I've seen it happen many times. People buy into their dreams with a bit of land when they retire. The land they have is too much as they grow older, but too little for any neighbouring farmer to rent or take a crop of hay off. They have then added the worry of the land and what to do with it.
As my OH and I get older the upkeep of our big garden in a very rural setting is becoming onerous. We are seriously thinking about moving to where there is a nearby station, shops, bus route and hospital for when we can't drive. Horrible, getting old isn't it?
