Barfrestone Court Farm historically known as Hartanger provides purchasers with an opportunity to acquire a compact, yet well-equipped farm, the majority of which is within a ring-fence. Closest to the quiet village of Barfrestone lies the farmhouse sitting with a large garden, formal to the front and paddocks to the rear, immediately adjacent are traditional buildings and beyond these the farm buildings, benefitting from a separate access. A large portion of the farmland lies within the valley immediately to the south of the farmyard running to Long Lane. In addition are three separate land parcels lying within close proximity of the main land parcel. The land has been farmed within an arable rotation, but latterly has all been laid to pasture.
The farm is now for sale as a whole or in up to three separate lots.
The farm is situated in the county of Kent on the fringe of the small village of Barfrestone affording a secluded yet accessible location. The larger village of Shepherdswell is located approximately 1 ½ miles to the south and provides a range of local amenities and facilities, including a village store, pub and a primary school. Canterbury City centre is approximately 11 miles away and offers a high-speed train service to London, taking less than an hour. Canterbury also offers an extensive range of facilities and a comprehensive range of public and private schools. The A2 dual carriageway is easily accessed and offers connections to the wider motorway network, along with the Dover port.
Barfrestone Court Farm extends to approximately 76.87 acres (31.11 hectares) excluding the farmyard, tracks and residential property. The land is classified as Grade II & III on the Agricultural Land Classification Series for England and Wales. The soils are characterised as being freely draining, lime rich, loamy soils capable of growing a range of cereal and other crops.
