Communications in the area are excellent with direct rail links to London available from both Newark and Nottingham. The M1 motorway is around 7 miles to the west and the A1 around 19 miles to the east.

The Farm
Lindhurst Farm extends to about 400.31 acres (162.hectares) with all the land mainly lying within a ring fence. An adjacent 60 acres could be available to rent if required.

There are two pairs of semi-detached, 3 bed cottages located on the western side of the holding with far reaching views over the surrounding Nottinghamshire countryside. Each cottage benefits from its own waste water treatment plant, fitted in November 2019. A 4kw solar array is located on the roof of Numbers 1&2 cottages, with the supply linked to Number 2, and benefits from FiT payments of around £2,000pa. All of the cottages have good sized gardens to the rear.

The farm buildings are also located on the western side of the farm and can be accessed either from the track to the west of the farm or the central spine roadway from the east.

In total the farm buildings extend to approximately 27,000 square feet and provide extensive storage facilities. They form a combination of former livestock and arable buildings including a more modern general purpose machinery store.

The farmland is classified as being Grade 3 under the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Foods Provisional land classification plans. The Soil Survey of England and Wales records the soils on the farm as being of the Cuckney 1 association. These soils are described as well drained, sandy and coarse loamy soils and suitable for the growing of cereals, sugar beet and potatoes.

The field enclosures are easily accessible from the central spine road running in an east west direction across the farm. The topography of the land is gently undulating and the enclosures are of a suitable size for modern farming methods.

Located within the farm are several parcels of woodland and ponds including the Rainworth Lakes SSSI which add to the general amenity of the holding.

Recent livestock on the farm includes a 1,400 pig finishing unit and routinely overwintered 1,500 lambs on stubble turnips, all of which will have benefitted the arable rotation. The soil types lend themselves to outdoor livestock production.
