For Sale by Private Treaty
McCartneys are grateful to be favoured with instructions to offer for sale a most productive livestock rearing
holding known as Cefncalonog located in the unspoilt Shropshire/Powys borderland, an area noted for the
production of top quality sheep and suckler beef cattle. The sale of Cefncalonog presents the rare opportunity
to purchase a fully equipped and sound holding of the calibre and size which rarely arises in this part of the world.
Cefncalonog comprises a substantial six bedroom Farmhouse and adjoining Annex, Modern & Traditional Farm Buildings together with 328 acres (or thereabouts) of sound Pasture Land.
As well as traditional livestock production, the holding offers diversification opportunities including conversion, potentially, of the traditional farm buildings and letting of the 2 bedroom annex accommodation.
The farm is on the market by Private Treaty and enquiries should be made to McCartneys Knighton office.
Cefncalonog is situated two miles north of the village of Newcastle on Clun which offers amenities including a primary school and public house. The larger village of Clun is some 6 miles distant and offers a larger range of facilities including grocery shops, butchers shop, post office, public houses, garage and primary school. The nearest secondary school is situated at Bishops Castle being 11 miles away. The farm is located within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and enjoys views across far reaching unspoilt countryside.

The homestead is reached after travelling along the driveway for approximately 400 metres.
From Newtown: Take the A489 towards Kerry. After passing through Kerry take the right hand turn onto the B4368 signposted for Clun. Continue along the road until you reach Newcastle. In Newcastle take the left hand turn signposted Two Crosses and Mainstone rather than continuing on the B4368 which veers right.

- The Land
In all the land amounts to 328 acres of pasture land which with the exception of one field is all within a ring fence and benefits from a natural water supply via the Folly Brook and its tributaries. The land is served by a concrete and stone roadway which runs through the land from north to south. The road also acts as the farm driveway with Cefncalonog homestead situated in the heart of the land. The land runs from 270 metres above sea level at the farms southern end to 460 metres above sea level at the northern boundary. The majority of the land is gently sloping with much of it being suitable for mowing for hay or silage as well as there being some steeper slopes. The land is in good heart and is an upland unit typical of this area of border country. It is ideally suited to mixed livestock farming where sheep and beef cattle of the highest quality can be reared. The land is contained within the following schedule:-
