Valleyfield Farm is situated about 4 miles northwest of Kirkcolm and about 8 miles north of the bustling town of Stranraer. Valleyfield lies in a scenic and fertile farming region known as the North Rhins Peninsular. This area of Southwest Scotland 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.

Valleyfield farm benefits from a traditional four-bedroom farmhouse, extensive steading, traditional steading and about 184 acres of agricultural land. The property is situated on an elevated site, about 160ft above sea level, with far reaching views. Valleyfield Farm currently operates as a highly productive beef rearing farm.

THE FARMHOUSE
A traditionally constructed 1½ storey farmhouse, which would benefit from a degree of internal cosmetic upgrading. The property occupies an elevated site within its own garden grounds within close proximity to the coast. The property provides family accommodation over two floors

THE FARM STEADING
Valleyfield has an extensive farm steading of mainly modern construction. There is a range of derelict vernacular buildings to the rear of the farmhouse with the more modern steading utilised for the overwintering of a beef herd. We have included within the downloadable sales particulars a numbered plan, which depicts and shows the location of each of the buildings.

THE LAND
The lands of Valleyfield extend in total to about 191.23 acres to include the areas occupied by the farmhouse, steading, water courses, farm tracks, redundant cottages, etc. The fields are contained within a ring fence in 6 good sized field enclosures. The land has all been allocated a region 1 status and at present is all down to grass for either grazing or mowing. The land is contained within yield classes 3 & 4 of the Land Capability Scale as produced by the James Hutton Institute.

The farm is well capable of growing a wide range of arable crops. The farm is self-sufficient in home-grown forage. Valleyfield is registered with the Agricultural Food & Rural Communities, Rural Payments & Inspections Division, with a main location code. For the avoidance of doubt, the farm is farmed in conjunction with another holding within the same ownership. In the ownership of the present occupiers, a program of reseeding and improvement has taken place. The entire farm, with the exception of one field, has been reseeded

BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS
The whole of the agricultural land has been allocated payment region 1. We are advised that the vendors are active farmers (as currently defined under EU Regulation 1307/2013 and the Scottish Statutory Instrument 2014/58). We are further informed that the sellers completed an IACS/SAF submission 2021 (a copy of which can be made available for inspection from the sole selling agents during normal office hours).

Valleyfield Farm benefits from 71.00 units of region 1 entitlements with an illustrative unit values of €160.66 (Euros). The sellers will use their best endeavours to complete the necessary documentation to transfer any and all established Basic Payment Entitlements. For the avoidance of doubt any such payments already applied for prior to the completion date, will be retained by the sellers, i.e. the 2021 Basic Payment and 2021 greening payment.
