The enterprise includes a collection of 10 holiday cottages, farmhouse and 200 acres of land

H&H Land & Estates has launched to market Meikle Richorn Holiday Cottages and land, situated near Dalbeattie.

This sale consists of a collection of 10 holiday cottages, a detached six-bedroom farmhouse, over 200 acres of land and planning permission for further development.

With panoramic views over the Urr Water, Meikle Richorn Farm would provide buyers with the opportunity to capitalise on an already thriving tourism business and farming enterprise, with the potential to expand.

Located in a beautiful and unspoilt setting, Meikle Richorn’s 2, 3, and 5-bedroom cottages are in the main, converted traditional barns.

Heated by a 199kwh biomass system, each has its own private outdoor space and its own hot tub.

With a current turnover of £250k, this highly successful and well-established business already has an existing and loyal client base.

This extensive property is available as a whole or in two separate lots, and is guided at £3,500,000 for Lots 1 and 2 combined.

Lot 1 includes the 6-bed farmhouse and 10 holiday cottages, set in 67.73 acres, along with buildings, gardens, and roadways. The 28.66 acres of woodland with planning permission for six chalets is also included.

Lot 2 includes 172.24 acres of 3:2 to 5:2 grade land, with two modern farm buildings. The land is suitable for livestock grazing or fodder production. It is currently let out along with the two large modern farm buildings.

Retaining many original features, charm, and character, the large, traditional six-bedroom farmhouse is double fronted and could also provide additional accommodation.

Glenn Howard of H&H Land & Estates said: “More and more people are looking for changes to their lifestyles now and are seeking space. This property offers both in abundance.

"Developments including such sizable acreages and with such potential are a rarity in themselves, especially ones which boast such a scenic position."
