Farming Matters: Farm sale attracting a lot of attention

Farms don’t come up for sale very often for obvious reasons, as they tend to pass from generation to generation.

So when one is available it tends to attract a lot of attention.

An impressive equestrian set up is one such unit currently on the market with a guide price of £625,000.

Hogshaw Road Farm located between Granborough and Botolph Claydon has a history in successful National Hunt and flat racing.

The well maintained 47 acres features 11 stables, a range of outbuildings including a barn and a tack room, and a five and a half furlong woodchip gallop.

There is also level, ring fenced land which has produced excellent hay crops in recent years and which is surrounded by mature hedgerows.

Stephen Rutledge of Fisher German property and land agents in Thame, said: “There is excellent out riding in the locality and several high quality equestrian competition venues nearby, while horses can compete at Towcester, Newbury and Hungtingdon without having to travel too far.

“Everything is in place for horse racing owners to continue building on the success of the previous owners at the property.”

Alternatively, Mr Rutledge suggested it could be turned into a productive small farm.

He said: “Farming, like many industries, has diversified over the last few years to ensure there are regular income streams from a number of channels and Hogshaw Road Farm has the ability to provide this.”

If the farm is of interest to you, contact Mr Rutledge or Will Taylor at the Thame office on 01844 212004.
