A well-equipped and productive dairy farm with nearly 200 acres in North Devon has come to market.

Highworthy Farm used to be part of the Clovelly Estate but has been owned by the same family for the past 67 years.

The farm, currently run as an intensive dairy unit, is available as a whole, to include 198.75 acres (80.43 hectares) of land, or in up to three lots.

The farmstead occupies an almost unique position within the centre of the holding, surrounded by its level, gently undulating and productive pasturelands.

In total, there are three dwellings, together with an extensive range of principally modern farm buildings providing cubicle accommodation for 400 cows and currently milked through six Lely robotic milkers.

Lot 1 includes a traditional five bedroom farmhouse and a courtyard of traditional buildings, a three bedroom farm bungalow and an extensive range of principally modern farm buildings, set in 144.68 acres.

The buildings provide cubicle accommodation for 400 cows together with ancillary young stock buildings and fodder storage.

At the present time, the cows are milked through six Lely robotic milkers and the unit is designed for efficient milk production with the current herd housed throughout the year. The buildings comprise a three bay young stock building, a fuel store and a four bay fodder barn.

The dairy contains the Lely computer control systems, dairy equipment, hot water heater and ice bank.

Next to this is a Roka 30,000 litre stainless steel silo bulk tank.
