Sorbie, Newton Stewart, DG8 8AL
AN EXCEPTIONAL HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE DAIRY FARM LOCATED IN AN AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY SET WITHIN THE MACHARS PENINSULA OF DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY
Offered for Sale
Knockeffrick Farm is situated within close proximity to the village of Sorbie within the beautiful Machars Peninsula of Dumfries & Galloway. Knockeffrick lies in a scenic and fertile farming region of Southwest Scotland which is renowned for the production of its quality livestock and early grass growing potential. The peninsular is favoured with a mild climate, given the proximity of the gulf stream to the coastline. The farm enjoys elevated views over the open countryside and is within a short drive to the many tranquil beaches and coastal walks around the Machars area.
Knockeffrick farm benefits from a traditional extremely well-presented four bedroom farmhouse nestled within its own attractive private grounds along with, a three bedroom dairy cottage, a modern steading (cubicles for 220), and about 190 acres of prime agricultural land.
Knockeffrick Farm currently operates as a highly productive dairy farm with their herd of Montbéliarde cattle utilising a relatively modern dairy complex and the capacity to house 220 dairy cattle plus young stock.
The farm extends in total to about 190.41 acres to include the area occupied by the farmhouse, cottage, farm steading, access tracks, etc. For the avoidance of doubt, the telecoms mast and right of access are specifically excluded from the sale.
