South West sees surge of stock farm sales

Several stock farms have come to the market across Gloucestershire, Devon and Cornwall after a surge of launches in the South West.

A 64-acre North Cornwall organic farm is for sale at a guide price of £850,000. Let to a beef producer, Tremavic, near Newquay, is all down to grass, but more than half of the sloping land is ploughable.

The sellers invested in a large new shed, while two older constructions are also used for agriculture.

Its modern farmhouse was built six years ago with a strong focus on renewable energy. (Humberts 01823 331 234)

Rhude Farm, near Bude, offers a further opportunity to buy a stock farm in north Cornwall. The 104-acre former dairy operation has been converted into a beef suckler enterprise by the retiring sellers.

The farm’s permanent pasture is in a ring-fence around the steading, which hosts a number of cattle sheds, a silage clamp and some storage. It has a guide price of £1.1m as a whole, or in two lots. (Kivells 01409 259 547)

A small Gloucestershire farm with about 50 acres of undulating grazing and mowing ground is for sale near Horsley.

The farm’s timber- and iron-framed sheds are in need of investment to restore them to agricultural use and no BPS entitlements are included.

Sallywood Farm, which includes a seven-bedroom house, has a guide price of £1.3m. (Bruton Knowles 01452 880 000)

A mixed arable and grassland farm near Dawlish in Devon is for sale at a guide price of £1.8m.

Rixdale Farm has about 203 acres and a range of modern farm buildings across two yards. A number of traditional and redundant constructions from the farm’s former dairy business have potential for agricultural use.

The farm is entered into both Entry Level and Higher Level Stewardship agreements that expire in 2018. (Savills 01392 455 722)
