Much of Chittlegrove formerly comprised part of the Rendcomb Park Estate. The "offlying portions", including Chittlegrove, were auctioned by the current Selling Agents in 1914. The farm is situated in a wonderful landscape in the Cotswold Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is centred on Chittlegrove Farmhouse, which was constructed in about 1929 in the Arts and Crafts style to the design of the well-known local Architect, Vincent Alexander Lawson.

The farmhouse is approached from The Whiteway over a private drive which passes the Chittlegrove Farm Cottages and the farm buildings on the left.

The sale provides a rare opportunity to purchase an attractive and diverse Cotswolds residential farm with considerable sporting and amenity appeal in addition to its agricultural attributes.

The farmland, extending to 450.13 acres, is in arable production or temporary herbal stewardship grass, which is farmed under a contracting arrangement. The cropping for the 2020 arable harvest comprises winter wheat, winter & spring barley, winter oilseed rape, spring linseed and temporary grass. There are also numerous environmental plantings under a Countryside Stewardship Agreement with Natural England.

The woodlands, in a number of plantations extending to 13.03 acres, are scattered across the farmland in an attractive setting. They comprise a mix of native hardwoods and conifers which provide considerable sporting and amenity appeal.

A successful small shoot has been run on the farm by the Seller's family.

In all about 471.41 acres (190.74 hectares).

Further land is available.
