PFK has received the green light to develop their own land at Mile Lane, Penrith, for its new head office.

Andrew Green, Managing Director, said that they are 'delighted' with the 'great result'.

Mr Green said: “We are delighted to have worked closely with the newly formed planning department at Westmorland and Furness Council in achieving a great result that will enable us to invest again in our local area and economy.

"PFK is 150 years old in 2026 and is proud to employ local people advising a raft of clients across our Rural and Estate Agency departments.

"This will allow us to continue to support our local farmers by vacating substantial space at the auction mart which has allowed us to continue to develop Skirsgill as a significant agricultural hub in partnership with David Crowden, Andrew Maughan and all the team at Penrith and District Farmers’ Mart (PDFM).

"The development of the fully owned site perfectly aligns with our long-term strategy and will significantly enhance shareholder value moving forward."

With the move, PFK aim to support their highly valued farmer client base from their Skirsgill office, through Rural Director Jo Edwards, and also from their office at Edenhall with Directors John Robson and Julie Liddle, and the whole of the team.

PFK Estate Agency has been awarded Gold in the EA Masters Best Estate Agency guide 2024 for Sales and Lettings, and has also received a nomination for Regional Agency of the Year: North East & North West in The Negotiator Awards.
