Beggars Bush, Presteigne, Presteigne


Guide price

A block of approximately 33.16 acres of mixed, permanent pasture and woodland. Found with roadside access in the hamlet of Beggars Bush. To be sold as 1 lot by private treaty.


Forming part of Penoffa Farm this block of approximately 33.16 Acres are to be sold by private treaty as one lot. The land is mainly permanent pasture and has an area of replanted woodland. One of the parcels is accessed via a bridleway off the country lane otherwise the land is mainly found as one ring fence.

One of the attractive features is that the Offa's Dyke passes over the land, a linear earthwork which roughly divides the English/Welsh Border. It is believed that the structure is named after the Anglo Saxon king of Mercia, Offa, from AD757 until AD796, who ordered its construction, although its precise original use is debated, it did de-lineate the border between Anglian Mercia and The Welsh Kingdom of Powys. This lies alongside the farmstead and is very popular with walkers and tourists.

The property has mainly been grazed with sheep over the past few years and is well fenced.
