A substantial, 22 acre stretch of stunning grassland, woodland and riverbank, complete with fishing rights, has just been released for sale and will appeal to anyone wanting their own piece of tranquillity on the River Wharfe near Ilkley.

The land is located to the west of the hamlet of Nesfield, just off West Hall Lane, which runs from Ilkley to Beamsley, and is for sale with Dacre, Son & Hartley’s specialist agricultural division.

It is being sold in two lots consisting of 4.4 acres of grazing land which is priced at £40,000. The second lot covers 17.74 acres in total and is on the market for £80,000. It consists of 10 acres of grazing land, 5 acres of woodland and the remainder is river and riverbank with more than 300 metres of fishing rights.

Ian Cox, a director from Dacre, Son & Hartley, who heads up the firm’s agricultural team, said: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful stretch of rural Wharfedale. As well as appealing to livestock farmers, it will also attract interest from anyone wanting a private area of scenic countryside that has the added benefit of river access and extensive fishing rights.”
