A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO LEASE AN EXTENSIVE HOLDING COMPRISING CIRCA 478 ½ ACRES IN A UNIQUE LOCATION OFF THE NORTH ANTRIM COAST TOGETHER WITH ACCOMMODATION AND USEFUL RANGE OF LIVESTOCK HOUSING
Set amongst circa 478 ½ acres (max. eligible area 451.33 acres (DARD measure)), this extensive hill farm with comfortable 4-bedroom cottage and extensive range of farm buildings, presents an incoming tenant with a unique opportunity to experience life on a popular island, very accessible to the mainland off the North Antrim Coast. Brockley occupies a private situation on the island with panoramic sea views towards both the North Antrim and Scottish coastlines.
The holding is suitably contained in one block making movement of stock easier and more convenient for a single handed farmer. The land is of mixed quality with circa 23 acres of cutting ground conveniently located adjacent to the main farm at Brockley and the out farm at Cleggan, circa 100 acres of lowland grazing also within easy reach of the main farm and the remaining circa 328 acres comprise a vast area of hill land. The whole farm is adequately fenced to contain stock with internal stock fencing or permanent post and wire high voltage electric fencing, particularly around the hill land. A natural water supply is available throughout. Rathlin’s mild and temperate climate means that the seasons are a few weeks later than the mainland with stock rarely housed before late December and turned out mid spring. BPS entitlements are available and livestock is available at valuation.
