LOT 3 OF 4
The land consists of a combination of pasture and arable/temporary grassland, with a small area of lower lying land and woodland.
Located on both sides of a southern facing valley, forming a sheltered and picturesque setting, interspersed with mature hedgerows and established trees, the valley provides a substantial block of productive land, ideal for livestock but with approximately half being suitable for temporary grass/arable use, all with high amenity, environmental and wildlife value, with an existing countryside stewardship scheme.
