Whilst i fully understand the theory of prices being bumped what should we do ???

I would call their bluff and say you've got options elsewhere for cheaper.

Our house is the hole in the polo owned by this woman ,options don't come into it !!!!!!!!!

We are like that too, that is why we have two separate parcels of land we rent within 3 miles of home.
Why not have a look at our smallholding - www.wthanonline.co.uk

70 / acre for a small parcel of sheep grazing seems a lot to me, but it depends on how much you want it and more importantly, how much someone else would want it.


To be honest unless you can get a cut of hay off it that price will knock the profit out of it for you.

That really depends on how close it is to the rest of your land, fencing, water, how much you want it and who else might be interested.


Most owners of small parcels of land are happy to have someone keep it tidy. Don't forget that topping will cost the landowner every year and won't make such a good job as sheep.


They may get more money renting to a horse owner but horses mean poaching, docks, untidy electric fencing and horse owners  ;)

Don't tar every horse owner with the same brush!
If a rental gets in such a state as you describe, it's the owner's fault for not stepping in and laying the law down, or stipulating maintenance requirements in the agreement!
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.  ~Douglas Adams
