An excellent 650 acre chalk down land farm in the Cerne Valley

Rarely does a ring-fenced farm of this size come to the market in Dorset. The productive loam and clay soils on undulating chalk downland make Watcombe Farm a profitable arable farm or mixed farm, currently farmed with a focus on conservation.

An excellent 650 acre chalk down land farm in the Cerne Valley

The farm is in a magnificent part of Dorset countryside with rolling and interlocking hills and valleys.  So atmospheric is the landscape that the farm was chosen as a location for Bill Douglas’ 1986 film ‘Comrades’, the story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs.

The farm includes a 5-bedroom farmhouse, a pair of 3 bedroom cottages, 1,100T grain storage, a telecoms mast and a magnificent flintstone barn.

Healthy returns from arable cropping together with stewardship agreements, mast and cottage rents and grazing have enabled the farm to return a comfortable profit every year.

Watcombe Farm is available with a guide price £6,250,000.  Contact Head of Farm Agency Andrew Tuffin on 01258 474268 for more information.
