The Land

The land at Wolvey House Farm extends in all to approximately 17.73 acres of pasture land, the land to the east is split by the River Anker which houses one of the most active Water Vole habitats in the Midlands. The river wll be fenced off by the Environment Agency to protect these habitats and prevent the river banks from further erosion by stock grazing.
The land is productive pasture land and would be suitable for a number of agricultural, equestrian activities or other leisure amenities subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Access can be gained from Wolds Lane to the west of the land via a single field gate, the land is bordered by fence and mature hedgerow boundries. Specific planning advice would need to be taken as to the possibility of being able to construct a small range of stables or an agricultural building on the land, however, assuming there is a proper requirement for such a building, then planning permission should be able to be obtained.


The western area of land extending to 2.93 acres and rectangular in shape is subject to a clawback provision which will reserve 25% of any increase in value due to planning permission being granted for any residential or commercial development which increases the value over and above the existing agricultural value. This clawback provision will remain in place for 25 years from the date of sale, full details are available in the sale contract.


The land is occupied on a grazing licence by a neighbouring farmer and this licence will continue until exchange of contracts. A six week notice provision must be given to the graziers from this time in order to achieve vacant possession. It should be noted that the current graziers would be happy to continue grazing the land if it was the wish of the purchaser.
