AGENTS NOTE The seller advises that the property has the benefit of a right of way over and along the private road to the front of the property leading from Westwood farmhouse. The costs of the maintenance of this section of the lane is shared between 3 properties and the farm owner and any work arranged by these parties as and when required. The road was last resurfaced in 2013. Please also note that whilst we are not marketing the land as suitable for equestrian use, the paddock would be suitable for a pony/ponies. It would also be ideal for the smallholder with grazing for sheep or goats, and plenty of space to keep chickens and bees. Alternatively, it could be enjoyed as a private nature reserve, with its exceptional diversity of wildlife.

The field adjacent to the property contains a fenced off memorial tree in a very small area of land that has been retained by the previous owner, who has a right of access across the field to the tree area but not across any other part of the property such as the garden or woodland.

SERVICES Electricity, oil storage, mains water, septic tank and broadband.
