Productive Cornish farm offers size and scope

A mainly arable farm near Bodmin in Cornwall offers scope for improvement and development.

Trekee Farm at St Teath lies about five miles from the north Cornwall coast and has more than 234 acres with good access, being only a couple of miles from the A39. The holding has been lotted five ways to attract interest from neighbouring farmers looking to expand.

The traditional four-to-five bedroom farmhouse needs renovation and there is a range of stone and slate barns and a water mill.

“Trekee Farm has already attracted a tremendous amount of interest in just a few days, mostly from local farmer buyers but from some lifestyle buyers too for lot one,” said Jackie Chegwyn of selling agent Kivells.

“It offers a good acreage for the area and decent quality productive arable and pasture land – most of the arable land has been in potatoes this year.”

The guide price of £2.35m for the whole includes Single Payment Scheme entitlements. The first lot includes the farmhouse, outbuildings and two paddocks totalling just over 14 acres with a guide price of £475,000.

Just over 33 acres of arable and pasture land including a useful range of modern and traditional farm buildings make up the second lot – the guide price here is £450,000.

Productive pasture of about 66 acres for £500,000 is included in lot three, while the fourth offers just over 83 acres of arable and pasture land for £635,000.

The final lot, with a guide of £290,000 is a block of 37 acres of arable land. (Kivells 01409 259 547)

For those who do not want to go so far west, there is a 110 acre holding in the hamlet of Charnage between East Knoyle and Mere in Wiltshire.

The Old Dairy has a period five bedroom house with a block of stables, garages and studio. It is on the market as a whole or in two lots with an overall guide price of £2.25m.

The Grade 3 land is all down to grass and lies to the south and east of the house. (Savills 01722 426 815)
