Located behind the farmhouse and farm buildings and accessed via the main farm drive is a ringfenced block of pasture extending in all to 35.19 acres (14.25 ha). Historically the land has been used for grazing cattle. The land is flat in nature and bordered predominantly by hedgerows. The farmland is all Grade 3 and lends itself to livestock grazing and hay/silage making, with plenty of buildings to service the use of the land. The land and buildings also offer significant potential for equestrian or amenity uses (subject to the necessary planning consents). At the centre of the block of land is the remains of a medieval moat, around field no. 3433. This is listed as a Scheduled Monument.
Common grazing rights are to be confirmed, and will be included within the sale.
There is an additional 11.95 acres available separately (Lot 2).
