100 acres of South Shropshire pastureland to be sold by informal tender

One hundred acres of permanent pastureland in South Shropshire is for sale by informal tender in eight lots with a guide price of between £7,000 and £10,000 per acre.


Tenders for the land at Rhoneth Farm, in the rural hamlet of Whitcott Keysett, two miles from Clun, near Craven Arms, must be received by agents Halls at the company’s Battlefield headquarters in Shrewsbury by noon on Monday, June 3.


The eight blocks of land, which range from 1.38 to 45 acres, are being sold following the recent death of Vin Morris. All the lots are dependent on natural water supplies and the land is included within a Countryside Stewardship Mid-Tier Agreement

that ends on December 31, 2024.


There are five small lots ranging in size from 1.38 to 3.31 acres, which have

good access and are detached from the remainder of the farm. The three larger blocks extend to 20, 23 and 45 acres, respectively.


“This permanent pastureland has been used for grazing by livestock and mowing for grass conservation,” said Peter Willcock from Halls, who is handling the sale. “The land is situated in an area renowned for its heavy stocking capabilities.”


With nine offices across Shropshire, Worcestershire and Powys, Halls is a leading regional firm of estate agents, chartered surveyors, auctioneers and valuers.
