Assortment of quality holdings on offer across Britain

A mix of quality farms has recently been launched across Scotland, England and Wales.

The land and property market is in full flow since the relaxation of lockdown restrictions, with demand as high as ever.

The chancellor’s decision to introduce a stamp duty holiday in England and Northern Ireland on the first £500,000 of property sales could encourage further launches, to allow buyers to take advantage of the relief, say agents.
