297.9 acres, Lindholme Farm, Lindholme, Hatfield, Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Under Offer - For Sale £2,250,000

Lindholme Farm extends to approximately 297.90 acres (120.56 hectares). The property is a former airfield which has been returned to arable use. The land offered has the substantial benefit of a tarmac access road. In addition to the arable land there are two small woodland shelter belts and a lake. In addition, we are separately marketing approximately 17.03 hectares (42 acres) of arable land immediately to the south of this property to let on a three-year FBT commencing on the 11th October 2019, subject to holdover for the clearance of the growing crop. Further details are available on request.

Located in South Yorkshire, 7 miles east of Doncaster City and only 4 miles by road from the M18 and M180 intersection, the property is well positioned and offers good access to the road network. The nearest postcode is DN7 6BX.

The soil is light and easily workable in nature. It is shown as non-agricultural on Natural England's Agricultural Land Classification Plan as the site is a former airfield.

The lake provides a significant diversification opportunity or could be utilised with the current agricultural holding. The 2.9 acre horseshoe shaped lake could provide a significant number of fishing pegs. Situated to the north of the lake is an area of hard standing. We are not aware of the detail of current fish stocks, if any.

The timber situated around the lake would offer good mitigation from the visual impact of any diversification around the lake.

Any diversification from agricultural use is subject to obtaining the relevant planning permission. Interested parties should make their own enquiries with the local planning authority.

The land will be available for occupation following the clearance of the current crop of maize.

Exchange of contracts will take place as soon as possible following the acceptance of an offer. A 10% deposit will be payable on exchange. Early entry may be available on payment of a double deposit, provided the current crop has been cleared.

Entitlements are not available with the purchase. We believe the property is registered with the Rural Land Register.

The property is freehold and vacant possession with be provided on completion, subject to holdover. A restrictive covenant will be applied by the seller limiting the use of the property to agriculture. This will not prohibit the erection of agricultural buildings. The lake and immediately surrounding area will not be included within this covenant and nor will the access to it.

As a condition of sale, the buyer will install secure gates at the access points to the public highway or close them off permanently. These should be to a standard similar to the existing gate to Moor Dyke Road. As a minimum this must include the gate providing access to the A614 which will be utilised by the new Right of Way as defined below. The buyer should also seek to prevent any unlawful access to the land. These conditions are to protect the security of HMP Moorland.

The property is sold subject to and with the help and benefit of all existing rights, including rights of way, whether public or private, light, support, drainage, water and electricity supplies and other rights, easements, quasi-easements and all wayleaves whether referred to or not in these particulars. We identify a number of Rights of Way and exclusions. There is a new Right of Way to be created from the A614 to the retained land, being the 17.03 hectares (42 acres) offered to let. This will be along the existing access track. There are new Rights of Way to be created to provide access to the Gas Compound and adjoining land offered for sale from Moor Dyke Road and to Vulcan Way. This will be along the existing access track and will be subject to a clause for contribution towards proportionate repair costs. Mineral rights are excluded from the freehold. Compensation provisions are in place should such rights be utilised. There are a number of utility assets crossing the property.
