Pasture farm in Cotswolds AONB

With almost 100 acres of pasture, Millmans Farm is a residential holding in an Environmentally Sensitive Area on the lower south-west slopes of the Cotswold Hills.

Its four-bedroom grade 2 listed house is 16th century and needs modernising but has a cellar and a large loft. There is a good range of traditional stone farm buildings with potential including a 17th century listed dovecote. The more modern farm buildings include a workshop and housing which has been converted for pig production.

The farm is at Southend near Wotton-under-Edge, in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has some grade 2 but mainly grade 3 productive pasture land in a single ring-fenced block behind the farmhouse and buildings, according to selling agent Voyce Pullin.

This is an executor sale and Millmans is being offered as a whole with a guide price of £1.55m. However, lotting may be possible provided that simultaneous sales can be agreed on all parts, said agent Tom Pullin.

Single farm payment entitlements for the farm will be included in the sale, with buyers being required to observe cross-compliance regulations until the end of 2012 to protect the vendors’ claim for this year. There are no land-based environmental schemes in place but the farm is in a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone. (Voyce Pullin 01454 269 486)
