A superb 170 acre commercial farm in a sought-after area of West Dorset has launched to the market with Symonds & Sampson.

Named after the cry of the Red Kite, once a common bird in Dorset, Kitwhistle Farm was formerly run as a dairy and is located in the chalk downland close to the popular town of Beaminster.

At the farmstead an extensive range of versatile farm buildings are arranged around expansive yards.

The productive arable/pastureland is currently registered organic. 141.64 acres adjoin the farmstead and is serviced by excellent farm tracks. Lot 3, an off lying block of 28.59 acres lies a short distance away.

The spacious four-bedroom farmhouse (AOC) with a two-bedroom annexe has been successfully run as a B&B by the vendors.

Visitors are drawn to the peaceful, rural location yet proximity to the market towns of Beaminster and Bridport, as well as easy of access to the Jurassic Coast all add to the appeal.

A 2-bedroom mobile home offers additional accommodation.

The farm is for sale as a whole or in up to three lots with a Guide of £2,575,000 for the whole.
