Hi all,

New here although I was on here 15 years ago when I was farming.
I am looking for a smallholding and a farmhouse on the same land to rent in the Bristol/South West area but with some many websites all leading to nowhere it seems, Im struggling.

Could one of you good folks please point me in the right direction of where to start to look for a small holding with a farm house to lease? I'm looking for something long term.

I hope you are all well.

Kind regards.

I’d try the agricultural land agents.  (Kivells for one, covers most of the south west, but there’ll be local agencies across the regions.  Eg., Nancekivell for Exmoor.)  They’ll be handling farm tenancies etc., and would be most likely to be handling any smallholding lettings. And check with the county councils if they have any county smallholdings or small farms they let out, and where they advertise when they do.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

We found our smallholding through GTH. They cover Somerset and Devon. Ours was freehold not leasehold but if there are any for rent GTH may well be dealing with them. They are very helpful and knowledgeable about  agricultural tenancies so well worth giving them a ring.
