A block of more than 30 acres of farmland in the heart of rural Dorset has come to market.

The land at Askerswell sits between Bridport and Dorchester and is accessible by road.

It is predominantly pasture and is fenced for livestock.

It also includes wild flower meadows and a small area of woodland.

The picturesque organic farm also has a modern agricultural building.

Some of the land has frontage to the River Asker and part of the land is designated as a Site for Nature Conservation Interest, recognised by Dorset Wildlife Trust as being important for wildlife.

David Cross, director at Savills Salisbury, whose farm agency team is handling the sale, said: “The availability of this land, in such a beautiful location, presents a dream opportunity for environmentalists and amenity buyers.

"This new environmental tier that has emerged in our market in recent years - encompassing natural capital, carbon offsetting and personal pursuits such as re-wilding – opens up a range of options to potential buyers.

"We are expecting a strong level of interest in the property, which also enjoys some fine, far reaching views across Dorset and, in places, includes frontage to the River Asker.”

The land at Askerswell is being marketed by Savills with a guide price of £350,000.
