Full description

Melcombe Farm (Lots 2&3 of the Higher Melcombe Estate) is an attractive mixed farm set in its own valley. It comprises:

Melcombe Farmhouse, a four bedroom detached period house.

There are four additional cottages on the property.

The main farmstead is predominantly modern buildings and situated further along the driveway from the Manor.

The farm lies within a ring fence and includes approximately 302 acres of arable land which is farmed in hand and 112 acres of grassland with the land rolling down to the centre of the farm. The land immediately surrounding the farmstead is well serviced by tracks. The central fields are generally level or gently sloping pastures with adjoining land gently climbing to meet the estate's elevated land.

There are several parcels of woodland located within and on the farm boundaries.

The combination of the topography of the land with the parcels of woodland all add to the sporting potential and amenity of the estate.

Melcombe Farm is situated in an exceptionally attractive part of Dorset.

The farm is well located, approximately six miles from the A354 between Dorchester and Blandford. The Ibberton (in Ibberton)and the Brace of Pheasants (in Plush) are very good pubs within approximately 10 minutes drive of the estate. The market town of Blandford Forum is approximately 12 miles to the east and the country town of Dorchester is approximately 10 miles south, both offering eductational, shopping and recreational facilities.
