New Abbey, Dumfries, DG2 8HN
A PRODUCTIVE STOCK REARING FARM LOCATED IN A RURAL BUT ACCESSIBLE AREA OF DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY
Offered for Sale
Woodside Farm is situated off the shore road not far from the pretty village of New Abbey. Woodside Farm is a productive stock rearing farm, benefitting from a traditional farmhouse, modern and traditional farm buildings and about 202 acres of agricultural land. The agricultural land is down to grass or forage crops with the land being capable of growing a wide range of cereal and other forage crops.
Woodside farmhouse occupies an elevated south facing site within its own garden grounds adjacent to the farmyard. The property is of traditional construction under a slated roof offering comfortable three/four bedroomed family accommodation over two floors. The farmhouse benefits from its own south facing landscaped garden grounds, which are mainly laid to lawns and mature shrubs and specimen trees. The garden grounds offer privacy and seclusion from the working farm and the perfect area for alfresco dining
Woodside Farm extends in total to about 206.28 acres (83.48 Ha), to include the areas occupied by the farmhouse, steading, yards, access roads, etc. The holding features 17 specific field enclosures, which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage). The land is classified as predominantly yield class 4 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The farm is self-sufficient in home grown forage and capable of any type of livestock production. The grazing fields given the topography and natural cover afford grazing livestock shelter and benefit from the ability to outwinter breeding stock. The steading buildings at Woodside are a mixture of modern and traditional construction. We are informed that the steading is capable of overwintering 200 cattle.
BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS – IACS / SAF
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).
Woodside Farm benefits from 80.50 units of region 1 entitlements with illustrative unit values of €160.66 (Euros). The sellers will use their best endeavours to complete the necessary documentation to transfer the 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, 2021 greening payment and any LFASS payments.
