The Land
The land lies in a single contiguous block with direct vehicular access on the southern boundary from the Cranbrook Road.The land is typical of traditional Wealden Grade 3 permanent pasture, and has been the subject of very little maintenance, having been vacant for some years.

The property is subdivided into six small fields, each edged with a mixture of native hedging and dilapidated post and wire fencing.Both the land and building would now benefit from a programme of repair and improvement.

The Building
Adjacent to the principal access point on the southern boundary is the portal framed Atcost barn which has a gross external area of approximately 140 sq m (1,500 sq ft). The building is of concrete framed construction under a corrugated fibre cement roof.


Method of sale: The property is offered for sale as a whole by private treaty. A deadline may be set for best offers and interested parties are therefore encouraged to register their interest with the selling agent at an early opportunity.

Access: The principal point of access is in the south eastern corner of the land, directly from the Cranbrook Road. Given the overgrown nature of the boundary hedge, it is difficult to establish what secondary access points may have been in historic use.

Services: The land is not believed to have any current service connections. Interested parties should rely on their own enquiries as to the location, suitability and availability of service connections.

The property is being 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 other rights and obligations, easements and quasi-easements and restrictive covenants and all existing and proposed wayleaves for masts, pylons, stays, cables, drains, water and gas and other pipes whether referred to in these particulars or not. There are no public rights of way shown on the Kent County Council Definitive Map as crossing the farm.

Restrictive Covenant: The land is subject to a restrictive covenant imposed in two conveyances dated 1974 and 1976 which state that ‘The Transferee and his successors in title will not carry on any pig or chicken farming on the land hereby transferred.’

Basic Payment: No basic payment entitlements are included in the sale.

Designations: The land is not situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a SSSI.
