A ring fenced farm extending to around 99 acres.
Set in a tranquil corner of North West Gloucestershire, a well-established and highly productive holding extending to approximately 99 acres currently run as a commercial fruit farm. Comprising approximately 64 acres of fruit, 8 acres of woodland and 21 acres of permanent pasture. EPC rating D.
The farm is ring fenced, relatively flat and well
drained. There is bore hole irrigation as well as good access to the orchards and outbuildings. The buildings are all steel framed in construction and clad. The Dutch barn nearest the house has been joined to another steel frame shed and offers a large dry covered area currently being used as workshops, stabling and storage. Away from the house and the immediate yard is a purpose built apple clamp and loading area as well as a secure four bay steel frame portal building with three phase electricity.
The farm has been run as a commercial cider fruit operation with the major proportion of the land planted to a wide range of varieties, including Hastings, Fiona, Michelin, Amanda and Dabinett. A proportion of the fruit is subject to commercial contracts and assignment of these to a new purchaser is discretionary.
The farm is level and well-arranged, ideal for
commercial production. In addition there are approximately 20 acres of permanent pasture and approximately 8 acres of woodland; this provided
excellent amenity land for equestrian or livestock.
The House (Not subject to any ties or restrictions):
Set almost in the centre of the farm, the house enjoys a
peaceful and very private location surrounded by manicured orchards. Brick built in the early 1960’s, the house is relatively modern in its construction, flexible and presented in excellent order.
EPC rating D.
