A well-kept residential farm with almost 140ac of dry land has come on the market in Co Down. The property is at Rossglass on the east coast of the county. It is two miles from Killough, five miles from Ardglass and seven miles from Downpatrick.

The farm has free-draining soils and a high sand content means land is dry throughout the year. When I visited the property last week, I walked the farm in a pair of trainers. It seemed remarkable given that at the same time, cattle were being re-housed in the west of the country due to wet conditions.
