This Farm Could Be Yours....for £1/year

Surely, got to be a better deal than the Russian one. Apparently more than 2K expressions of interest already.

No oldies.

Alas, I speak neither Russian nor Welsh.

Hmmm. Survived starting in Italy before I spoke the language (and Germany up to a point, though that wasn't quite starting from scratch). But those were different: in populated areas and office-based jobs, so I was hearing lots of the language and thus able to start learning.

So you get to live on a farm for a nominal rent, in exchange for having to work the land. So basically they are looking for a serf.

No more so than any other tenant farmer. Any profits you make from farming are your own as far as I can tell.

Love the idea of managing a farm for wildlife and getting subsidised for it... not so keen on having to "engage" with the 600,000 tourists each year.

I think they might demand animal husbandry skills, ecology skills and tourist management skills - that should reduce the number of applicants who are actually considered.

It is only 140 acres (albeit with additional grazing rights) - that isn't going to give a fantastic income...

And a 10 year tenancy - so as soon as you've sorted the place out and started to really make a living you'll get removed because they'll have decided to do something 'innovative' with the place.

Who needs an income if there's no rent to pay?

Could work nicely for someone my age. A ten year term bringing me within bridging distance of pension age, and ready to drop dead and be at one with the land if things are sufficiently bad.

Hmmm ....

Without wishing to do the National Trust's job for them, I suspect 99% of those simply take the train or cable car to the top and come back down or drive around it. Quite a bit of the Orme is quiet even in peak season.

You never done lambing? Too much like hard work for most people, especially with the weather round there.
