Blelack Farm is a highly regarded livestock and arable unit, in all extending to an approximate total of 640.33 acres (259.14 hectares) of predominantly arable land. The farm offers extensive cattle accommodation and ancillary buildings, with housing capacity for over 300 cows. The farm includes a spacious, principal farmhouse, set in a private position to the northeast of the steading, with gated access and private garden, laid to lawn. In addition, the property provides a diversified income stream by way of three recently renovated cottages, used as family accommodation or as self-catered holiday lettings, and a studio flat which could also be used as a farm office.
The property is predominately south and west facing, allowing the farm to produce high quality crops of grass and spring barley. The current owners have made substantial investment and improvements to the property over the past five years, in particular to the farm buildings, cottages, roads, drainage and fencing.
