Full description

Totalling 369.65 acres of primarily Arable land. Part of The Compton Estate, Lot 3 also includes a range of redundant farm buildings.


Whilst a rural area, the Estate is extremely accessible, with easy access to the A34, linking to the M4 just a few miles south. The historic village of Compton is mentioned in the doomsday book and retains traces of roman occupation. A flint walled parish church, post office, hotel and both a primary and secondary school are found within the village. There are strong links to both farming and horse racing locally. East Ilsley, which lies on the western boundary of the Estate and was historically famous as a training centre for racehorses and for its annual sheep fair. The village also offers a primary school, church and two public houses.


Lot 3 (as shown yellow on the sale plan)
Situated south east of East Ilsley, Lot 3 amounts to approximately 369.65 acres with 279.86 acres (113.26 hectares) of arable land, 82.7 acres (33.47 acres) of restricted land and 3.62 acres (1.46 hectares) of woodland. At the centre of the Lot is Bakers Barn which is a redundant red brick barn adjacent to the byway requiring complete renovation. Conversion to alternative use would be subject to planning but part appears to have previously been used for domestic purposes. Adjacent is a large hardstanding area and more modern portal framed barn. Due to the proximity to the village and the area allocated for development, part of this Lot is subject to the overage requirement.

Acreage: 369.65 Acres


From London take the M4 to junction 13 and then follow the A34
north towards Oxford. After 7 miles take the exit to Compton/East Ilsley and continue through East Ilsley onto the Ilsley Road towards Compton. Just over 1 mile from East Ilsley on the right hand side is a sign and the driveway for Mayfield Farm.
