A stunning Grade II listed family home which boasts a rich history and has been in the same ownership for over 50 years. The property is believed to date back to the 17th century with substantial extensions during the 1920s in the arts and crafts style. It offers a unique opportunity for customisation by the next owner to bring new life to its spacious rooms and make it their own.

There are a large number of traditional agricultural outbuildings which have been used for a variety of different purposes over the years. These include modern barns built for cattle and hay storage, a two storey hayloft and stabling for at least 8 horses. The land extends to around 120 acres including areas of ancient woodland and the historic and archaeological features of WW2 tank traps and a pillbox.

Holmstall Oast Cottage
Nestled within this historic estate, Holmstall Oast Cottage offers three spacious bedrooms and currently serving as a rental property, it offers a wealth of options either for income or for staff, family or long term guests.

Gardens, grounds and farmland
The main house is set within extensive lawns which provide an uninterrupted view to the landscape beyond and an attractive visual setting for the house.

Holmstall Estate also features an array of agricultural outbuildings with a diverse history of uses, including cattle, sheep and horses. These versatile structures offer potential for various ventures and activities.

Extending to approximately 120 acres the land offers a vast canvas for your aspirations. Whether you envision agricultural pursuits, equestrian usage, outdoor recreation, or simply enjoying the serenity of your vast domain.

A large part of the farm sits within an area of 3 sq. km un-interrupted by any roads and would lend itself to a rewilding project. All the grassland is species-rich and close to Lowland Meadow Priority Habitat in quality. The land has great potential for biodiversity uplift with considerable potential income from selling biodiversity units for Biodiversity Net Gain.
