Rare opportunity to buy mixed farm in the South Downs

An attractive 343 acre farm within the South Downs has come to the market for the first time in almost 90 years.

Manor Farm, in Langrish, near Petersfield, is thought to date back to the 1400s in parts and it was originally a sheep farm. Since then it has been a mixed farm with a dairy herd, beef cattle and arable land, and it has been in the same ownership for the last 87 years.

Manor Farm comprises a period detached farmhouse, which is not listed, with a one bedroom annexe; Dove Dale House, a secondary four bedroom detached period house; and two additional farm cottages, one of which is let on an assured shorthold tenancy.

There is also a historically important Dovecote, which is Grade II listed and thought to have been built in 1432. A range of modern and traditional farm buildings provide about 350 tonnes of grain storage, machinery storage and a range of livestock housing.  Two of the buildings are currently licensed to commercial occupiers delivering a further rental income.

For equestrian enthusiasts, there are three stables within a traditional courtyard, nearby grazing paddocks and access onto the bridleway network providing off-road hacking across Hampshire and the South Downs.

The land is of mixed topography with areas of woodland and ponds, where an excellent shoot is run in conjunction with the neighbouring farms.

There is a total of 144 acres of arable land, 144 acres of pastureland and 37 acres of woodland, and there is currently a herd of Hereford cattle on the farm.

Manor Farm is available as a whole, with a guide price of £5,800,000, or in lots.
