North Cornwall offers well-equipped dairy farm

The rare chance to buy a well-equipped dairy and stock farm close to the north Cornwall coast comes with the launch of Brays Hill Farm in the hamlet of Hobbacott.

The farm’s current owners are downsizing from the 197-acre holding, which is in a mix of grass and arable on Grade 3 medium loam soils.

“This is a good farmer’s farm, with a comfortable character house, good easy working pasture and arable land which is not heavy,” said David Kivell of agent D R Kivell & Partners. “It has an excellent range of buildings.”

The four-bedroom traditional farmhouse has an attached barn with potential for conversion or to extend the house.

There are also extensive modern and traditional buildings, which include a parlour and parlour housing built within the past two or three years, calving block, covered yard, traditional two-storey stone barn, cubicle building for 66 head, a further cubicle building and several good-sized livestock housing buildings.

Further calving boxes, general purpose livestock buildings, a grain silo and silage clamps add to the offering.

Brays Hill Farm is on the market as a whole or in five lots, with an overall guide price of £1.85m.

D R Kivell & Partners has also recently sold a stock farm just 10 miles away – the 190-acre Trewanta Hall Farm near Launceston was on the market with a guide price of £2.2m and went to a farming family. (D R Kivell & Partners 01822 810 810)
