A productive mixed farm in a ring fence


Winterfield farm is an excellent and well equipped livestock and arable farm with a substantial farmhouse, cottage and about 280 acres of predominantly Grade 3 land. The farm has most recently been run by the outgoing tenant as a traditional mixed unit with suckler herd and a typical cereal and grassland rotation. The farmstead sits in the centre the holding, with the land surrounding in a ring fence divided by the road which gives access to the majority of the fields. To the eastern fringe of the farm lies an attractive mature mixed woodland known as Black Plantation, which extends to about 9.40 acres.

Winterfield Farm is superbly situated just outside the market town of Yarm, and close to both Darlington and Northallerton, all of which have excellent local amenities. The immediate surroundings and setting is typical for the area and comprises gently rolling arable fields interspersed with small woodlands and the River Tees beyond to the north.

The farm has good transport connections, being only 11 miles from Darlington train station and the East Coast mainline. From Darlington some services to Newcastle take under 35 minutes and London Kings Cross can take as little as 2 hours 34 minutes. The A19 trunk road lies 6.2 miles to the east with Middlesbrough 13.5 miles to the northeast.

The farm is well located for hunting with the Hurworth Hunt and horse racing can be enjoyed at Catterick, Thirsk or Ripon all within approximately 30 minutes drive. Other outdoor pursuits are well catered for in the nearby North York Moors National Park. Rockliffe Hall and Eaglescliffe golf courses are only a short drive away.

Winterfield Farmhouse
The farmhouse is a rendered brick built property set at the heart of the farm with traditional farm buildings and yard to the north and west. To the south is an attractive mature garden and lawn. The property has been extended over the years and now totals approximately 3,063 sq ft of internal floor area (including a 1 bed annex). Ground floor accommodation includes a large family kitchen, pantries, utility room, dining room, sitting room, office, garden room and w/c. The first floor includes 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom, with an externally accessed 1 bedroom annex. The property would benefit from modernisation, which could further enhance many of the attractive period features. The property was recently rewired, has oil fired central heating and a mixture of double and single glazed windows.

Winterfield Cottage
The Cottage dates from 1969 and is a detached brick built property off lying to the west of the farmstead, adjacent to the main farmyard access. Accommodation extends to approximately 965 sq ft all set on the ground floor and includes kitchen, sitting room, 3 bedrooms (1 used as an office) and a family bathroom. The property has double glazing and oil fired central heating. Outside there is a small garden and larger timber framed garage with steel profile roof and roller shutter door. Please note the garage was constructed by the outgoing tenant of the Cottage and is not included in the sale, but may be available to purchase by separate negotiation.

Farm buildings
To the north and west of the farmhouse is an attractive range of traditional farm buildings, these provide useful workshops, storage and livestock housing while adding to the privacy of the property.
In addition to the traditional buildings there is an extensive range of modern farm buildings set around a concrete and stone yard. Perfectly suited to mixed farming, the buildings include various livestock buildings (cubicles and loose housing), silage clamps, feed, straw and machinery stores.

The farmland lies in a ring fenced block surrounding the farmstead, many fields have direct road access to the main farm drive, a publicly maintained highway.
The land gently undulates but for the most part is flat at around 45 metres above sea level. This does fall away to Worsall Far Gill on the eastern fringe at approximately 25 metres above sea level. The land is predominantly classified as Grade 3 with a small area of Grade 4 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification. Soils are predominantly from the Crewe series, common to the locality and described as a clayey and fine loamy soil. The soil type is described as suitable for cereals and grassland. With the exception of the permanent grassland areas, the farm has supported a typical cereal rotation. This includes winter wheat, winter and spring barley, winter oats and temporary grass. Details of five year's previous cropping is available on request.

The farm includes Black Plantation, an attractive mature mixed woodland at the head of Worsall Far Gill on the eastern boundary of the farm. The woodland historically has been used for shooting and makes for an attractive addition to the sale.
