BTF is launching its spring farmland sales campaign by offering Wheatcroft Farm near Battle.
The holding extends to about 298 acres and comprises Wheatcroft Farm on the south side with frontage to Telham Lane, and the Loose Farmland to the north with access to the Hastings Road. The two holdings were combined in 2014 and are farmed in conjunction with other land holdings in the area.
There is a four bedroom agriculturally tied dwelling with outbuildings, gardens and grounds, and this is situated a short distance from the farmyard and buildings, which have been operated as an equestrian business for many years.
The principal barn has an indoor riding arena and 19 stables with tack rooms, and there are two more stables and feed and hay stores around the yard.
While the existing business is ceasing, there is a good opportunity for a new owner to re-establish a clientele from the excellent facilities, which include fenced grazing paddocks adjoining the yard.
The majority of the arable land, extending to around 162 acres, is at Loose Farm, on the north side of the wooded valley which runs east-west through the centre of the holding. The land is planted with spring beans following the 2022 cereal harvest.
The wooded valley and steep banks provide an excellent opportunity to establish a syndicate-driven shoot with strategically placed cover crops.
Richard Thomas, Director at BTF Partnership, commented: “This is one of the largest holdings to come to the market in the past few years in this part of Sussex. The farm occupies an elevated position very close to the popular town of Battle, and there are mixed opportunities for the purchaser, with arable and pastureland coupled with an opportunity to re-establish the livery business in the farmyard. There are approximately 56 acres of woodland and exciting potential to establish a driven pheasant shoot, with the establishment of cover crops on the higher ground.”
The farm carries a guide of £3,000,000 and BTF is expecting interest from right across South East England.
