Bare land and new farms on offer in south Wales

A mixed farm near Brecon and a dairy holding near Newport are two of a clutch of farms new to the south Wales market.

Ty Mawr Farm, with 135 acres at St Brides Wentlooge, close to the coast between Newport and Cardiff, is billed as an excellent dairy farm with extensive modern buildings – about 70,000sq ft and a 20/20 herringbone parlour – on productive, level pasture land with good road access.

For sale as a whole or in four lots, it has a guide price of £1.35m, valuing it at around £10,000/acre. There is no dwelling. (Newland Rennie Wilkins 01291 420 388; RG & RB Williams 01989 567 233)

Also at St Brides Wentlooge, Newland Rennie Wilkins is offering 40 acres of bare land in a single block with road frontage with a guide price in excess of £220,000 (£5,500/acre) and further towards Cardiff, at Peterstone Wentlooge, another 84 acres of bare land for a figure in excess of £500,000 (£5,952/acre).

All three sales are by private treaty. Some 40 miles north, Trehenry Farm at Llandefalle, between Hay-on-Wye and Brecon, offers almost 380 acres of productive, gently sloping, mainly south-facing, mixed farmland.

For sale as a whole or in five lots, this property includes a six-bedroom farmhouse with private drive, good modern farm buildings and traditional courtyard.

The farm has been run by three generations of the same progressive farming family, according to Fisher German’s Anthony Mayell. Much of it comprises well-drained, red loam soils, with some 59 acres of broadleaved woodland, which has formed part of a larger farm shoot. “Cattle, sheep, cereals and root crops are equally at home on this easy working land,” said Mr Mayell.

The farm has a guide price of £3.3m, including a separate three-bedroom farmhouse let under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, with a small range of mainly traditional buildings standing in 29 acres. (Fisher German 01905 453 275, Savills 01722 426 810)
