Three Gates Farm comprises a well-equipped residential dairy holding occupying an attractive rural location on the outskirts of the village of Leigh near Sherborne in Dorset. The farm is serviced by an attractive and spacious four bedroom period farmhouse and an extensive range of versatile modern farm buildings that have been developed to service a 250 cow dairy unit. Additional buildings provide housing for fodder, followers and young stock. In addition, there is a stable block and traditional barns which offer further potential for alternative uses. Adjoining the house and buildings and lying within a ring fence is a productive block of generally level pasture, ideal to service the dairy unit. Lying within the land is an enclosure of willow beds and ponds that add to the wildlife and amenity of the holding. In total the farm extends to 202 acres or thereabouts.
The farm lies within a ring fence and is made up of a number of good sized enclosures, the majority of which are serviced by a mains water supply, and all of which are fenced. The land has all been sown to short and long term pasture leys. Access to the land is via a central farm track, part of which is concreted. Field OS 1460 (which is offered as separate lot) enjoys a separate right of access off the adjoining Council maintained road. Due to previous activities on the holding, there are a number of stock shelters positioned around the farm. The farm also enjoys the benefit of an attractive pond situated in field OS 7083 and in addition there are some nine interconnecting ponds which have been planted with willows to provide an extensive habitat for a wide range of wildlife. In all, this good grass growing holding would support a number of different livestock or equestrian enterprises.
