Additional information

  • Adlington Hall is rich in history. The origins of Adlington Hall can be traced back to Saxon times when Earl Edwin built a hunting Lodge. Norman Earls held Adlington for seven generations until 1221 when it passed to the Crown. Henry III passed the manor to Hugh de Corona whose daughter Lucy had one son, Thomas and two daughters - Ellen and Isabel. Ellen married John de Legh of Booth and during the reign of Edward II, Thomas, granted Adlington to Ellen and John for their life with the remainder to Robert, their second son. From thereon, Adlington became the ancestral home of the Legh family and has remained in their hands to the present day - over 700 years.
  • The farms on the estate are predominantly let on agricultural tenancy agreements to longstanding tenants. 1,229 acres are let on six separate agricultural tenancy agreements with smaller paddocks on short term grazing licenses - more details can be found in the brochure. There are 160 acres in hand which are predominantly around Adlington Hall.
  • In total there are twenty eight residential properties, with twenty two lying outside farm tenancies. These range from Mews houses to semi-detached cottages to Adlington Hall. The portfolio of residential property is spread across the estate; within the vicinity of the main house, forming part of farmsteads and within the village of Adlington. The properties are let on a range of occupancies, principally Assured Shorthold Tenancies (ASTs), of which all provide an interesting and diverse investment portfolio with opportunities for future uplift in value.
  • The Adlington Hall Estate provides a diverse rural investment opportunity. Whilst there is some in hand and trading income from events, public openings and other ad hoc arrangements and certainly potential to enhance this, the majority of the income is from the residential, commercial and agricultural rent rolls.
  • The property is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in lots. Purchasers should be aware that priority is likely to be given to interest in the whole and the main house before any viewings of the other lots.
