Cumbria stock and arable farm for sale

The Knells Farm, a 70ha (172-acre) mixed stock rearing and cropping farm near Houghton, Carlisle, is well suited to new starters or those looking to expand.

It also offers good investment and development opportunities, says agent H&H Bowe.

All fields on the farm are well fenced and have excellent access, says the firm’s Andy Dyer. “Several fields have been reseeded and limed within the last four years.”

The non-LFA holding is for sale as a whole, guided at £1.5m, or in two lots. The first includes a six-bedroom farmhouse and farm buildings, a new cattle-handling facility and 94 acres. The remaining 74 acres plus handling pens make up the second lot (H&H Bowe 01228 406260).
