&#8226 EAST-SUSSEX agent Watsons is selling 18 acres of IACS-registered arable land at Ticehurst, overlooking Bewl Water.

Agent Nick Young says the plot, which is split into 12 and six acre parcels, is extremely picturesque and should appeal to an amenity buyer. This reflected in the guide price which works out at £5000/acre.

Pakington Farm, Doverdale, Droitwich, includes a large 20th century dwelling, and 303 acres, suitable for potatoes and sugar beet, are registered for arable aid. Grants are also received under the farm woodland scheme and the asking price is in the region of £1.6m.
