A "CUTTING-edge" dairy farm on the edge of the Lake District is up for sale for £1,880,000.

Whitbarrow Farm, at Berrier, overlooking the Eden Valley near Penrith, features robotic technology, modern farm buildings, a traditional farmhouse running as a successful bed-and-breakfast, and a modern bungalow.

The agents, H&H Land and Property, say the 200-acre dairy farm is believed to be the first complete with robotic milking systems to be brought to the market in Cumbria.

The farm, on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park, is available by private treaty with an overall guide price in the region of £1,880,000. It is being offered for sale as a whole or in four lots.

Thomas Armstrong, associate director at H&H Land and Property, said: "For those seeking a future in the dairy industry, they need look no further, as this is a dairy farm which has already embraced futuristic technology."

He added: "Currently we are finding the market for farms across Cumbria to be very good with demand exceeding supply, and as Whitbarrow is such a productive farm, ready for the buyer to simply move in and begin farming, we are expecting a keen interest.”
