The sale of two farms on Llyn Peninsula in northwest Wales has brought more than 550 acres to market. Bryn Nodol offers 119 acres of productive grassland, sold by informal tender, while Bryn Ifan has 451 acres of mixed grazing and is for sale by private treaty. Both farms have a guide price of £1.3 million.
“Bryn Nodol is a block of productive grassland with a modern cattle housing building, which also benefits from slurry storage and an adjoining silage clamp,” said Hugh O’Donnell, partner at Carter Jonas. “The land is in excellent heart having been periodically improved and is ideally suited for fodder production and livestock grazing.”
It is located less than a mile from Tudweiliog and comprises ring-fenced blocks of improved grassland arranged in four large, level fields, with six further enclosures rising along the southeastern boundary. A cattle house is included, with a seven-bay steel portal frame with a slatted floor and concrete panel slurry housing. The farm also offers extensive sheep-handling facilities.
The land at Bryn Ifan is typical of the Yr Eifl mountain range and is located two miles from Clynnog Mawr and 20 miles from Bangor.
“Bryn Ifan is an extensive block of mixed grazing that is made up of pasture grazing, rush pasture and upland grazing on the land’s higher elevations, with 313 acres of the holding classed as common ground,” said Mr O’Donnell.
The lowland block extends to around 112 acres and is predominantly permanent pasture and improved grassland which is largely level but with some gently sloping suitable for grazing and silage production.
“The 280 acres of upland comprises two ring-fenced blocks split by a small road,” Mr O’Donnell added. “Meanwhile the 61 acres below is a mixture of permanent pasture, which then becomes wetter and more marginal with rush pasture and marsh ground. The land above the road extends to around 280 acres of rough grazing and rocky outcrops.”
Both holdings have benefitted from inclusion within the Glastir Entry and Glastir Advanced agri-environment schemes, due to expire at the end of this year.
