A productive livestock and arable farm with attractive woodland
Cocklicks Farm is an attractive, ringfenced (with exception of one field) stock rearing and arable farm. The farmhouse and buildings sit adjacent to the public road with the majority of the farmland to the north. There is a charming woodland belt wrapping around the west and north boundaries of the farm providing shelter to livestock as well as amenity.
The farm has been owned by the same family since 1986 and has been utilised for the purposes of stock rearing with the land all down to grass for livestock grazing or silage production for winter forage. Ahead of the imminent sale of the farm, the stock numbers have been reduced significantly and some of the fields have been slurried and silaged by neighbouring farmers.
Cocklicks Farmhouse is a substantial two storey, stone and slate dwelling house which sits to the east of the farm buildings. There is a stone and slate porch to the front of the house which opens into the main hallway providing access to the ground floor accommodation.
To the back and attached to the farmhouse are stone and slate outbuildings currently used for general storage and housing for the biomass boiler and woodchip.
There is a garden area to the front of the farmhouse that is enclosed with hedges and trees.
The farm buildings at Cocklicks Farm comprise a useful range of traditional and modern sheds.
In total the land extends to 256 acres and comprises 213 acres of arable and 36 acres of woodland. All of the farmland is classified as Class 3(2) by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research with the exception of three parcels of 4(2) and a band of 6(2) within the woodland. The land is very gently undulating and lies between 26 metres at its lowest point near the public road and 59 metres above sea level at its highest point on the northern boundary. The soil is brown soils. There is a useful hardcore track running from the farmyard providing access to the majority of fields. Field 17 to the south is accessed via the public road.
