Dickensbury Farm is on the northern edge of the sought after village of Pillerton Priors in south Warwickshire.  The larger village of Ettington is about 1.5 miles to the east.

The property is located just off the A422 leading onto the A429 and Fosse Way.

The farm comprises approximately 49.47 acres of gently undulating pasture land, enclosures together with a further range of smaller paddocks close to the farm buildings.

The land is detailed on the enclosed plan.

The farm buildings are approached from Walton Lane over a stone drive leading between small conifer trees. To the left is a small area used as an orchard and vegetable patch and to the right are a number of fenced and railed paddocks for horses.

Rights of Way

Potential purchasers should make themselves aware that there is a footpath which runs across the land (shown by the dotted line on the plan). The land is also subject to an 11kVA electric line which crosses the property.The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all rights of way, easements and services that may exist over the same whether disclosed or not.


The mobile home on site has planning permission for use as a staff welfare area, but not for permanent residential occupation.

In the agent’s opinion there is potential to convert one of the buildings into a dwelling using Class Q permitted development rights, alternatively to seek permission for a new agricultural worker's dwelling on the basis of a livestock enterprise. The agents can give further advice on this via our in-house planning team.

There is also potential for alternative commercial use of some of the buildings, subject to any necessary consents.


The property benefits from a mains water connection and a single phase mains electricity connection. Drainage is to a private system.
