A renowned 68-acre crop farm with equestrian facilities in the Scottish Borders has just come on the market.
Currently a productive equine and grass land farm, Whitemire Farm is every kind of country dream. The arable land means the days of buying in overpriced hay and haylage could be over.
Commenting on the property, Douglas Orr, Chartered Surveyor for H&H Land and Property, said: “The land at Whitemire Farm is of high quality and is classed as productive grade 2 arable land. Split into 17 fields, Whitemire is known for producing excellent quality haylage and silage, with the land capable of between three and four cuts each year. Whitemire benefits from good quality land and this allows the owner to grow their own high quality haylage and silage.”
11 miles from the market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Whitemire has excellent transport links. Berwick includes a main line railway station and the A1, running on the outskirts of Berwick, which offers good road access to the north and south.
Equestrian centres within a short drive include Ian Stark EC (40 miles), Flodden Edge Farm Riding and Driving Centre (17 miles) and Nenthorn EC (22 miles).
If you like to head onto the hunt field, then saddle up for a day with the Berkwickshire Hunt.
Currently on the market for just shy of £1m (£995,000), it is being offered for sale by H&H Land and Property.
