Two farms for sale top and tail the country

Strutt & Parker is marketing two farms at opposite ends of Britain.

Wallover Barton borders Exmoor National Park in Devon while Milton of Fintray Farm is just eight miles from Aberdeen.

Milton of Fintray (advertised in Farmers Weekly this week) has a successful turf enterprise and a six-bedroom farmhouse with 220 acres and half a mile of trout fishing on the River Don. The guide for the whole is £2.1m but the farm is lotted four ways. Most of the turf business lies on one, 63-acre lot and the vendors would consider selling the turf business wholesale with its equipment.

Meanwhile, the firm’s James Baker is selling Wallover Barton, a 392-acre farm near Bratton Fleming in Devon. There is a Grade 2 listed farmhouse (left) with a pair of let cottages. Livestock buildings are well-equipped with “innovative” covered races and handling facilities. About half of the land is within Exmoor National Park on Wallover Down. The guide for the whole is £2.6m. Mr Baker is also looking for buyers for three parcels of Grade 2 and 3 arable land at Ide, near Exeter.
