LAND AT YSGAFELL - LOT 1 The productive pastureland extends to 85.22 acres (34.48 ha) with 1.73 acres (0.70 ha) or thereabouts of woodland. The land at Ysgafell is located in a ring fence surrounding the farmhouse and buildings, dissected by a railway which serves the Shrewsbury to Mid Wales Coastline. The land is fertile river ground with loamy soil that is freely draining, and is suitable for grazing, mowing and arable rotations.

There are well kept fences and mature hedgerows. The land is currently all down to grass and benefits from in-field water troughs connected to a Well supply. A bridge and tunnel connect the lower land. The river stretches for almost a mile along the land at Ysgafell and the property benefits from fishing rights.

LAND AT BRYN, GLYNRHYD - LOT 2 The Bryn at Glynrhyd amounts to 28.97 acres (11.72 ha) or thereabouts offers some of the most beautiful views over the Welsh countryside and is a combination of sloping grassland and flourishing woodland. During the springtime a mass of wild daffodils emerge from within the trees.

As well as its use as agricultural grazing land, it has amenity and natural capital potential through engaging in activities such as carbon sequestration.

It suits as a delightful addition to the farm as well as a great opportunity as a standalone.
