Commercial holding in Exmoor National Park

June 2023

A most attractive residential and commercial livestock holding enjoying an outstanding rural position within the sought-after Exmoor National Park has just come on the market with agricultural specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

 Brockenbarrow Farm, Challacombe, near Barnstaple, is offered at a guide price of £2,400,000. It offers considerable agricultural, equestrian, conservation and amenity appeal, extending in total to about 290.47 Acre.

The setting, just inside the national park, is rural but by no means isolated, lying less than half a mile to the east of the A399 with the access drive leading directly off the B3358 Friendship Cross to Simonsbath road.

The property is centred upon a detached conventionally built farmhouse which was erected in the 1970’s, subject to an agricultural occupancy condition. Originally comprising a chalet style dwelling, the house was extended in the early 1990’s. Despite now requiring some updating the farmhouse provides well-proportioned family accommodation approached over a private entrance drive. 

Adjacent to the house is an extensive range of adaptable modern farm buildings currently utilised for the housing of livestock, fodder and machinery storage. 

For prospective purchasers with horses there is a purpose-built stable block for up to six horses. Additionally, there is an American-style indoor stable block for four horses and two ponies.

The farmstead itself is conveniently positioned within the surrounding land, which is contained within a ring fence and utilised for fodder production and the grazing of beef cattle and sheep.
