Rural Property and Land Sales

We specialise in the marketing of a wide range of rural property including houses, residential small holdings, farms and land. We are dedicated to providing a high level of customer care whilst maximising the value of your property through a personally tailored service and strategic marketing. Whether selling or helping to buy, we offer a complete package based upon many years experience and knowledge in the property market of North and West Yorkshire and East Lancashire.

Experience that counts

Roger Harper and Matthew Binns have extensive expertise in rural property. David Hill has developed a loyal client base who often return to us with repeat business.

Our residential department is managed by Roger who you can contact for a free, no obligation marketing appraisal of your property. Not only does this give you free valuation and marketing advice, it gives the opportunity for you to meet our residential team. We believe that the relationship with your agent when selling your property is very important and we are confident that our experience and practical approach will assist in achieving the best price for your property.  

Marketing that works

To achieve success the marketing has to be right and we work hard to ensure we are in touch with prospective purchasers. Your property will be presented on our website, which is updated daily and has a direct feed to ‘’. This is complemented with our extensive mailing list. We also produce a choice of quality sales particulars, and where appropriate local and regional newspaper advertising. For more information please see our detailed Selling Your Property page.

Farms & agricultural land market forges ahead

We are pleased that this sector of the property market remains buoyant, with agricultural land holding its value and turnover of sales remaining high. The sale of agricultural property is a specialist area which requires experts in the field in order to maximise value. At David Hill we pride ourselves on having extensive local knowledge and many years experience in this area. We have often identified development potential where others haven’t, and can draw on our wealth of experience in lotting farms and land to make it available to the broadest market and achieve best price. We will also guide you through the different methods of sale which may be most appropriate to you.

Sales of farms and agricultural land often interact with other matters, such as the Single Payment Scheme and Environmental Stewardship. We can provide advice and complete the transfer of Single Payment entitlements and Stewardship agreements. More details on this can be found on our Grants and Subsidies page. Sales also often have tax implications, and we are familiar with working with professional advisors to ensure reliefs are maximised and your interests protected. Should you decide not to sell, or you have recently purchased land, we also offer a Rural Property Management service.    

Overcoming the difficult hurdles

In recent years the use of land for equestrian purposes has increased, either on a commercial basis or for leisure use. With this increased use we have developed a niche service in relation to equestrian property and smallholdings. Our background in the marketing of farms, agricultural land and residential property combined with our planning expertise means that our team is well-placed to offer a unique service to equestrian landowners.
