Richard Webber, of Greenslade Taylor Hunt, who is handling the sale, said: “Farms of this size and calibre rarely come to the market in this region. Penson Farm is widely regarded as one of the best commercial arable holdings in the area.”
Penson Farm at Bondleigh, situated between Crediton and Hatherleigh, extends to around 305 acres, and occupies an outstanding position in a peaceful rural location overlooking the picturesque Taw Valley. Although rural it is readily accessible and the farm includes an attractive detached farmhouse providing spacious six/seven bedroomed accommodation.
The property has a substantial stone barn, which subject to the necessary consents, could provide scope for the creation of further residential accommodation, holiday cottages, offices, etc.
The majority of the farm has been in the current vendor’s ownership for 25 years and has been managed to an extremely high standard. The main enterprise has been arable cropping with a rotation in recent years incorporating winter wheat, winter oats and spring barley with maize and stubble turnips also grown to supply local livestock holdings.
As well as being commercially productive, the holding also possesses considerable amenity and sporting appeal with small pockets of mixed woodland and frontage to the River Taw.
