George F White Announces Sale of Rye Hill Farm

27th April 2011

Ben Johnson from the Northumberland office of George F White LLP is delighted to announce the launch of 500 acre Rye Hill Farm onto the market this spring. Rye Hill farm represents an excellent opportunity to purchase a productive arable and grassland farm in one of the most sought after locations in Northumberland – the Coquet Valley.

The property briefly comprises 203.71 Hectares (503.89 Acres) of prime arable ground coupled with temporary and permanent pasture grassland. There are 2 principal 5 bedroom farmhouses, an excellent range of modern farm buildings and 2 further cottages. It is available as a whole with a guide price of £3.85M or as 8 separate lots.

Rye Hill Farm which is situated on the edge of the Northumberland National Park represents a rare opportunity for purchasers to invest in what has recently been a particularly quiet North East farmland market. The farm will appeal to agricultural and investor purchasers alike. The unit has been farmed commercially by the current owner with an emphasis on utilising the farm for arable production. However the location, topography and amenity of the farm coupled with the presence of the River Coquet SSSI (Special Site of Scientific Interest) running through the property has allowed the current owner to benefit from substantial stewardship payments which coupled with the Single Payment Scheme subsidy provide a major income stream for the farm.

Rye Hill is being offered for sale as a whole or in up to 8 lots. The guide price for the whole is £3.85M, with various lots available to accommodate the demand for purchasers looking to invest in bare arable land (for which there is considerable local demand) through to the cottages and also one of the farmhouses with approximately 8 acres.
