Cowar Farm is an exceptional arable and stock rearing farm, benefitting from an extensive modern agricultural steading.
For the avoidance of doubt there is no farmhouse, however given the acreage and viability of the unit there may exist the opportunity to construct a farmhouse within the subjects of sale, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained.
The land at Cowar Farm is situated about 1 ½ miles northeast of Haugh of Urr village in the Sterwartry area of Dumfries & Galloway. The property lies equidistant between Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas in a fertile and prosperous farming region. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty noted for the production of its quality livestock, arable crops and its long grass growing season.
Cowar Farm has in past years been utilised for arable production and the finishing of prime cattle. The property extends in total to about 377.10 acres (152.61 ha) to include the areas of shelter belt woodland, access tracks, steading etc.
Cowar has sufficient indoor winter accommodation to house approximately 370 strong cattle. The farm is at present run in conjunction with another holding, but is capable of being self-sufficient in both home-grown forage and cereals.
The steading comprises of an extensive range of mainly modern buildings, which benefit from a private water supply. We have included within the particulars of sale (download by clicking the tab on the left) a numbered Aerial photograph, which depicts and shows the location of each of the buildings.
The lands of Cowar extend in total to about 377.10 acres (152.61 hectares) to include the areas occupied by the steading, access tracks, shelter belt woodland, water courses, etc. The agricultural land, with the exception of two fields, is laid down to grass for grazing and or conservation (silage). There is one field which has been sown out in winter barley with the remaining field in stubble following a cereal crop.
