Abbots Ripton Farming Company (ARFCO)

Property

The Estate has a varied range of residential and commercial properties available to let. Please Contact Us for further information.

The village is an attractive mixture of old and new and is a designated Conservation Area. Many of the thatched cottages date from the 17th century while the church is early mediaeval. Several buildings with a common architectural style are Edwardian in character. These generally have white painted brickwork with red tiled roofs and detailed features include hipped porches, bargeboards and dormers. The stable block opposite Abbots Ripton Hall is an example, as are Hall Lane Cottages, Moat Cottages and the Village Post office. The Abbots Ripton Hall dates from 1720 and in Victorian times was added to by Salvin. Modern secular buildings which reflect the character of the village architecture are the  thriving Primary School and the Village Hall both designed by Peter Foster the Surveyor to the Fabric of Westminster Abbey.

The Parish is well served by both public and permissive footpaths and bridleways, but no specifically designated cycle ways. This access gives many opportunities to see the conservation of nature in action, from the flocks of geese and duck which populate the small reservoirs owned by the Estate, to roe deer, muntjac and chinese water deer. A detailed record of fauna and flora is kept by the Estate and includes many migratory birds as well as buzzards, sparrow hawks, red kites, grebes, pheasants and partridges. The extensive woodlands provide a home for a range of different wild life such as 3 species of owls, rare butterflies and over 90 plants.
Also the footpath network provides an opportunity for people to understand the inter-relationship between working arable farms and nature. This adds significantly to the character of the Parish and is welcomed by all giving local support for the countryside management.
The village or Great Green in Abbots Ripton is a large open space which is accessible to all and is next to the cricket field in which the village hall stands doubling up as a pavilion. Also opposite the Post Office there is the Jubilee garden next to St Andrew's churchyard, opened in 1983 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
