David Doyle, of JP&M Doyle, said: “Kilbaylet is a smashing holding with a smart farmyard and the potential to renovate the derelict residence.

  • A silage pit.

The land is of good quality, laid out in good sized divisions currently in grassland and benefiting from natural drainage. The boundaries are lined by mature trees and hedges, and the land is ideally suited to all types of farming or equestrian pursuits.
