Honeywood Farm comprises a mixture of pasture, woodland and a lake, with strong amenity appeal lying in a desirable location close to the historic city of Canterbury. It is situated in a gently sloping valley surrounded by Forestry Commission and Kent Wildlife Trust woodland and benefits from good access onto the Hackington road.
Lot 1 (shown pink on the plan) - 46 acres pasture, lake and woodland
This comprises circa 32 acres of Grade 3 pasture which over the last 30 years has been used for cereals, Christmas trees and top fruit production. It has been managed as low-input pasture for a number of years and forms a natural gentle valley towards a 3 acre lake which is thought to hold around 5 million gallons of water. The lake was man-made in the 1970's and is stream-fed, currently supporting an abundance of carp, bream and roach for commercial coarse fishing. The remaining acreage is a spinney/small woodland which provides useful shelter for the lake. Access is via double gates off Hackington Road, opposite Frog Hall, marked B on the plan.
