A Brace of Cumbrian Farms for Auction

H&H Land & Estates this week launch to the market two notable north Cumbrian livestock farms to be sold by Public Auction. These are the 253 acre East Farm near Wigton, and the 82 acre Fowlpool Farm near Heads Nook.

Both farms are being sold as a whole or in lots. East Farm has an overall guide price of £2,650,000 , and Fowlpool is being sold with an overall guide price of £990,000. Both farms will be sold by public auction on Wednesday 27th April in Ring 1, Borderway Mart, Carlisle.

Located on the fringe of the village of Blennerhasset, the 253-acre East Farm, is a ringfenced livestock farm, with a large, traditional, four bedroom farmhouse, and a range of modern and traditional agricultural buildings. This is in addition to a plot of land right with stone barn on the edge of the village of Blennerhasset which could be suitable for development, subject to the relevant planning permissions.

East Farm, is a characteristic farm, offering a diverse range of opportunities. The land, which has the farmhouse and outbuilding as its central focus, is excellent quality, ringfenced grazing and mowing land as well as some good arable cropping land. All is in good heart with well-maintained boundaries. The buildings are a range of stone and steel buildings, and include loose housing, grain stores, cubicle shed, lambing shed and several smaller barns and stores.

The house is a large four-bedroom, stone-built farmhouse located in the centre of the farm, surrounded by an extensive garden with stone wall boundaries.

Viewings for East Farm are strictly by appointment, and three days have been scheduled for the viewing of the farmhouse and steading, to take place on Friday 18th March, Wednesday 23rd March, and Friday 1st April.

Commenting on the property Tracey Jackson said: “East Farm is a sizable farm, presented in good order, which offers plenty of potential.”

Fowlpool Farm, near Heads Nook, Brampton, is an 82-acre, livestock farm with a three bedroom, farmhouse and includes a range of traditional stone buildings, which offer great development potential subject to the relevant consents. The available land is primarily good quality pasture and meadow land with some rough grazing and the buildings are currently suitable for stock and crop storages.

Commenting on this property Thomas Armstrong said “Fowlpool Farm is in a great location, just 8 miles south of Brampton, and would provide the first rung of the farming ladder for those looking to set up their own farming enterprise or existing farmers wanting to expand their current acreages.

Viewing of both properties is strictly by appointment, please contact Shirley Dodd on 01228 406274 to book a slot.

Commenting on these sales Thomas Armstrong said: “As we head into Spring, we are absolutely delighted to bring to the market these two farms. Both are located in areas of Cumbria renowned for producing quality grass and forage, and as such tremendous livestock. On both farms the land is all in good order and in addition East House farm also benefits from some land suitable for growing crops and arable.”

“I’m sure both properties will garner plenty of attention and we are looking forward to seeing a packed Ring 1 come auction day!”
