Adding Value to Land and Estates
Our skill is to recognise, maximise and realise the true value of your assets by drawing on our deep market knowledge and expertise in land and estate management.
‘One size fits all’ is not a phrase we are familiar with. Our clients’ interests range from racehorses to red grouse – and all that entails.
We like to put our boots on and get stuck in - whether that’s to walk a salmon fishing beat or the site boundary of a potential new housing development. We love a challenge – whatever shape it takes.
The rural environment and the intricacies of such is in our blood, which means we know how to get the most from your assets, as diverse as they may be. We understand the policies that shape it and the markets which drive it.
Our in-house experts specialise in many areas such as leisure, tourism, heritage, diversification, renewable energy, planning, valuation and so much more. We pool their knowledge so you have confidence that we can bring your plans to fruition.
Our vision and creativity are as broad as you need. We’ve helped clients consolidate and commercialise, evolve and grow.

Biodiversity Net Gain
Incoming legislation demands a 10% gain in biodiversity on all new development schemes in England. Environmental enhancement is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ – it’s mandatory.
However a compulsory purchase order arises, an experienced, informed and coherent view is essential to understand your particular situation and ensure optimum compensation for any loss accrued during the process.
Renewable Energy – the opportunities for landowners
We have been helping landowners realise the full potential of renewable technologies for almost 30 years and we continue to deliver new and exciting projects in this evolving environment.
The world of farming is changing fast with traditional activities being replaced by an array of modern opportunities. Our analytical and inventive approach will open them up to you.
