Dorset delights on market after 100 years

Coming to the market for the first time in at least 100 years are two Dorset farms.

A substantial four-bedroom agriculturally tied house with far-reaching views to the south is surrounded by 150 acres of arable land, with two modern grain stores, concrete yard and a pair of cottages. It is offered as a whole or in four lots with a guide price of £2.4m. (Savills 01722 426 800)
