1m.

Moydog Uchaf Farm (pictured above), near Welshpool, has traditional barns including loose boxes, a two-bay open-fronted workshop and a two-bay loose housing and storage area. The farm’s modern machinery stores and two dutch barns are also in good condition.

There is also a sheep shed and a multi-purpose cattle shed, a large, seven-bay livestock building and an earth-walled silage pit.

The land is divided between 100 acres of productive pasture and 22 acres of amenity woodland and is currently used for suckler beef and sheep production. (Halls 01938 555552)
