We look beyond the assets to understand your long-term aspirations

As advisors to some of the country’s largest and most notable landowners, we know the management of land or estates is time-consuming and complex. From farm tenancy negotiations and financial planning to residential development opportunities, we offer the full package. 

Our clients have a deep-rooted history which shapes who they are today. But modern political, familial, commercial and environmental change requires forward-thinking too. We respect the past whilst keeping a keen eye on the future.

Court Lodge Farm

The prestigious Cambridge college, Trinity Hall, was seeking to add a farm with development potential to its land and property portfolio. The 670-year-old college’s investment horizon stretches far into the future but in the meantime, its portfolio requires a solid income return. This purchase ticked all the boxes.

Since our involvement, we have proactively identified and implemented several development projects that benefit both the Estate and the local community.
