A rare opportunity to purchase a characterful and versatile smallholding centrally located to a popular rural village offering considerable business and amenity potential for a range of equestrian, leisure, retail or agricultural uses.

Please contact our Agricultural Department for further information.

Introduction - Edmonds Farm is a rural smallholding with broad business potential. In general, it comprises a 4 bedroomed character property with ancillary accommodation, a shop (until recently run as a Butchers), outbuildings and a paddock extending to 3.36 acres.

Directions - From Driffield take the A166 Sykes Lane towards York and Stamford Bridge. Continue on this road through Wetwang before reaching Fridaythorpe. In the centre of the village on the right hand side is the Farmers Arms. Turn right immediately after the Pub onto Back Street. Edmonds Farm is situated approximately 50 metres along on the right hand side, overlooking the pond and as denoted by our For Sale board.

Situation And Location - Edmonds Farm is situated within the rural village of Fridaythorpe. Fridaythorpe is found on the A166 York to Driffield road approximately 10 miles from Driffield, 8 miles from Pocklington, 12 miles from Malton and 20 miles from Beverley. The historic city of York is 20 miles away, while the popular coastal town of Bridlington is 22 miles away.

Back Street is in a quiet corner of the village, set away from the main road and overlooking the village pond. The village is well served by the Farmers Arms Public House, Convenience Store and Petrol Station. More extensive services are found at Driffield, Pocklington and beyond.

The Wolds Way long distance footpath passes through the village, past the front door in fact, and leads onto the scenic rolling chalk countryside beyond. This offers an untapped opportunity to develop a business on site focussing on the passing trade such as a caravan site (see below), and /or Tea Rooms etc., subject to Planning.
