DESCRIPTION

This is a rare opportunity to purchase 12.534 acres of land in a tranquil rural setting. The land has access from the lane, beyond which the lane becomes a bridleway. The land is divided into a number of paddocks/fields. There are a variety of mature fruit trees in two small orchard areas which include: damsons, three types of apple, and two types of plum. The owners have planted three small areas of woodland creation, including a conifer stand, for which we are informed the grants for 2017/18 will be £555.30 and £281.70. These could be thinned over time or harvested to create more pasture or arable land. The land is bordered by ancient woodland. The land offers excellent potential for use as a small holding, equestrian or recreational uses. There are no services on the land. However, we are informed that water and electricity are available in the lane. There is one public footpath running along the southern edge of the land and continuing into the bordering woodland. The bridleway runs through the land but is well fenced from it.
