The Land
Currently in mixed farming use the land is well managed and lies to the north of the original farm steading, adjoining a modern residential development and a number of individual rural dwellings and other land parcels. To the eastern boundary lies the A19 with access directly off, making the land extremely well positioned for access.
The land is a mix of grazing land including both temporary and permanent grass, arable land and a small element of woodland. The land is gently undulating providing some more sheltered areas for good grazing and a network of tracks, mature hedgerow boundaries and natural water supplies divide the parcels. A breakdown of the individual parcels including description and sizes can be found within the field schedule and identified on the enclosed plan.
