18th century farm on the market for first time in more than a century

Savills has launched the sale of an 18th century farm in Settle, which is believed to be the first time it has been brought to the market for more than 100 years.

Rome Farm in Giggleswick is a productive livestock farm in the Craven District that dates back to the early 1700s.

Set against the backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the farm itself extends to about 350 acres in total and is available as a whole at a guide price of £3.6m, or in six lots.

Comprising three dwellings – one of which is Grade II listed – and an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings, Rome Farm has been owned and run by the vendors’ family for over 100 years.

In recent years they have diversified to equestrian livery accommodation and haylage production – with some of the livestock buildings re-purposed for equestrian use, including stabling and an indoor school.

Will Douglas, farm agent at Savills, said: “The setting of this farm, coupled with its period charm is wonderful.

“With the extensive residential properties on offer, Rome Farm provides an exciting and significant range of traditional farm buildings that are ripe for a diversification or conversion, subject to the necessary consents.”
