Overview Of the Estate:- 500 Acres of Beautiful Dales Countryside.
Owned by the Armstrong Family and not reportable to shareholders.
Within Family ownership for generations, the estate has changed hugely and is barely recognizable from when it was actually a tank depot during the war.
We are so proud of our beautiful Estate and are so blessed to be involved in the area and support local businesses with our #thinklocalbuylocal approach and support generations of people in employment on and around the estate. Our building program has continued with the same team for over 30 years now and we have many plans afoot to continue our sustainable expansion.
We employ over 50 people in and around the Estate and keeping it maintained and operationally run is no easy task. We have every faith in our team who have a “One Estate, One Team” naturally instilled to really make Tupgill Estate welcoming for our visitors 365 days of the year.
