Description

Description
Bakers Farm is a beautiful, productive, well maintained Exmoor Farm. The farmhouse sits centrally to the land with stunning views across the aspect of the farm. The traditional property is in need of refurbishment and could make a lovely family home providing spacious 4 bedroom accommodation in a protected setting. The farm currently operates in a traditional upland manner and is capable of supporting beef or sheep enterprises. It is currently used for the grazing of livestock and the production of grass forage crops. The farm would also be suitable for equestrian use and has access to spectacular outriding. Bakers Farm would suit various different enterprises with a collection of modern farm buildings, and two traditional farm buildings. The farm extends to about 155.40 acres and for the majority comprises gently to moderately sloping, productive land utilised for pasture. The balance of land is made up of steeper land typical of Exmoor and is high in amenity value and offers great sporting potential.
