SUCCESSFULLY SOLD – FORGE FARM, BRIGHTLING

I am very happy to report that Forge Farm, between Brightling and Burwash in East Sussex, has been successfully sold by Lambert & Foster through their Mayfield Office.
 
Forge Farm is an amazing High Weald farm, extending to 66 acres with a mixture of woodland and pasture land.  It is in Organic Stewardship but the pasture, especially near to the stream, is alive with naturally occurring orchids.
 
 
There are the remnants of the old barn and milking byre.  There is a modern Dutch barn and lean-to.  It was rumoured that the foundations of an old iron masters house were still visible in the copse near the road.  However, I never found them!
 
Fortunately, when instructed to sell there were potential buyers in the “wings”.  They just fell in love with it and have just completed on the sale.  There are now some very contented sheep grazing the land.
 
So what did we sell it for?  Well, I cannot tell you.  The seller is very happy.  The buyers are chuffed to bits and Lambert & Foster think we did a good job.  Happy days!
