Former dairy farm provides home and enterprise opportunities near the Powys-Shropshire border

A former dairy farm with over 48 acres of land close to Welshpool, Powys has been put up for sale, complete with idyllic farmhouse.

The Hollies at Pool Quay is set in open countryside with views towards the well-known Rodney’s Pillar and has the Montgomery Canal passing through its land.

The property is being sold through Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd who have said it provides the perfect opportunity for someone looking to develop a smallholding or to utilise for equestrian or even residential/holiday let purposes.

Three-bedroom farmhouse and 48acres of pastureland

“The smallholding includes a detached three-bedroom farmhouse that needs some internal modernisation. The level pasture land extends to 48.24 acres and has a range of farm buildings,” said Richard Evans, a Partner at MMP/NL.

The farmhouse is surrounded by lawned areas with floral borders, two garden sheds and a greenhouse. It also has two brick outbuildings which include a garage, an outside toilet and a storage room.

“The farmland is all located within close proximity to the farm buildings and farmstead with every parcel having roadside access. The Montgomeryshire Canal passes through the land north to south. The land is all level in nature and forms some most useful blocks of productive and fertile pastureland,” added Mr Evans.

A range of farm outbuildings

The farm buildings include a galvanized iron barn, seven-bay framed cubicle and cattle shed with adjoining hay barn and a former milking parlour. There is also a former chicken battery house.
