SITUATION Appledore Farm is situated in the heart of the South East Cornwall countryside, between the towns of Callington and Liskeard.

Cornwall is an extremely popular holiday destination, with both the North and South coasts being extremely attractive and within easy reach of the farm.

DESCRIPTION Appledore Farm comprises a very productive ring fenced arable farm in an easily accessible location between Callington and Liskeard in south east Cornwall.

The farmhouse comprises a Grade II listed six bedroom dwelling, providing spacious and comfortable living arrangements. Appledore Farm was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and has long since been regarded as one of the most productive farms in the area.

The house is immediately adjacent to the traditional and modern farm buildings. The traditional farm buildings, which can be found close to the farmhouse and along the entrance drive, have great potential for a variety of other uses such as residential units, or holiday lets (STP).

The modern farm buildings are located on a flat and easy working site and provides accommodation for over 350 cattle each winter. There are 3 silage pits, straights store and slurry pit, making this farm also suitable for a dairying enterprise.

The farm is an exceptional grass producing farm but is equally suitable for arable purposes and is linked with a good network of farm tracks, making a dairy enterprise very easy to achieve.

There is approximately 30 acres of woodland in pockets around the farm and the majority of the remaining land is level of gently undulating suitable for arable cropping. The recently resurfaced tarmac driveway, together with a well maintained farm tracks allow for good access to the land and make it easy to manage with a minimal number of staff.
