Deer farm changing hands after a century for £2.6m

A Cotswold farm which has been in the same family for more than a century and houses a herd of red deer is on the market for £2.6million.

Boldridge Farm in the village of Long Newnton, near Tetbury, was a part of the Estcourt Estate before it was bought by the Witchell family in 1924.

The family had been tenants of the farm since 1907 and parts of the farmhouse is believed to date back to the 1850s.

Built of Cotswold stone, the farmhouse has distinctive red scalloped roof tiles and spacious accommodation in a three-bedroom house and one-bedroom annexe but provides a great opportunity to re-orientate to provide a wonderful family home. The house is not listed.

The four-bedroom Boldridge Farm Cottage is thought to date to the 1830s and was extended in the latter part of the 20th century to provide larger accommodation with an attractive sheltered garden with mature borders and further fruit and vegetable gardens.

There is further accommodation in the shape of Boldridge Bungalow which was built in 1970 and is subject to an agricultural occupancy condition.

A range of traditional and modern farm buildings offer development potential, subject to the necessary planning permission.

Deer have been farmed at Boldridge since a herd was established using bloodlines from the Badminton Estate in 1989 with venison supplied to local butcher.

The herd is available by separate negotiation with property viewing by appointment only with Savills.
