ABOUT US

Stanley Wright was created in 2011 out of the need for an independent voice to address the concerns of property owners with considerable rural assets. Managing these assets in a professional manner that yields long-term benefits clearly required a bespoke approach: so, Stanley Wright was born. Focused on our client’s requirements, we provide tailor-made advice and high-quality services across a range of disciplines to address the issues faced by owners of property and other rural assets. 
 
Our core business is the day-to-day management of traditional country estates, where we mix conventional management with a modern and innovative approach.  We act for individuals, families, trusts and companies with tenanted and in hand farms, let properties, heritage assets, sporting, renewables, forestry and diversified businesses. 

 

We are Chartered Surveyors offering a comprehensive range of services from project management to valuations and strategic estate reviews. A highly experienced and dedicated team deliver key ancillary services from accounting and bookkeeping, to mapping and compliance. Extending all the benefits of a smaller, tight-knit team, Stanley Wright puts our clients’ best interests at the heart of its activity.

 

We are trusted in managing in excess of 150,000 acres, 60 tenanted farms, 100 let residential dwellings, over 100 commercial lettings, 15 miles of salmon fishing and consulting on many more.
