The pasture land totals about 35.5 acres within four enclosures with a level paddock on the western boundary with a gate onto Horridge Lane, and the remainder sloping down into the valley, part of which is south-facing and suitable for mowing as well as grazing. There are about 7 acres of scrub / gorse which is suitable for grazing, but could be improved back to grass.
The woodland lies in a very pretty sheltered valley with a stream flowing along the eastern boundary and the Hollocombe Brook along most of the southern boundary.
The trees are mostly deciduous and include some mature native oak and beech trees and there is a track running through the wood allowing good access throughout. There is a predominantly south-east facing aspect and during the spring months there is a carpet of bluebells and primroses.SERVICES
