The farm land lies predominantly to the north and west of the main farmstead, affording great protection and amenity to the property as a whole. The land sits in a single block and is mainly accessed from the farm yard through various farm tracks. One field can also be accessed from the public highway off Norwood Hill Road.
The majority of the land is pasture with good sized field enclosures. The land is gently undulating and interspersed with mature belts of woodland. The fields are well fenced and most have access to water troughs, apart from some of the northern fields which are used as hay meadows. The land is classified as being Grade 3 & 4 with the soil type being predominantly of the Denchworth series, a fine loam over clayey soil.
A feature across the farm are earth bunds lining some of the track ways which help to enhance the environmental credentials of the farm. There is a lake in the middle of the farm which although not currently stocked has potential for fishing.
