Full description

The land at Letcombe Regis is an attractive block of land situated within the Vale of the White Horse in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just three miles south west of the market town of Wantage. The land is situated on Bassett Road between the villages of Letcombe Regis and Letcombe Bassett.

The farmland extends to approximately 60.67 acres (24.55ha) of grassland. The land slopes gently to the south and is predominantly enclosed by mature native hedges and open ditches. Access to the land is taken off Bassett Road.

The land is classified under the MAFF Land Classification as Grade 2. According to the Soil Survey of England and Wales, the soils on the land are of the Wantage 1 Series which are well drained calcerous silty soils, best suited to winter cereals and short term grassland. The land has been claimed as temporary grassland (TG01) since 2011 but was previously cropped as arable.

The land is let under an Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 tenancy dated 30th March 1973 with a passing rent of £4,354 per annum. The rent was last reviewed on 29th September 2014.

The land is for sale by private treaty as a whole. The farm is sold subject to the Agricultural Holdings Act Tenancy detailed above.

The land is registered on the Rural Land Register for the Basic Payment Scheme. The entitlements are owned by the tenant and so will not be included in the sale.

The farmland is subject to an Entry Level Stewardship agreement which expires on 31st August 2016.

The farm falls within a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone (NVZ) and the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

There are no mains services connected to the property.

The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all rights including rights of way, whether public or private, light, support, drainage, water and electricity supplies and any other rights and obligations, easements and proposed wayleaves from masts, pylons, stays, cables, drains and water, gas and other pipes, whether specifically referred to or not.
