Newlands Farm represents the opportunity to acquire a ring fenced smallholding extending to approximately 31.61 Hectares (78.11 Acres). The land is currently laid to pasture and comprises a block of mature woodland and range of farm buildings.
The land is gently undulating with the majority classified as Grade 3 land with some Grade 2 to the southern part. The boundaries are predominantly made up of mature trees, hedges and ditches. Good access is provided from the Public Highway through the farm buildings onto an established track running through the centre of the farm. Of the whole, the land extends to approximately 26.83 Hectares (66.30 Acres). According to the Soil Survey of England and Wales, the soils are of the Burlingham, Fincham and Freckingham soil series and are known to be loamy and sandy.
The land is currently under a grass ley rotation and has been used for the production of silage, hay, haylage and general grazing. An application was made to Natural England in November 2018 for the conversion of the pasture land back into arable production which was approved on 13th December 2018.
There is a block of mature woodland located on the eastern boundary of the property with rides cut through the centre extending to approximately 2.64 Hectares (6.53 Acres).
