Unique Chance to Acquire a Small Agricultural Estate in the Purbecks

August 2022

A rare opportunity to invest in a delightful part of the Dorset countryside is being offered by agricultural property specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

Rushton Farm, East Stoke, Wareham, is situated within the charming Purbeck district of Dorset – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Rushton Farm has been subject to an Agricultural Holdings Act tenancy since 1976. This investment opportunity comprises a cottage in need of renovation, a range of both traditional and more modern farm buildings and approximately 140 acres of farmland, which borders the River Frome, a site of special scientific interest.

Rich in biodiversity and wildlife the farm lies within the tranquil farming settlement of Rushton in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The property is being sold by online auction to conclude on the 22nd September at 12 noon. The guide price is £500,000.

This method of sale provides the opportunity for a wider range of potential buyers to bid on the property and offers flexibility for vendors.

Being sold by the same process and the same vendors is a delightful parcel of freehold land with vacant possession, which lies on the opposite side of the River Frome extending to approx. 48 acres comprising delightful water meadows and pasture.  This very special holding is known as Luckford Lake and affords potential buyers the opportunity to acquire their very own piece of the Purbecks.
