One of the most important commercial farms in East Anglia, the estate is situated between the towns of March and Wisbech and close to the Norfolk border and extends to approximately 4,179 acres (1,691 hectares).

The Estate hosts a truly commercial farming enterprise with minimal amenity land, woodland or other land uses. The arable area amounts to approximately 3,941 acres (1,595 hectares) with the balance being farm buildings, pasture land, reservoirs and spinneys/scrubland, ponds and drains.

The majority of the land is classified as grade 1 on the Provisional Agricultural Land Classification Map, with the remainder being grade 2. The rich alluvial soils are perfectly suited for growing cereals, oil seed crops and more specialist produce, including potatoes, field vegetables, onions and sugar beet.

The land is serviced by extensive farm buildings, two reservoirs with a total storage capacity of 230,000m3, three summer abstraction licences and two underground irrigation mains.

There has been significant investment in the infrastructure in recent years and the crop storage facilities include approximately 8,300

tonnes of grain storage, the majority of which benefits from drying floors, and 4,060 tonnes of ambient potato storage.

The residential portfolio comprises the principal house, Coldham Hall, along with Hall Farmhouse and a further 13 cottages which lie either adjacent to the farmsteads or in the village of Coldham.

There are also a number of renewable energy income streams through lease arrangements including 14 wind turbines and a soon to

be constructed ground mounted solar farm. There is roof mounted solar on the modern crop storage buildings.

The Coldham Estate is available as a whole or in three lots:
