Outstanding commercial farming opportunity with significant diversified income

Description

Introduction

The sale of Lingholm Farms represents an opportunity to acquire one of the largest commercial arable farming enterprises in North and East Yorkshire for a number of years. The business has expanded through acquisition and is centred on Lingholm Farm where considerable recent investment has been made into providing a new 2,700 tonne grain store to serve the whole business.

The arable area extends to 1,477 acres (598 hectares) mainly under combineable cropping but currently including 50 acres of carrots on part of the irrigable land. Lingholm Farm itself
(lot 1) extends to approximately 928 acres (375 hectares), all of which lies within a ring fence. Neighbouring land within lot 2 extends to 191 acres (77 hectares) and can be easily accessed
from Lingholm. The scale of the business was increased following the acquisition of The Grange, Flamborough which lies 13 miles to the south east extending to approximately 546 acres (221 hectares) in two blocks being lots 3 and 4. Lot 3 is approximately 248 acres (100 hectares) located to the north west of the
village of Buckton, whilst lot 4 is another 298 acres (120 hectares) lying to the north west of Flamborough. The combination of scale, good field sizes and variety of soil types offers economies of scale and fl exible rotations.

The residential accommodation is all at Lingholm Farm where the centrally placed farmstead lies in a very private position. The principal house is an attractive six bedroom traditional house built in the 1990s. Also within the farmstead are the separate farmhouse, cottages and a pair of barn conversions. The contract farmer occupies the farmhouse (under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy) whilst the others are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies producing signifi cant annual income.

An extensive range of farm buildings at Lingholm Farm currently supports the entire farming operation where the existing 3,000 tonne storage has recently been increased by a further 2,700 tonne store. For ease of management another grain store/general purpose building capable of storing an additional 600 tonnes was recently constructed on land at The Grange, Flamborough (lot 4).

Situation

Lingholm Farm (lot 1) lies in a private position to the south of Lebberston village. The farm can either be approached from the village or via the excellent farm access track which leads directly
to the farm from the A1039 trunk road. This provides access onto the A64 providing access to York (40 miles) and from there onto the A1 and motorway networks. There is a good train
line from Scarborough which connects into the intercity mainline at York. The land at Filey (lot 2) sits within a single block and is again accessed directly from the A1039. The land at Flamborough which previously formed part of The Grange is split into two blocks. The fi rst of these (lot 3) lies close to the village of Buckton with access from the B1229 and a private access track with the land extending up to the well known Bempton Cliffs. The land at The Grange (lot 4) is again accessed from the B1229 as well as a good private road. The land is close to McCains potato processing plant and Dawn Meats have a beef and lamb abattoir at Carnaby, Bridlington.


Acreage: 1665 Acres
