APPROXIMATELY 103 ACRES/42 HECTARES OF PASTURE & WOODLAND

TENDER DEADLINE

THURSDAY, 27TH SEPTEMBER 2018 AT 12 NOON

GUIDE PRICE £400,000 – £450,000

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

A block of permanent pasture and woodland adjoining a minor public road and located about 2 miles (3 km) to the south-west of Llangammarch Wells, 10 miles (16 km) from Builth Wells and 14 miles (24 km) from Llandovery.  It is shown edged in red on the attached plan.

The land currently forms part of the Cefndyrys Estate and was let to the late Mr Edwin Williams, whose family has farmed it for many years.  It includes 78.23 acres of gently to moderately sloping permanent pasture, some of which is either unimproved or semi-improved and about 25 acres of grazed ancient woodland.

As well as its value for grazing and for the cutting of silage and hay, the land due to its unimproved and semi-improved nature is also considered to have significant potential for entry into an agri-environment scheme. It may therefore not only be of interest to farmers, but also to others with an interest in conservation and the environment.

About 105 acres (42 ha) of additional land (which is shown edged in blue on the attached plan) is available to let under a Farm Business Tenancy by separate negotiation.  This additional land includes the potentially valuable and rare opportunity to apply for a grazing licence off the Ministry of Defence on its adjoining Eppynt Range (subject to acquiring the hefted sheep flock), further details of which can be provided on request.
