This traditional estate farm has been enjoyed by the same family for 200 years. It was originally a tenanted dairy farm with a typical mixture of land use to service the herd; in more recent years some of the land has been cultivated for arable crops and grazed, and the extensive farm buildings used to rear beef cattle. The farm sits in a secluded position surrounded by its own land, offering far-reaching views of the surrounding landscape and Mendip Hills. The farmhouse and buildings are approached down a long tree-lined driveway from Rankers Lane, offering privacy and protection. Wick Farm is a wonderful example of a residential mixed farm with considerable opportunities to modernise, expand and further develop for agricultural or alternative uses, subject to the necessary planning consents.
