Description

Commercial block of arable and pasture land extending to approximately 136 acres

Further Information

Manor Farm extends to approximately 136 acres of bare farmland set on the northern edge of the Chew Valley in the Somerset countryside. Split between arable cropping and permanent pasture, the land was formerly part of a dairy farm, and now comprises seven enclosures with a central hard track nestled in the attractive foothills of the Mendips.

The land is located on the fringe of the historic village of Norton Malreward; approximately two and a half miles north east of Chew Magna, famed for its range of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Bristol is within 6 miles by car, whilst the Georgian city of Bath is approximately 13 miles to the east; both of which have mainline railway stations, a vast range of shops and services, together with transport links to the wider region. There is a good access the local road network with the A37 and A368 nearby, linking to the M4/ M5 motorways.

The property is available as a whole or in four lots, as summarised below:-

Lot 1 (8.40 acres)
Two paddocks down to grass adjacent to the farm entrance and Holy Trinity Church. The paddocks are bound by stock proof fencing and hedging, with an over-ground mains water supply. Lot 1 includes a section of the freehold access track, over which a private right of way will be granted if the wider farm is sold to a third party. An old caravan is located on the western boundary, which has been used historically by the vendors on a seasonal basis.

Lot 2 (4.06 acres)
An area of level grassland located between the airstrip and village of Norton Malreward. The land has been used for livestock grazing with temporary electric fencing.

Lot 3 (46.94 acres)
Approximately 19 acres of productive arable land split into two enclosures currently down to a 2 year temporary grass ley; together with a single enclosure of undulating permanent pasture formerly included in the arable rotation extending to approximately 28 acres. The land is fenced to a high standard with stock-proof fencing and mature hedgerows. Over-ground water pipes service the land, with access provided by the central hard track.

Lot 4 (76.60 acres)
A large arable fi eld currently fallowed in part, together with an area of forage rape. The land has been left to fallow by the vendors to improve fertility, with historic cropping including winter wheat, barley and oilseed rape.

The soils at Manor Farm are predominantly lime rich loam over clay creating productive well drained land; well suited to autumn arable cropping and grass. Recent stocking with sheep has helped boost organic matter, whilst also enabling
the use of temporary grass leys as an alternative break crop.
