About this property

  • Di Enw is an outstanding stock rearing farm with a superb range of general purpose buildings, a highly regarded stock farm with progeny sold throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. The farm buildings were largely built within the last twenty years mainly to in-winter cattle.

    Di Enw is situated in beautiful undulating countryside with magnificent far reaching views of the Shropshire Hills AONB. Located approximately 6.5 miles from the village of Minsterley, which has a range of local shops and amenities together with primary schools located in Bishops Castle, Minsterley, Pontesbury and Norbury and secondary education in Pontesbury and Bishops Castle. Private prep schools are close by at Abberley and Moor Park. The surrounding market towns of Bishops Castle (9 miles), Welshpool (14 miles) and Shrewsbury (16.5 miles) are in convenient commuter distance and provide an extensive range of shops, social amenities and livestock markets. Good road and rail networks connecting of the midlands and further a field.

    Di Enw is an excellent, well equipped stock farm extending to about 166 acres (68.14ha). The vendors family have farmed Di Enw for twenty years and have come to a decision to change their farming policy. A substantial range of modern livestock buildings have been erected over that period to now accommodate a herd of 100 pedigree Charolais cows plus followers as well as 250 breeding ewes. Di Enw provides a fantastic opportunity to purchase an excellent grass growing stock farm with sporting and amenity potential.

    Di Enw Farmhouse, built under an agricultural restrictive planning permission, sits to the north of the farmstead in an elevated position which together with the southerly aspect gives spectacular views over the farmland. The farmhouse is formed of a two storey brick and render construction with slate roof and benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating. Internally the accommodation is set over two floors. The ground floor includes porch entrance, internal hall way, kitchen/diner with Stanley cooker, sitting room with log burner, conservatory, utility area, WC and a further rear porch. The first floor includes three double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom.

    The dwelling has planning permission granted for a two storey extension (application No: 1/08/21246/F) which is located to the south east elevation and we are informed a material start has been made.

    Externally the property benefits from a large driveway area, a well laid out garden and a range of kennels.


    There is an extensive range of modern farm buildings set around a concrete and stone yard. These have been built around the expansion of the farm over the last 20 years and have been designed to accommodate a suckler herd and a sheep flock successfully developed by the vendors.

    The land offers a productive ring fenced block of pasture which is capable of being extensively grazed together with large areas suitable for mowing. The land benefits from a stock-proof fence and extends to 166 acres. The majority of the land benefits from a natural water supply with the remaining land benefiting from water troughs connected to pools.
    Soils are predominantly from the Stanway and Malvern series, both common in the locality and described as fine silty over clayey soils on rock, slowly permeable often stoneless. Ideally suited to grass production for dairy and stock rearing.
