Published: 20/04/2023 By Will Wallis

A 952-acre arable and livestock farm with a residential property portfolio in the Tarrant Valley launches to the market today, offering tremendous potential for the successful purchaser(s). Partner Will Wallis has the details.

Preston Farm, Crook Farm and surrounding land extend in total to 952.46 acres (385.42 hectares) of highly productive farmland together with a farmhouse, substantial ranges of modern and traditional buildings, two airfield hangars and telecommunication mast, all offered with vacant possession. The land is well-served by an excellent network of internal roads.



Part of the property was a former airbase from 1943 to 1947 and used for glider operations during World War II. Some of the runways, hangars and buildings are still present today and included within the property.

The estate has been farmed by the vendors since 1938 and comprises arable, beef and pig enterprises. The land and buildings have been exceptionally well tended to by the family over the decades.

Within the village of Tarrant Rushton, there is a portfolio of seven residential properties, of which five are subject to tenancies and two with vacant possession, providing an appealing and attractive investment with the potential for substantial rental income.



“Agricultural and residential property portfolios of this size and quality rarely come to the market in Dorset” comments Will Wallis, Partner at Symonds & Sampson handling the sale, “The estate offers itself to the market in good heart with huge potential for the successful purchaser(s).”
