Winner Hill Farm represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a Cotswold farm with a traditional five bedroom Cotswold stone farmhouse (with agricultural occupancy restriction), Owl Lodge, a three bedroom detached house with separate access, outbuildings, established vineyard and pasture land extending in all to approximately 64 acres. For sale as a whole or in three lots.
The farmyard is set back behind Owl Lodge, with its own access points off the local lane. There is a diverse range of buildings including a traditional cart shed, a concrete block workshop and pole barn. There is potential to convert the farm buildings subject to the necessary consents. Planning permission has been granted to build a winery.
The vines were first planted in 2002 and have produced wine since 2006. The success of the original vines (0.5 acre) led to further planting, the newer vines will be ready for productive picking in 2021, in all about 1.5 acres. Grape varieties include Seyval Blanc, Bacchus, Regent Dornfelder and Reichensteiner which produce rose, red and both white and sparkling English wines. The vineyard is run as a successful award-winning business by the current owners and could easily be extended.
Winner Hill is positioned in the pretty village of Alderley on the edge of the Cotswold Escarpment. The farm has exceptional views to the west over the Berkeley Vale and beyond the River Severn and is situated in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
