About this property

  • Kirby Hall Farm is a productive arable farm set within a ring fence and includes a delightful farmhouse that has recently been fully refurbished, along with a separate annexe. The two properties are set in the heart of the farm down a private drive, offering privacy and tranquillity. Adjacent to the farmhouse is the farm yard where there are two excellent modern farm buildings.

    The farmhouse was renovated in 2021 with the works having been completed to a high standard, the property retains character throughout while benefitting from modern features. At the same time the annexe was constructed providing further living accommodation.

    The farm is situated in the Welland Valley, an area known for its rolling countryside and scenic villages. The land is productive and capable of growing a wide variety of combinable crops. Over the last five years the land has been farmed in a regenerative manner, improving the soil structure and the overall productivity of the farm with minimal tillage practices operated alongside other regenerative practices.
