Extending to 7.794 hectares (19.25 acres), the land is located in one block and split into 3 principal fields. Accessed directly from the public highway via a 5 bar wooden gate, the land stretches back from the road, adjoining Meesdenhall Wood.
The land is classed as Grade 2 on the Provisional Land Classification Map and the soil type is identified on the soil survey of England and Wales as Hanslope, being slowly permeable calcareous and non calcareous clayey soils suitable for winter cereals and grassland.
The land, which is gently undulating, has been laid to grass for several years and is currently grazed by sheep and horses. The land benefits from fencing and a water supply. There are cross country jumps within the fences located around the land, providing additional equestrian appeal. The land adjoins Meesdenhall Wood and there is a pond located towards the middle.
