Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Approximately 398 acres of biodiverse pastureland, offering substantial economic opportunities through agri-environmental schemes.

Description

The pasture land contains a rich biodiversity that supports an enormous variety of plant, bird and animal species with particularly significant feeding grounds which has led to substantial economic opportunities in the form of agri-environmental schemes.
The present owners have built up a significant landholding on North Moor – which is thought to be the largest private ownership on the Somerset Levels and Moors – and have managed the land in an environmentally sensitive manner under a grassland management system. The land has been farmed under agri-environmental schemes for over 15 years and is presently in an Entry Level/Higher Level scheme (ELS/HLS).
The fields provide valuable moorland summer grazing (April – October/November) and hay making from the beginning of July. The hay fields are normally rotated over the landholding from year to year. The land has been managed under annual grazing/mowing licence agreements in recent years.

Sporting
There is also great potential for sporting enthusiasts with shooting for duck, wildfowl and vermin as well as roe deer stalking on the land, subject to complying with the agri-environmental scheme.

Lotting
The land is being offered to the market as a whole and in two separate lots as follows:
Lot 1- in all about 89.25 acres.
Lot 2- in all about 309.35 acres

Access
The land registry titles do not include the droves, these give access to the enclosures/fields. The custom arrangement is that the maintenance of these droves is divided between the landowners. A full explanation on the access rights is available from the vendor’s solicitor: Rod Lloyd- Jones, Clarke Willmott, Taunton. . Rod.lloyd-
