Diverse Farm Portfolio With 10 Holiday Cottages Presents Fantastic Lifestyle Opportunity

Located in a rural coastal position around three miles from Dalbeattie, and around two miles above the coastal village of Kippford is a diverse farm portfolio extending to some 238 acres.  

Meikle Richorn Farm and Holiday Cottages offers a fantastic lifestyle purchase for the discerning buyer to create a successful diversified farming business, as it goes on sale through leading property consultants Galbraith.

The property is for sale as a whole or in four lots. The traditional six-bedroom farmhouse has served as the family’s centre of operations, with the successful holiday let business being created out of 10 cottages converted from the original farm steadings in 2007 - 2011. The farmhouse was previously subdivided and could be easily split to create an annexe or additional accommodation for a holiday let manager.

The holiday cottages range from two to five bedrooms and many enjoy far reaching views of the Urr Estuary. There is an enclosed outdoor area and each property benefits from its own hot tub. A linen store allows for a swift turnover and management of the holiday properties.

Planning permission was also granted in 2010 for the creation of a sympathetic development of six holiday chalets nestled in the undulating land located at the centre of the farm, adjacent to the farm steading, all positioned to take advantage of the stunning views of the Estuary.

Around 172 acres of farm land and modern buildings are for sale as one lot. This parcel of land is arranged in a horseshoe following the curvature of the Urr Water. The area is known for early grass growing and mild winters due to the Gulf Stream and is well suited to stock rearing or fodder production. There are also two excellent modern farm buildings, a cattle shed and a large general purpose shed with workshop and storage area.

David Corrie, handling the sale for Galbraith, said:

The sale of Meikle Richorn Farm and Holiday Cottages presents a truly fantastic lifestyle opportunity. Given its successful holiday let business and potential to expand this even further, combined with the farming aspect of the sale with good quality land for fodder production and animal grazing, we expect interest from many parties keen to establish a diversified farm enterprise in beautiful Dumfries & Galloway.

Properties of this nature do not come on to the open market regularly and with many people currently reconsidering their present lifestyle, it makes for a very exciting lifestyle prospect indeed.
