Property Development

Potter Group’s property division seeks to restore and nurture historic properties throughout Wales to ensure their continued use for many years to come.

The largest of these properties is the historic 300-acre Leighton Farm Estate, a unique collection of Grade II listed buildings perched amidst 300 acres of beautiful Powys countryside.

Formerly a Victorian model farm, Leighton is particularly notable for its scale and is comparable to the size of a small village.

Originally built between 1850 and 1856, the farm was widely known and celebrated for its pioneering use of rational farming methods, exhibiting some of the most innovative agricultural ideas in the country at the time.

Since 2011, it has been carefully redeveloped by the Potter family into an outstanding equine centre, with each listed building sympathetically restored and converted to the highest standards. The restoration of Leighton Farm is a long-term project and will continue for several years.

Leighton Farm also houses the acclaimed Yorton Stud Farm, one of the country’s fastest-growing stud operations. Yorton provides well-lit, spacious and ventilated stables, specialist CCTV-monitored foaling units and a range of paddocks suited to mares and young stock of different ages.

Yorton Stud Farm currently boasts a standing roster of some of the country’s most in-demand stallions with endorsements from Britain, Ireland and France.

Yorton continues to expand on the racecourse success of its graduates, as well as maintaining its key focus on sourcing and preparing quality young National Hunt horses that are ready to run.

Commercial & Industrial Lettings

The Group own commercial and industrial properties throughout Welshpool and Newtown, which are available to let through Towler Shaw Roberts (TSR) Surveyors in Shrewsbury.

The largest of these properties is the historically significant Pryce Jones Building in Newtown, the first of its kind in the world.

The building was originally constructed by the noted Welsh entrepreneur Sir Pryce Pryce-Jones in 1878 as The Royal Welsh Warehouse to house his pioneering mail order business selling locally produced flannel-based products to over 100,000 customers worldwide.

Potter Group acquired the Pryce Jones Building in 2016 and have since invested heavily in sympathetically refurbishing and redeveloping the building into an outstanding commercial space to provide a range of offices and retail units for local businesses.

The Pryce Jones Building is complemented by a portfolio of other commercial properties throughout Powys, including 25 commercial industrial units on the Mochdre, Vastre and Dyffryn Industrial Estates in Newtown ranging from 750 sq. ft to 100,000 sq. ft.

In Welshpool, The Group operate a 250,000 sq. ft multi-tenured factory space including commercial units and office suites, in addition to the Group’s head office.
