Cumbrian Farm to go under the Hammer

Thomas Armstrong

320-acre Cumbrian Livestock Farm by Public Auction.

As we head into a new year and a new decade, we bring to the market a superb 319.43 acre livestock farm, Westnewton Hall, located near Aspatria in West Cumbria. This high-quality stock rearing farm with very high quality land suitable for growing a range of crops benefits from a comprehensive and extensive range of modern farm buildings and a Grade II Listed seven-bedroom farmhouse.

With an overall guide price £2,750,000, Westnewton Hall is sold as a whole or in three lots by public auction at Borderway Mart, Rosehill, Carlisle at 1.00pm on Wednesday 15th April 2020. 

Lot 1 with a guide price of £140,000 consists of a single field enclosure extending to 15.20 acres (6.15ha).

Lot 2 with a guide price of £605,000, includes three field enclosures extending to 54.91 acres.

Lot 3 with a guide price of £2,005,000, consists of 246.70 ringfenced acres of excellent agricultural land and includes the farmhouse and farm steading.  

Giving further details to this farm Thomas Armstrong, Chartered Surveyor and Director of H&H Land & Estates said:

 “Rarely does the chance to purchase a substantial stock farm with significant acreage as well as a large farmhouse like this come along and I encourage interested parties to view just what this farm has to offer. 

As a whole or by individual lot, this farm provides tremendous potential for a farmer looking to expand or take on a well-established enterprise.  The land is excellent mowing/grazing and cropping land capable of growing a wide range of arable crops, so the options are wide and varied.” 

The land is registered for Basic Payment purposes (128.36 non-SDA entitlements are included in the sale and will be transferred to the new owner,) and it is also subject to a mid-tier Countryside Stewardship Scheme which ends on 31 December 2021.

Westnewton Hall’s range of large and smaller, traditional and modern farm buildings include various sheds and stores, a dutch barn, workshop and silage pit.  The Grade II Listed farmhouse offers substantial accommodation with seven bedrooms, a dining kitchen, living room, sitting room, dining room, office, utility room and pantry.  Outside there is a walled garden, two ponds and orchard.

  • Over the past few months, I’ve been dealing with Jenna to sort out some issues with a tenant that left and to find a new tenant for my property. You’ve been the managing agent for my flat since 2005 and the service that Jenna has given me recently has been nothing short of superb. She has promptly answered questions, given me reassurance and generally been a godsend over a fairly stressful time. You have a tremendous asset in Jenna.

  • From my first dealings with the valuer who came out to look at my property and telephone dealings with the staff in the office, I have had nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me all the way from start to finish, she has gone beyond my expectations and helped me in every way possible, her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property a very pleasant experience and for that I am very grateful.

  • Nothing but praise for the service offered by Andrew and Kathy at H&H King, Penrith. They really put themselves out, not only to ensure that we sold our house but also to find us a house that suited our requirements in the right area. We have no doubts that they are worthy of a 5* rating. N&T

  • Thank you so much [Mike] for all your help with the Mid-Tier Application. I couldn't have possibly done it myself and it was such a relief to be able to hand it over to you.

  • We are very pleased with the way you dealt with the Scroggs Wood programme. There seemed to be a number of difficulties, but you overcame all these problems and got the timber extracted in good time, and sold it well - we were delighted with the cheques we received. So we wish to thank you warmly for all your efforts, your expertise and your thoroughly professional approach.
