Two significant coastal farms come to the market in Pembrokeshire

15 August 2016

Two significant coastal dairy farms in Pembrokeshire, offering nearly 1300 acres in total, have come to the market. 

Broadmoor Farm near Talbenny and Corston Farm at Hundleton represent some of the most significant properties of their kind to come to the market in Wales in recent years, according to selling agents Savills.

Broadmoor farm extends to over 800 acres.  Bordering the Pembrokeshire coastline,  Broadmoor has modern milking facilities and housing for 400 cows.   It has been run as a successful dairy farm by the current owners in tandem with Corston Farm, as part of a larger farming and vegetable packing business in England.

Currently housing a herd of 400 Holstein Friesans, that produce an average of 9,500 litres per cow for cheese production, the farm has the potential to expand and milk a larger herd.  Although currently dairy farmed, much of the land has been arable farmed over the years and, with a coastal influence, is known as being “early”.

The farm has five residential dwellings – a main farmhouse set away from the main farmyard, two houses adjacent to the main farmyard and a further farmhouse and cottage on an adjoining holding.  In addition, on the edge of the main farmyard there are two semi-detached houses that have in the past been used for staff accommodation.

The main farm is well served by a range of substantial modern portal frame outbuildings all set round a thoughtfully-designed farmyard complex.  The majority of the land is down to grass with areas of woodland and the coastal cliff land.

The northern and western edges of the farm border the coastline and include a small pebbly beach called Mill Haven.

Broadmoor is on the market with a guide price of £6.2 million for the whole or in three Lots.

Corston Farm is a 483 acre dairy farm with views to the Pembrokeshire coast and sea.  The residential element of the farm consists of two 3-bedroom semi detached cottages and two detached 3-bedroom lodge bungalows.

Made up almost entirely of early growing productive grassland with a small area of woodland, the land is divided into generous sized fields with good access for modern machinery.

Extensive modern outbuildings include 20:40 Herringbone parlour, livestock, feed and machinery housing and cubicle housing for around 300 cows.  There are additional traditional outbuildings with potential for development subject to planning.

Corston Farm is for sale as a whole or in three Lots with a guide price of £3.8m.

Dan Rees of Savills comments, “Broadmoor Farm is one of the most important high quality farms to come onto the market in Wales for a number of years.  The owners have run both Broadmoor and Corston as part of a wider business and there is potential for them to continue to operate in this way or for them to be sold as separate entities.

“Both farms have a considerable amount to offer in terms of land, buildings and machinery.  As well as being set up for dairy farming there are a number of options for diversification of cropping and alternative use of buildings subject to planning.”
