A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial block of prime agricultural land within the sought after North West Herefordshire area.


The land is located about 14 miles North West of Hereford and about 6 miles from the town of Hay-on-Wye.

Located about mile East of Eardisley Village and lying to the immediate south side of the Eardisley to Almeley Road in the heart of North West Herefordshire.

The Land

About 80.75 acres (32.68ha) of fertile gently sloping and flat agricultural land with the benefit of roadside frontage and two watercourses. The land offers some true North West Herefordshire character and beautiful views.

At present the fields are down to grass, however with the exception of fields 8599, 9384, the old Railway line and the woodland, all of the land has previously been arable cropped to include crops of winter wheat, maize, oilseed rape and potatoes with potatoes last planted in 2003.

At present the fields are divided into six main parcels, however there could be potential to increase field sizes by removing some internal fence lines. This attractive block of land is further enhanced with the added character of the former Railway line, small woodland, mature boundaries and far reaching views.


The land benefits from two natural streams running throughout and we believe the land also has a water main within the land along the northern road frontage. Two electricity lines cross the land.
