220 acre Mid Wales farm with period residence placed on the market

A Mid Wales farm that has been in the same family for more than 140 years has been put up for sale for £2.85 million.

Bodaioch Hall in Trefeglwys, near Llanidloes, Powys, is owned by the Griffiths family who ran a successful dairy unit at the farm. In more recent years the majority of the land has been let under grazing licences with the current family planning to retire from the industry.

The sale includes an eight-bedroom period main residence, a five-bedroom cottage, a large number of farm buildings and productive farmland, suitable for pasture and arable crops.

“It’s very rare for a farm of such size and quality to come on the market in the area and it’s suitable for both commercial farmers and lifestyle buyers with its grand country residence,” said Joe Powell, a Chartered Surveyor at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd who have been appointed as agents for the sale.

Support a range of farming enterprises

“Bodaioch Hall is well equipped as a livestock rearing and finishing unit and would support a range of farming enterprises or diversification projects. The farm buildings include a range of traditional and more contemporary units that have been used for sheep housing in recent years, although these could be adapted, subject to necessary planning consent.”

The farm will be sold either as one unit or split into five lots. Lot 1 will include the hall, cottage and farm buildings, extending to 90.29 acres, while Lots 2-5 made up of high quality and productive land and pasture totalling 129.7 acres.

Stunning period property

Bodaioch Hall itself is a stunning period property including reception hallway, study, sitting and living rooms, a dining room, kitchen, pantries, conservatory and eight bedrooms.

The neighbouring semi-detached cottage includes a hallway, living and sitting rooms, utility room, kitchen/dining room and five bedrooms.

The farm buildings include stone, timber and steel-framed structures.

Located near two main livestock markets

Located in the stunning Trannon Valley in the village of Trefeglwys, the farm is close to the main towns of Llanidloes, Newtown and Welshpool, including the main livestock markets at Welshpool and Rhayader.

 

“We’re anticipating a lot of interest in the property, both for its residential and agricultural opportunities. The family would be pleased to see it sell as one lot, but we are also offering the opportunity to buy it as five separate lots,” added Mr Powell.

The sale is being handled by the Rural Team at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd. More details can be obtained by calling 01686 412567 or email llanidloes@morrismarshall.co.uk.
