A productive dairy farm in Somerset with 183 acres has come to the market for the first time in 57 years.

Chancellors Farm in Wanstrow, six miles from Frome has an excellent range of farm buildings, an 18/36 Fullwood parlour and associated dairy equipment.

Sitting at the end of a private drive in a rural position on the edge of the Mendip Hills, the good sized four bedroom, three reception room farmhouse dates from the early 1900s and has a recently updated kitchen and a farm office.

A three-bedroom bungalow at the secondary farm entrance provides useful additional accommodation to the main farmstead.

South West Farmer:

An extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings extends to approximately 5,008 square metres.

There are four cubicle housing sheds plus loose housing and general-purpose buildings.

The farm buildings are served by extensive concrete yard access and lead to cow tracks out to the land.

All of the land is level and arable capable and is currently down to grass leys.

The main 80 acres surrounding the farmyard is laid to permanent pasture with hardcore cow tracks providing access to all areas.

South West Farmer:

The 42 acres adjacent to the main grazing block is laid to productive grass leys and is also accessible for grazing.

The remaining 60 acres is 0.5 of a mile along the main road and is currently laid to productive grassland for silage and grazing.

There is potential access over an adjoining landowner’s land for the 60 acres of grazing.

Chris Powell, rural partner at the Symonds & Sampson Devizes office said: “As a model dairy farm, Chancellors Farm presents an exciting opportunity for a ready-made business, allowing the eventual purchaser to arrive with a herd and start milk production from day one.

"This will be the fourth commercial dairy farm brought to the market by Symonds & Sampson this year, more than any other agent in the south of England.

"This is due to not only our large presence as selling agents in the region, but also our extensive expertise in the dairy industry, meaning we can provide the best advice and service to buyers and sellers.”
