Excluded from the overage are agricultural or equestrian buildings and improvements to the farmhouse. Further details upon request from the auctioneers/agents.

Special Conditions of Sale

The property will be sold subject to the Special Conditions of Sale, copies of which may be inspected at the Vendor’s solicitors or auctioneers offices 7 days prior to the date of the sale.

Additional Information

Details regarding the overage provision and fees are provided within the Special Conditions of Sale. Although the property lies within the “Green Belt”, there is a historical precedent on three separate occasions for releasing small parcels of land adjoining Cemetery Road to permit a single house for bungalow to be built. Sufficient space remains along the border with Cemetery Road for at least one, and probably two, such plots, provided that approval for release could be obtained.


By appointment only. Please contact Wilbys using the details below for viewing arrangements. It should be noted the residence and outbuildings are in a state of disrepair and the land is steep. The greatest of care is required when viewing, and interested parties inspect at their own risk. The Vendors and their Agents accept no liability for any injury or damage which might arise. Children will not be permitted to accompany viewing parties.


The farmhouse may be accessed from Holmfirth Town Centre by two different routes, leading separately to the top and bottom yards of the farm. Each of these routes is a single narrow roadway typical of the Holme Valley. Two other rights of way are shown on the Deeds to the property. Details are indicated on the attached plan. At present, the turning and parking areas are very limited. Viewing can be made on foot from Holmfirth Town centre or from nearby roads. Further details are available from the agents.
