A wonderful opportunity to purchase an excellent range of general purpose livestock buildings with adjoining pasture land of approximately 12.46 acres (5.04 hectares) and located in an attractive private setting close to the Somerset/Dorset borders.


Rochester Farm is located in a wonderful rural, yet accessible location, just off the A30 between the village of Haselbury Plucknett and the town of Crewkerne, where an excellent range of facilities can be found, together with a mainline rail link to Exeter and London Waterloo. The A303 is within 5 miles and the Jurassic Coastline 17.5 miles.


Rochester Farm comprises an excellent range of purpose built farm buildings offering approximately 4770 sq ft of covered building space. The majority of the buildings are Hardwill construction and were built for a suckler cow unit but offer potential for a range of agricultural or equestrian uses. Adjoining the buildings to the north and south, are versatile sloping and level permanent pasture fields bounded by stock proof fencing and natural hedging. The land and buildings are served by an excellent hardcore track providing access from the council lane and in total the grounds extend to approximately 12.46 acres (5.04 hectares).
