The Land

The land. Extends to approximately just over 40 acres. And can be found as per the schedule adjacent with the entire land area to be sold found and identified in red on the enclosed plan. Overall the majority of the land is pasture with some small areas of woodland with approximately 8 acres of mixed woodland and other small woodland enclosures with useful shelter. Overall the land has gentle undulations with some of the most breath-taking views in the county to be found towards the south and west boundaries.

The property has its own driveway, the majority of which has recently been tarmacked, which sweeps past the buildings next to a large pond and then into the main parking and turning area.

It is also noted, just outside the boundary of the property, (although just dips inside for a small stretch through the woodland) is the popular Offa's Dyke, which is described as a large linear earth work, which roughly follows the current border between England and Wales.

It is believed that the structure is named after the Anglo Saxon king of Mercia, Offa, from AD757 until AD796, who ordered its construction, although its precise original use is debated, it did de-lineate the border between Anglian Mercia and The Welsh Kingdom of Powys. This lies alongside the farmstead and is very popular with walkers and tourists.

Please note that all land schedules have been derived from the Welsh Assembly's Basic Payment Maps.
